The North Coast Regional District (NCRD) community of Sandspit, B.C. is now outfitted with a Level 2 electric vehicle (EV) charging station. With a prime location at the Sandspit Community Hall (411 Alliford Bay Road), drivers can now plug in and charge.

The Sandspit Level 2 EV charging station is one of two EV charging stations available on Haida Gwaii. The other station is located at the Old Fire Hall (1674 Main Street) in Masset, B.C.

The two Haida Gwaii EV charging stations were installed as part of the Charge North project. Charge North is currently installing 58 Level 2 chargers across northern B.C., including in the communities of Prince Rupert and Terrace. An additional two Level 2 chargers are to be installed in Tow Hill and Daajing Giids in summer 2023.
