The Delta Chelsea Hotel, Canada’s largest hotel and located in downtown Toronto, has recently installed a Sun Country Highway’s (SCH) publicly accessible electric vehicle (EV) charging station.

Guests of the hotel who travel by EV can conveniently charge their vehicles during their stay. Sun Country Highway’s mission is to ‘Green Canada’s Highway’s’ in collaboration with tourism destinations such as Toronto and this installation will become part of 100 charging stations across Canada before year-end.

“The Delta Chelsea recognizes and respects its corporate social responsibility ensuring that our quest for sustainable solutions continues to grow and evolve. As a 4 Green Key ECOmmodation rated property from the Hotel Association of Canada, this initiative represents our ongoing efforts to improve our environmental performance,” says Ron Pellerine, General Manager, Delta Chelsea Hotel.

The (EV) charging station is the world’s first UL listed electric vehicle charging station and provides the fastest charge times and highest power rating. It uses a universal adapter allowing a variety of electric vehicles such as cars, buses, trucks and bikes for maximum compatibility.
