Electrify Canada Expands Network with New Electric Vehicle Charging Station in Kelowna

Kelowna is the third of nine DC fast charging locations to open in British Columbia this year

Toronto, ON (August 21, 2020) – Electrify Canada continues the rollout of its electric vehicle (EV) ultra-fast charging network in British Columbia with the opening of a new location in Kelowna. Situated at the Canadian Tire store at 1655 Leckie Road, the station is equipped with four direct current (DC) fast chargers with speeds of 150kW up to 350kW for EV drivers to charge quickly while on the go.

Electrify Canada’s charging stations are thoughtfully positioned along popular routes, including the Trans-Canada Highway and major highways. The newly opened Kelowna station is no exception, offering easy access for both locals and visitors with its proximity to Highway 97. The station is also conveniently located within walking distance of local businesses, shopping centres, and parks for customers to enjoy while their vehicle charges. 

“Electrify Canada aims to support the electric driving community by placing our charging stations in the places drivers need them the most,” said Robert Barrosa, chief operating officer, Electrify Canada. “With nine new ultra-fast charging stations across British Columbia by the end of this year, more EV drivers will be able to traverse the province with confidence and ease.”

The charging station in Kelowna is the third of nine Electrify Canada B.C. locations announced earlier this year. Each station offers chargers that provide the fastest charging possible for capable EVs in Canada today. Drivers can access the stations by downloading the Electrify Canada app or using their credit card at the station.

Electrify Canada’s goal is to drive EV adoption in Canada by building quality, fast-charging stations that are convenient and accessible. The network is working to install 32 locations with 128 chargers across four provinces.
