As part of its aim to launch a national electric vehicle (EV) charging program this year, Cadillac Fairview (CF) has deployed its first series of networked chargers at four CF shopping centres in Montréal.
CF's new EV charging stations are now active at CF's Greater Montréal shopping centre properties including, CF Fairview Pointe-Claire, CF Carrefour Laval, CF Galeries d'Anjou, and CF Promenades St. Bruno. Developed in partnership with FLO, the charging stations are connected to the FLO charging network, which includes more than 3,000 stations across Canada.
"At Cadillac Fairview, we are in constant pursuit of innovative ways to help to build stronger and greener communities across the country," says Sal Iacono, Executive Vice President, Operations, Cadillac Fairview. "Through our partnership with FLO, we're able to provide our guests with a best-in-class experience with a unique amenity that promote sustainability, as well as a low carbon future in Canada."
CF is committed to offering Canadians 45 new EV chargers at various CF properties.
"As a proudly Canadian company, continuing to roll out charging stations throughout the country to fulfil EV drivers' needs wherever they are - at home, at work or on the go - is what we have been striving for," adds Louis Tremblay, President and CEO of FLO. "We've developed a strong partnership with Cadillac Fairview that is allowing us to encourage and facilitate EV adoption in Canada and we look forward to a bright future together."
In Quebec, eight new level 2 chargers and four new universal fast chargers have been deployed at CF properties. Throughout the rest of Canada, CF will deploy an additional 22 level 2 chargers and 11 universal fast chargers across 11 other sites, with the potential for more to be announced in the coming months.
