Ford to expand network of workplace charging stations in US and Canada
The carmaker currently has 145 units available for employee use at 43 Ford offices and manufacturing facilities in six US states and Canada.
More than 349 Ford employees are using the charging stations, which have delivered nearly 92,000 kilowatt-hours of energy since they were installed last year; enough to power up to 10 homes annually.
Ford added that it is in ongoing discussions to increase the number in the long term.
“Providing a charging network at Ford facilities not only benefits our employees, but builds upon our commitment to the electrification program and developing environmentally conscious vehicles,” said Cynthia Williams, Ford associate director, environmental and regulatory planning. “Ford is striving to deliver quality products and sustainable manufacturing, and to make eco-conscious vehicles easier to use.”
