Eastern Health is in the process of installing six new electric car charging stations near the Janeway Hospital.
Regional Director of Infrastructure Support with the health authority, Joe Dunford says it’s all part of a much bigger project.
He says construction of the new Molecular Imaging Centre must meet LEED standards involving green and energy efficient initiatives.
While there may not be that many electric cars on the roads right now, they’re trying to meet new expectations.
He says they’re not the first to install charging stations, with Labrador-Grenfell and Central Health also having done so.
The charging stations will be ready to go by August.
