The 500 electric vehicles that run through the city of London will have another spot to load their cars. Dundas at Wellington has now received the third station.
This new station will make it easier for Londoners that choose low-carbon vehicles and for $1.50 people can charge their car for a couple of hours, while enjoying their time at downtown, but they also need to pay a regular parking cost.
The installation of stations like that, had a price tag of $39,000, and it is important to say that vehicles that is non-electric, will not be allowed to use the parking in front of the charging stations.
These charging stations are specially designed for curbside installation on city streets and can charge up to two EV’s (electric vehicles) at once.
During the launch, MP Peter Fragiskatos said that it is innovative and the government is committed to clean technology.
“Curbside charging stations like this one, will give electric vehicle drivers the infrastructure needed to travel Canadian urban streets with greater ease and will provide the tools needed to make cleaner choices in the transportation sector.”
Developed by FLO, a subsidiary company of AddEnergie, a North American leader in electric vehicle charging solutions, the London EV station is one of the 100 new urban charging station spaces the company will be demonstrating in cities across Canada.
The launched toke place this morning and included Deputy Mayor Paul Hubert, MP Peter Fragiskatos and representatives from London Hydro, FLO and the London Electric Vehicle Association.
