GM funding adds $6,000 per dual port L2 charging station to a maximum of five (5) dual port charging stations per project site.

The chargers must be FLO CoRe+ MAX 19.2kW 80A level 2 stations, with Ultium and dealer branding in a dual side by side pedestal configuration. They must be connected or have the ability to communicate with other stations or a server/cloud using cellular/wireless signal or connected vehicle communications.
Site hosts are responsible for covering all project costs upfront, however eligible expenses will be reimbursed through funding by NRCan, GM, and participating dealerships. Upon completion of projects, site hosts must submit all project completion documents, such as paid invoices, proof of ownership or access to install sites, “before and after” photos, etc. for assessment.
