FLO collaborates with Baseload to launch new AURA EV charging network
Quebec City, QC – July 4, 2022: As part of FLO’s sustained growth, the electric vehicle (EV) charging network operator and smart charging solutions provider has partnered with Baseload Power Corp. (Baseload), an innovative Canadian electricity infrastructure company with a core focus on renewable energy, energy storage, and electric vehicle charging, to launch Baseload’s new EV charging network Aura EV Charging.
“FLO’s expansion across principal locations in Canada, particularly in Ontario, has been key in the network’s overall growth, providing EV drivers with the service that they expect and deserve, and we are very pleased to support Aura EV Charging and Baseload in this major deployment,” said Louis Tremblay, FLO President and CEO. “The Level 3 FLO-powered charging stations that Baseload has installed so far will serve EV drivers at busy sites where people shop, dine, and spend leisure time. Now they will be able to do that while leaving their vehicles charging safely. These stations have been selected carefully to ensure people can enjoy a DC fast charge, 30 minutes on average, without placing undue stress on the power grid at these busy locations.”
One of the locations where the first Aura chargers were deployed is the Burlington Centre, a busy shopping mall in Burlington, Ontario.
Aura EV Charging stations, supported by FLO’s equipment and operating system, will provide customers with a high-quality charging experience and premium service. FLO and Baseload will collaborate on deploying the Aura EV Charging stations across Canada.
“Baseload is thrilled to partner with FLO for the delivery and operations of our expanding EV charging network,” said Jonathan Sandler, President of Baseload Power. “We share the same value of creating a more sustainable future, and by increasing EV infrastructure we’re able to help decarbonize our transportation industry and help meet Canada’s emissions targets.”
Aura will offer multi-level charging speeds for commercial, office, fleet, and home applications, and its network of public fast charging stations are located at Canada’s premier retail properties that are home to Tier 1 amenities. EV drivers can easily access Aura chargers anywhere via their FLO smartphone application and use the app or RFID card to charge their EV anytime.
