Electric Car Charging Points Of NB Power Not Generating More Revenue

The electric car charging units offered by the NB Power at public places is not getting the returns on investment that was initially thought. This is because there are very less number of electric cars running in the New Brunswick province. Many car charging stations were running less than an hour in a week in December.

But, this is not deterring the NB Power from installing more charging points in the province. The Energy and Utilities Board has asked the NB Power to furnish the details of its car charging stations investment details.

The NB Power is looking to join hands with the federal government and the NB government to add more car charging stations this year. They will be investing about $3 million for the expansion of the car charging station.

They want the sales of the electrical cars in NB to increase. With many customers buying the electric cars that are very less polluting, there will be a huge demand for the charging stations in NB.

The NB Power feels that there needs to be more emphasis given on using electric cars in the province by the leadership.

The Vice President of the Business Development of NB Power, Keith Cronkhite, said that they do not have any plans of coming out with charging points in every street and community.
