Go with the flo

A few of you wrote to IMAGE noting a curious new addition near 301 Laurier Ave. E., across from Amnesty International. It’s a curbside electric vehicle charging station equipped with two 7 kW charging points.

According to AddEnergie, the Quebec City headquartered company that oversees the FLO electric vehicle charging network, the stations were purchased and installed by the City of Ottawa, in collaboration with Envari Energy Solutions.

As part of this recent deployment, FLO stations will be installed at a dozen new sites across Ottawa. These stations can be located and used by downloading the FLO EV Charging app. While this is currently the only station in Sandy Hill, there are others nearby at the Rideau Centre and Ottawa City Hall.

Says Sylvain Bouffard, the Director of Communications and Public Affairs at FLO, “We are very excited to see our first curbside stations being installed in Ottawa, as we know these are very important in making EV ownership accessible to all, especially those without a private parking space equipped with a residential charging option.”
