FLO Electrifies Phoenix Contact U.S. Headquarters With Solar-Powered EV Chargers
Workplace charging solutions offer an additional perk for employees driving EVs
HARRISBURG, PA – FLO, a leading North American electric vehicle (EV) charging company and a smart charging solutions provider, announced it will supply workplace EV charging solutions at the headquarters of Phoenix Contact USA. Four dual port CoRe+ chargers will be installed, providing a seamless and reliable charging experience to Phoenix Contact’s employees. FLO has provided similar workplace charging solutions to Phoenix Contact Canada employees at locations in Ontario.
“We are thrilled to continue our relationship with Phoenix Contact—this time across the border at its U.S. headquarters,” said Louis Tremblay, President and CEO of FLO. “FLO’s highly reliable charging stations will enable employees to charge up while their cars are sitting idle for hours at a time. We applaud Phoenix Contact for providing this additional perk to employees who have made the switch to an EV.”
FLO’s innovative technology will be part of a distributed and sustainable system featuring a 110kW solar carport, 180kW battery storage, and EV charging stations. The charging stations will also feature an Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) enabling FLO to pull power from the grid if there is not enough solar power generated and stored for EV charging demand as well as, feed excess solar generated electric to be utilized by the main facility in the event the battery storage is full.
“After hearing great reviews from our Canadian colleagues, we have no doubt FLO is the perfect partner for our next expansion to our workplace EV charging infrastructure,” said Doug Ferguson SVP, Americas Operations Svs. “We are excited to bring this new sustainable solar/EV project to our U.S. campus, and provide the employee benefit of free charging.”
Phoenix Contact USA was founded in 1981 and employs more than 1,000 people in the U.S., including 800 at its U.S. headquarters in Pennsylvania. Its headquarters is home to its manufacturing and distribution centers for the Americas and provides American customers faster and more personalized service.
“It’s commitments like this that will expedite EV adoption and usher in a cleaner transportation future,” added Tremblay.
