Through a shared vision for sustainability and a commitment to "Build Smart, Live Smart™", Koben Systems Inc and Empire Communities are leading the way towards enabling faster consumer adoption for electric vehicles in the second phase build-out of the Imagine Community development in the Niagara region of Ontario.
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 of Ontario.
"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".
