Toronto celebrates 100th fast charging station

Canada (Nicolas Raymond)

Toronto recently celebrated the official opening of the city’s 100th public DC fast charger. The new charger is located at the CF Toronto Eaton Centre, a Cadillac Fairview property.

AddÉnergie Technologies, which owns and operates the FLO charging network, has received a  $750,000 grant from Canada’s Electric Vehicle and Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Deployment Initiative to build 15 public fast chargers at Cadillac Fairview shopping malls in New Brunswick, Quebec, Ontario and Manitoba. This is part of $182.5 million that the Canadian government has pledged to invest in a coast-to-coast network of EV charging, natural gas and hydrogen stations.

“It is essential that we make driving electric as easy and convenient as possible for Canadians because of the importance of lowering our transportation greenhouse gas emissions,” said AddÉnergie VP of Public Affairs Travis Allan. “This collaboration by Cadillac Fairview, FLO and NRCan, under Canada’s forward-thinking program to facilitate charging infrastructure deployment, demonstrates what is possible when government and industry leaders share a commitment to supporting electric vehicle adoption.”

    The Ontario government has done a terrible job with respect to EV chargers. Yes they pay to have them installed but many are improperly maintained and do not work. (The 2 IKEA level 3 chargers have been out of service for over 6 months. The Belleville charger takes peoples money but only provides a low charge rate and no one has fixed it for over a year now.)
