Nine level two chargers are already located at participating municipalities and businesses throughout the province and NB Power says the new locations will be installed by the end of this year.

It says the aim is to make it easy for owners of electric vehicles to drive wherever they want in New Brunswick, and to encourage more drivers to consider buying an electric vehicle.
