FLO and Hydro-Quebec collaborate to supply 7,500 EV chargers

More than 7,500 new Level 2 EV chargers are coming to Quebec between now and 2026, through an extension of the partnership between FLO, a subsidiary of AddEnergie, and Hydro-Québec, owner of the Electric Circuit EV charging network. This will be FLO’s biggest contract since its inception.

“We’re thrilled to have been selected once again as a partner to Electric Circuit in this latest tender,” said Louis Tremblay, FLO’s President and CEO. “FLO chargers are hailed across North America for being especially robust, reliable, and durable. It’s been almost a decade since FLO and Hydro-Québec started working together to electrify Quebec and expand EV charging infrastructure, helping to improve accessibility and ensure drivers have reliable charging experiences. This latest victory is a vote of confidence in FLO’s products and services, and we look forward to offering our continued support to Hydro-Québec in its endeavours to accelerate the electrification of transportation, not only for another 10 years, but for many more years to come.”

The first partnership between these charging giants was in 2013, and since then, FLO has supplied Hydro-Québec with approximately 4,500 EV chargers across Quebec, split between approximately 3,800 Level 2 chargers and 700 Level 3 (DC) chargers. According to the dual press release,”the latest contract between the two parties will see FLO install almost twice as many Level 2 chargers in just the next four years.”

“We are pleased to expand our longstanding relationship with FLO, especially at a time when the world as a whole, and Quebeckers in particular, are rapidly shifting to electric vehicles,” said France Lampron, Director–E-Mobility at Hydro-Québec. “Providing Quebeckers and visitors alike with thousands more stations where they can charge their vehicles on the go at thousands of convenient locations, is at the heart of Quebec’s plan to electrify our community. As a clean energy transition leader, Hydro-Québec is very proud of this major leap in the right direction towards making our community cleaner and transportation more environmentally-friendly.”

Of the 7,500 Level 2 chargers FLO will supply under the new contract, 3,000 will be public curbside chargers on the road, 2,000 will be for Hydro-Québec’s fleet, and 2,500 for other usages such as businesses and municipalities.
