In a news release, the President and CEO of Epcor said this:
Rolling out more options for drivers looking to support a greener future is what Energizing Edmonton is all about. The new EV charging sites were selected in collaboration with our partners in the City of Edmonton — keeping the needs of drivers top of mind. And not only are these chargers conveniently located in all quadrants of the city, commuters can plug in for free.
Epcor’s Energizing Edmonton is a joint partnership between the City of Edmonton and Epcor.
The program has partnered with FLO to install EV chargers in key locations throughout Edmonton.
