MISSISSAUGA, ON, Nov. 21, 2013 /CNW/ - Empire Communities and partner
Koben Systems Inc. (KSI) today celebrated the official unveiling of the
first electric vehicle charging stations in the newly launched second
phase of Empire's Imagine Community development in the Niagara Region
"Empire's new master-planned community blazes a new trail and sets the
standard for sustainable living in the Niagara region", says Vic
Burconak, President and CEO of Koben Systems Inc.. "With the footprint
and infrastructure that only Empire Communities can offer installation
of EV charging stations in local communities can help tip the balance
for EV adoption in Canada".
"Consumer adoption of EV technology has been slow because of the concern
of accessing reliable, safe and affordable EV charging stations for
daily and long-haul commutes" says Paul Golini, Executive Vice
President of Empire Communities. By partnering with KSI, and installing
electric vehicle charging units right in Imagine Centre of the
community, we are helping to pave the way towards helping Canadians
achieve their desire for energy conservation and greener living. Our
sustainability vision is coming to fruition and this is an important
part of our road to realizing it".

and sustainability products and services, including GE EVSE charging
