Nova Scotia Launches Network of 12 New Fast Charging Stations

FLO is proud to take part in a large-scale installation of 12 fast charging stations and level 2 charging stations led by Nova Scotia Power across Nova Scotia. This forward-thinking project will significantly advance the province’s existing charging infrastructure and address crucial needs to support electric vehicle adoption in Nova Scotia. 

FLO was selected by Nova Scotia Power to provide the charging equipment and operate the stations, which will be part of the Canada-wide FLO Network that includes more than 4,500 charging locations around the country.

The 12 fast charging stations are strategically located in convenient locations near highways to enable EV drivers to easily travel throughout the province, free of range anxiety. The sites are located at:

  • Shell – 87 Starrs Rd, Yarmouth, NS B5A 2T5
  • Digby – 110 Warwick St, Digby, NS B0V 1A0

All sites are expected to be operational by the end of the month.

Funding for the project is provided by Natural Resources Canada, Emera Inc., Nova Scotia Power’s parent company and the Government of Nova Scotia.

Prior to this deployment, Nova Scotia was equipped with just two universal fast charging stations. This new stations will not only facilitate travels within the province, but also across the Maritimes. EV drivers will be able to connect with New Brunswick's eCharge Network, one of FLO's partner networks, which includes more than a dozen fast charging stations across the province.

You can locate the new charging site on our interactive map or check the stations' availability in real time using the FLO mobile app.
