Petro-Canada’s network of fast chargers
Petro-Canada, is building a network of over 50 electric vehicle (EV) fast charging stations across Canada. They will be located on the Trans-Canada highway at Petro-Canada stations from Nova Scotia to British Columbia.
“Keeping Canadians moving is what we do. We know the needs of our customers are evolving as we transition to a low-carbon future which is why we are excited to expand our current offering to support this growing customer segment,” said Kris Smith, Executive Vice-President, Downstream, Suncor. “With more than 1,800 retail and wholesale locations across the country we have the network in place to build Canada’s first electric highway, providing coast-to-coast EV charging for our customers. We’re also investing in the fastest charging EV technology available today, which will be able to easily upgrade as technology advances.”
The stations will have DC fast chargers with both CHAdeMO and CCS/SAE connectors. The chargers can provide up to a 200 kilowatt charge and are capable of 350 kilowatt charging with future upgrades. Construction will begin in the spring with locations opening over the coming year.
A test site is currently operational in Milton, Ontario. A full list of sites can be found at: petro-canada.ca/ev.
