Hydro-Québec, owner of the Electric Circuit EV charging network in Canada, has selected fellow Quebecois charging provider FLO, a subsidiary of AddEnergie, to supply the Electric Circuit with up to 7,500 Level 2 chargers between 2022 and 2026.
The two Canadian companies have been collaborating since 2013. FLO has already supplied Hydro-Quebec with around 4,500 electric vehicle chargers in Quebec – around 3,800 of which have been AC chargers (Level 2) and 700 CD fast chargers (Level 3).
With the latest collaboration between the two Canadian companies, FLO says it is set to install almost two times the number of Level 2 chargers in the next four years. The 7,500 Level 2 chargers will be divided up into 3,000 for public curbside charging, and 2,000 for Hydro-Quebec’s fleet, while the remaining 2,500 will be installed in businesses and municipalities.
“We are pleased to expand our longstanding relationship with FLO, especially at a time when the world as a whole, and Quebeckers in particular, are rapidly shifting to electric vehicles,” said France Lampron, Director – E-Mobility at Hydro-Québec. “Providing Quebeckers and visitors alike with thousands more stations where they can charge their vehicles on the go at thousands of convenient locations, is at the heart of Quebec’s plan to electrify our community.”
This latest large order is FLO’s biggest since the company was founded by AddEnergie. Earlier this month, the Canadian company announced plans to build a new factory in the USA.
