Charlottetown’s First Public Fast EV Charger

The first public high-speed electric vehicle charger in Charlottetown is on the brink of opening. You’ll find it in the corner of the Canadian Tire parking lot.

While it can take up to 24 hours to charge our Kia Soul EV from a standard outlet, 5 hours from the level 2 charger pending installation off our driveway, this new DC charger should get the Soul to 80% charged in about 30 minutes.

Fast charging like this is the infrastructure that enables longer-distance EV trips, and the network of 6 DC chargers that Efficiency PEI is about to launch will be a welcome addition for EV owners looking to visit friends east and west.

Hi Peter, I am surprised to find out that Charlottetown didn't have a charger. Even Vermilion,AB has one!
