The Provincial Government of Newfoundland and Labrador is providing $52,000 through the Green Fund, launched in 2007 with a combination of federal and provincial funds, to help with the supply and installation of five residential and 14 commercial electric vehicle charging stations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The funding will be awarded to Green Rock Electric Vehicle Solutions (Green Rock EVS).
“This investment supports our government’s commitment to making strategic economic decisions based on providing a clean, sustainable environment and healthy ecosystems for generations to come,” said Dan Crummell, Minister of Environment and Conservation and Minister Responsible for Climate Change and Energy Efficiency.
The electric vehicle charging units developed by Green Rock EVS will be available for use by the public at no cost for at least three years following their installation. There are currently 18 electric vehicles and 50 electric vehicle stations in the province.
“We are grateful for the support we have received from the Provincial Government through the Newfoundland and Labrador Green Fund. This allows us to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while providing electric vehicle charging stations here in Newfoundland and Labrador. It is exciting to contribute to the environmental and economic growth in the province,” commented John Gordon, President, Green Rock EVS.
