The Suncor subsidiary Petro-Canada announced the completion of its coast-to-coast network of EV fast chargers. With locations spanning from Nova Scotia to British Columbia, the Trans-Canada highway now allows Canadian EV drivers to cross the country.
Currently the network features more than 50 sites in towns and cities, with each site featuring DC fast chargers with both CHAdeMO and CCS/SAE connectors. The chargers can currently provide up to a 200 kW charging capacity, but are designed in a way to be upgradeable in the future to 350 kW.
The charging network was financially supported through $4.6 million in funding from Canadian government’s Electric Vehicle and Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Deployment Initiative. “Zero emission vehicles are critical to our clean energy future and to combatting climate change. Our government is supporting initiatives like Petro-Canada’s coast-to-coast network of EV fast chargers; putting more electric vehicles on our roads, reducing pollution and creating stronger and more sustainable communities,” said Seamus O’Regan, Canadian Minister of Natural Resources.
