EV charging ports to be deployed by FLO and METRO

QUEBEC City, Canada – FLO, a leading North American electric vehicle (EV) charging company and METRO Inc. announced a new partnership to provide fast charging at more than 130 grocery store locations across Quebec and Ontario. The partnership will install at least 500 fast charging ports in Metro, Super C, Food Basics and Marché Adonis locations starting in August.


“This partnership is about integrating the best EV charging experience into daily life and making it as routine as grocery shopping,” said Louis Tremblay, FLO president and CEO.  “Making public charging options widely available is key for Canada to achieve its environmental goals and transition to an emission-free transportation sector. By establishing fast charging stations at more than 130 grocery stores across Quebec and Ontario, we’re laying the groundwork to accelerate the transition.”

“METRO is committed to adopting short-term, science-based greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction targets for its direct and indirect emissions,” said Michel Avigliano, VP of Real Estate and Engineering at METRO. “Through this partnership, we are taking action to reduce our indirect emissions linked to the transport of our customers, while contributing to the collective effort of transition towards a more low-carbon economy.”

A significant number of these new installations are supported by  FLO’s partnership with the Canada Infrastructure Bank (CIB), which committed C$235 million to FLO bringing more than 1,900 public fast charging ports online across Canadaby 2027.

The installations will feature the new dual port FLO Ultra fast charger, compatible with multiple makes and models.  With up to 320 kW of available power, the FLO Ultra charger will charge most new EVs to 80% in 15 minutes.
