Quispamsis Examining Viability of Electric Cars

You could soon be plugging in instead of gassing up in Quispamsis.

The town is looking into the possibility of taking part in NB Power's electric car program. Mayor Murray Driscoll tells CHSJ News they've been using hybrid vehicles for the last three years, so going electric would just be the next logical step.

As one of the first municipalities in the province to engage with NB Power on their electric car program, Driscoll says they're taking the lead. NB Power is also in talks with other towns and cities including Rothesay, Fredericton and Bathurst.

The town will be doing an analysis to see what it would take to participate.
