Irving Oil unveils first company-branded electric vehicle fast chargers
Providence (RI) – Irving Oil has introduced its first Irving-branded electric vehicle (EV) chargers – demonstrating the company’s commitment to continue expanding its EV network under the Irving brand.
The two Irving-branded ChargePoint CPE 250 chargers are located at a new Irving Oil / Rusty Lantern Market retail location in Providence, Rhode Island. They are the first of several new Irving-branded chargers to open in New England later this year.
Each level 3, or direct-current fast charger (DCFC) is 62.5kW, with the ability to be paired together to charge up to 125kW. Customers can pay using the ChargePoint app or by using a ChargePoint card.
“We’ve been proud to provide the energy our customers need for nearly 100 years, and as those needs evolve, our commitment to our customers remains strong. As we expand our EV offerings, these new Irving-branded chargers symbolize the continued evolution of our business as our customers transition to zero-emissions vehicles,” said Irving Oil Executive Vice President and Chief Brand Officer, Sarah Irving.
Irving Oil is a leading EV-charging host at fuelling stations in Atlantic Canada, with a growing number of chargers hosted across its retail network in New England and Quebec. Through partnerships with Tesla, NB Power, Newfoundland Hydro and others, the Irving retail network now hosts more than 70 EV chargers in Atlantic Canada and 54 in New England. More information on the company’s EV network can be viewed at www.irvingoil.com/evcharging.
The commissioning of these new and first-of-their-kind Irving-branded chargers in New England, which opened with support from Rhode Island Energy and the Rhode Island Office of Energy Resources, demonstrates an exciting step in the company’s continued commitment to developing sustainable solutions now and in the future.
