NB Power

November 9, 2017

NB Power has announced the completion of the first phase of the fast-charging infrastructure along the TransCanada highway with commissioning of a fast-charging station in Moncton at the Magnetic Hill Irving. Electric vehicles (EV) can now charge up in the parking lot at 2731 Mountain Road in Moncton at a fast-charging or standard level-2 station.

“NB Power is proud to ‘lead the charge’ in establishing infrastructure needed to support the adoption of electric vehicles in New Brunswick,” said Keith Cronkhite, senior vice-president of business development and strategic planning at NB Power. “Using the NB Power eCharge Network’s charging stations for electric vehicles, New Brunswickers can save significantly on fuel costs and lessen their impact on the environment.”

“We’re thrilled to work with NB Power to offer a new energy option for our customers at the Magnetic Hill Irving,” said Jason Lutes, owner of the Magnetic Hill Irving. “Electric vehicle drivers can now stop here to recharge while enjoying our service station’s amenities.”

“This electric vehicle network provides New Brunswickers the confidence and convenience they need to make cleaner choices the next time they buy a vehicle,” said the Honourable Ginette Petitpas Taylor, Member of Parliament for Moncton — Riverview — Dieppe, on behalf of the Honourable Jim Carr, Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources. “The Government of Canada continues to support green infrastructure in the transportation sector that will advance Canada’s efforts to build a clean economy, create well-paying jobs, and achieve our climate change goals.”

The Magnetic Hill Irving is the tenth fast-charging site along the Trans-Canada Highway, completing the first phase of fast-charging infrastructure roll-out.

The eCharge Network is made up of 19 standard level-2 (240 Volt) and 10 fast (400 Volt) charging stations located throughout the province. The network aims to enable drivers of electric vehicles to travel around New Brunswick.

Electric vehicle drivers can sign up to the eCharge Network online and download the eCharge Network app for iOS and Android to locate charging stations, add credits to their account and access charging stations.

Today we are all concerned with the energy we consume within our homes. But how many truly understand the ins and outs of home energy use, and where exactly does the electrician and the development of energy management systems come into play. There is much to consider when discussing home energy use. The consumer first off needs to be informed about energy use, how it is calculated and ultimately billed if they are to make changes to their energy consumption rates.

And beyond that are manufacturers developing products designed to help electricians and consumers better understand residential energy use? Throughout this article we will deal with each of these important questions.

Jeremy Herrington

Total Electrical Solutions was founded in 2013 by Jeremy Herrington in Quispamsis, on the outskirts of Saint John, New Brunswick. Since 2013 Jeremy has steadily grown Total Electrical Solutions in the residential, commercial and construction sectors. The growth is primarily the result of Jeremy’s customer first philosophy, plus his over 20 years of industry experience.

Jeremy grew up learning about the industry from his father who was an electrical contractor. Jeremy spent his early years helping and watching his father as a contractor and business owner. After high school Jeremy was, like many, not wholly aware of the course he wished to take and so he began an electrical apprenticeship at his father’s company.
