As electric vehicle’s continue to rise in popularity, the infrastructure needs to be in place to make driving them long distances a possibility. Just as gas-powered cars need gasoline from a gas station, electric vehicles need to charge with electricity.
A network of fast charges have been installed across the province along the Trans Canada Highway between St. John’s and Port aux Basques.
The original project was undertaken by NL Hydro. They went through a detailed process to determine exactly where the chargers should be located.

In addition to the 14 chargers originally installed by NL Hydro, additional chargers have been installed in other communities allowing EV drivers to get farther off the beaten path.
Most EVs are charged using home chargers which usually provides lots of juice for getting around town. If you’re on the go a lot, there are already many convenient chargers located around the province. You can locate charging stations in Newfoundland using PlugShare.
The TakeCHARGE website has lots of info about owning an electric vehicle in Newfoundland.
