Steer towards sustainability!

Folks from Clean Foundation brought electric vehicle test drives to Inverness County during August to show residents that plugging in to a cleaner, greener future is becoming more accessible.

Nova Scotians are eligible to receive a significant rebate through the Electrify program. For example, you can get $500 back when purchasing an e-bike for $1,200 or more if certain criteria are met. Rebates of up to $3000 are available when purchasing certain electric cars.

Rebates are on a first come, first served basis until the program budget is exhausted.

Earlier this year, in partnership with Clean, the municipality installed a total of 10 electric vehicle charging stations in Grand-Étang, Inverness, Mabou, Judique and Whycocomagh. The stations are now supporting electric vehicles on Inverness County roads and contributing to environmental sustainability.

The charging stations were partially funded through Natural Resources Canada (NRCan)’s Zero-Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program (ZEVIP).

“Inverness County is plugging in to a cleaner, greener and more prosperous future. This has been a team effort and the municipality is grateful to Clean Foundation and the Government of Canada for their contribution to making this exciting new infrastructure happen,” said council leader Warden Bonny MacIsaac.
