Petit-Rocher's latest addition to the region's electric vehicle charging network is a provincial first.

The new double charging station unveiled Thursday is equipped with photovoltaic shade technology;  a first in New Brunswick.

It's designed to provide shade while generating solar power.

The new charging station is located at the Maison de l'Acadie on Rue Principale.
