Ontario Power Generation’s new subsidiary, PowerON Energy Solutions, will provide electrification and charging infrastructure that enables municipal transit agencies and other corporate fleets to power their vehicles using clean electricity.
PowerON supports large-scale electrification projects by providing turnkey solutions encompassing all electrical infrastructure from the electricity grid connection to vehicle chargers, including:
- Infrastructure delivery and project management;
- Operations and maintenance;
- On-site generation, battery storage and back-up power; and,
- Smart charging and energy management.
“PowerON is leveraging Ontario’s clean electricity to help decarbonize other sectors,” said PowerON’s Theresa Dekker. “We know electrification of transportation is a high impact strategy to help meet climate change goals, and we have the infrastructure and large project expertise necessary to enable municipal and other fleets to make the transition.”
The new OPG subsidiary minimizes the risk of electrification for fleets by taking on the construction and operation of charging infrastructure, greatly simplifying the process, and allowing fleets to focus on their core operations. PowerON’s solution reduces cost and time to electrify while significantly increasing charging reliability for fleets.
“As our government continues to expand and improve Ontario’s transportation network, it is important that municipalities have the opportunity to power their transit with clean electricity,” said Caroline Mulroney, Minister of Transportation. “To help lead that transition, PowerON will leverage their expertise to create a greener future across our province and support economic growth.”
The company also works with customers on finding solutions to manage the up-front cost of electrification.
“Ontario’s grid, one of the cleanest in the world, is well-placed to support electrification of transportation and other sectors,” said Ontario Minister of Energy Todd Smith. “We welcome creation of PowerON to help Ontario fleets use the province’s clean energy to drive economic growth.”
