LED Lighting Project
As part of the Township Energy Management Plan, converting all traditional street lights to LED is our first significant project that will help us in meeting our commitments over the coming years.
EV Charging Station now in Lakefield!
Selwyn Township has its first electric vehicle charging station!
Residents can now charge their electric cars while taking a tour of downtown Lakefield and all of its amenities. The electric vehicle charging station is located in the municipal parking lot beside The Village Inn of Lakefield.
How to Use the FLO Network
How users can start a charge:
There are three methods to initiating a charge at the units:
- Using the FLO Network App (can be downloaded for free from the Google Play or App Store)
- Using a FLO Network card (users must order the cards in the mail ahead of time for a cost of $15)
- Calling the toll-free number, 1-844-825-3356, found on all units. This number connects to a 24/7 line serviced by CAA.
These are the only three ways to start a session. We recommend users to download and install the app. This app will allow them to start and end their charging sessions for free, as well as locate plugs anywhere in North America. If users plan on travelling outside the Peterborough area on a regular basis, then we recommend getting a Flo card and adding funds to it with their credit, as most chargers are not free. Lastly if the network should be down or in the case of an emergency, users can always call the toll-free number located on each unit for CAA assistance.
All charging stations are also listed on several charging station map databases. Every EV comes with its own charging station finding app plus the following open networks including:
