Ivy Charging Network launches first complete electric vehicle charging solution for home and on the go

Ivy Home™ offers a made-in-Ontario, built-for-Ontario product

TORONTO, February 16, 2023 — It just got easier to go electric with the launch of Ivy Home™, Ontario’s first complete EV charging solution. Ivy Charging Network, one of Ontario’s largest and most connected electric vehicle (EV) charging networks, is now offering a home charger with professional installation, a 3-year warranty, 24/7 member support, and access to Ivy’s public charging network.

“With nearly 90 per cent of EV charging happening at home, we are simplifying home charging with a one-stop solution. Customers pick their charger, monthly plan and we’ll take care of the rest,” said Michael Kitchen, General Manager, Ivy Charging Network. “At Ivy, we’re committed to helping customers make the switch to an electric vehicle by providing simple, intuitive, and reliable charging solutions.”

Currently, transportation is responsible for about a third of Ontario’s greenhouse gas emissions. Mobilizing Ontario’s clean electricity system to power transportation is key to the province’s net zero future.

The company received support, thanks to a funding investment of $922,934 from Natural Resources Canada’s Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Demonstration Program.

“We’re making electric vehicles more affordable and charging more accessible where Canadians live, work and play,” said the Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Natural Resources. “Investing in more EV chargers will put more Canadians in the driver’s seat on the road to a net-zero future and help achieve our climate goals.”
