OTTAWA—On April 24, Hydro Ottawa announced a partnership with Canada’s largest electric vehicle charging network provider, FLO, to pilot 100 level two charging stations with residential customers in Ottawa.
The pilot project will be rolled out in the coming months, and Hydro Ottawa says it is intended to help the utility understand residential EV demands on the electricity grid.
“As Ottawa’s local electricity provider we are in a unique position to help accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles in Ottawa. This pilot project with FLO will allow us to learn the impacts of EVs and charging stations on our electricity grid; helping us pave the way to better support electric vehicles in Ottawa,” said Bryce Conrad, CEO and president, Hydro Ottawa.https://www.canadianmanufacturing.com/environment-and-safety/hydro-ottawa-and-flo-to-pilot-residential-charging-stations-in-ottawa-212191/
