The partners say that British Columbia leads the way in EV adoption in Canada, and Parkland's commitment will provide a critical and convenient charging service to the public while accelerating Canada's goal of net-zero emissions by 2050.

The initial phase of the partnership will deploy FreeWire's Boost Charger, 150 kW ultra-fast EV charging stations, at 25 sites in British Columbia, from Victoria to Calgary. Charging locations were strategically selected to provide an essential charging service in dense urban locations, to remote destinations along major thoroughfares.

FreeWire's battery-integrated Boost Charger allows customers to receive 200 miles of range in 15 minutes. The Boost Charger plugs into existing low-voltage utility service and delivers high-power charging that typically requires extensive site improvements and grid upgrades. The flexibility of the Boost Charger solution means that significantly more locations will benefit from ultrafast charging, helping companies and countries meet ambitious goals.
