Electric vehicle (EV) charging systems provider and network operator Flo announced that it has secured a new round of financing that will be used to continue the company’s growth in Canada and the United States.

The $136 million in long-term capital, principally from a Series E equity financing, led by Export Development Canada (EDC), also help advance the rollout of Flo’s newest products, the NEVI and Buy America-compliant Flo Ultra fast charger and the next generation of Flo Home residential chargers.

It will also help fund additional new charging solutions and the network expansion of Flo owned-and-operated stations at high-utilization sites with Flo's strategic partners.

"This financing will help Flo continue our work to deploy reliable, critically needed EV charging infrastructure across North America," says Louis Tremblay, Flo president and CEO. "I am grateful to our financing partners who believe in Flo and our mission to help overcome climate change by engineering and operating the most reliable EV charging network and by delivering the best possible experience for EV drivers."
