Rebate program and $805K funding help bring EV chargers to The Rock

July 26, 2022 – Ottawa is supporting Newfoundland & Labrador Hydro’s effort to install up to 113 electric vehicle chargers across the province with $805,000.
The funding comes from Natural Resources Canada’s Zero-Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program (ZEVIP).
“The new rebate program makes it more affordable for businesses, not-for-profit organizations and municipalities to get ready for our province’s EV future, all while contributing to a more sustainable future for Newfoundland and Labrador,” said Jennifer Williams, president & CEO, Newfoundland & Labrador Hydro.
Through the utility’s Commercial EV Charger Rebate Program, those who would install an EV charger(s) can receive a refund of up to 50% for costs required for installation.
Those recipients, says NRCan, will be selected “through a transparent process, based on demand”.
The chargers are to be installed in public places, on streets, at workplaces or at facilities for serving light-duty vehicle fleets by March 2024.
