Driving an electric vehicle across B.C.’s Columbia Valley just got much easier now that two new fast charging stations have been added to the FLO Network—one in Canal Flats and the other in Radium Hot Springs.
The new stations were introduced as part of the broader Accelerate Kootenays initiative, which aims to deploy 13 fast chargers and 40 Level 2 charging stations in communities across the region over the next few months.
The Radium Hot Springs station is conveniently located at the new community hall (currently under construction) and offers visitors easy access to restaurants, shops and attractions. The fast charger in Canal Flats can be found beside the arena within walking distance to community facilities.
These two charging stations, located along highways 93 and 95, will help ease EV drivers’ range anxiety along the 150-km stretch between Radium Hot Springs and Cranbrook, where another fast charger is already in service.
FLO currently operates more than 200 public charging stations in British Columbia, most of which are Level 2 chargers.
The Accelerate Kootenays project is a two-year, $1.5-million collaboration between local and provincial governments and funding partners that are working together to address the charging infrastructure gap across the region.
You can locate the new chargers on our interactive map or on the FLO mobile app.
