Plug’n Drive and the Canadian Electricity Association (CEA) have awarded Alectra Utilities with the ‘Tom Mitchell Electric Vehicle Utility Leadership Award’ for its programs: AlectraDrive @Work, AlectraDrive @Home, GridExchange, Advantage Power Pricing and York University Electric Bus Simulation Study. All of these initiatives operate out of Alectra’s Green Energy & Technology Centre (GRE&T Centre).
“We appreciate receiving this award from Plug’n Drive and the CEA,” said Brian Bentz, president and CEO, Alectra Inc. “The work that the GRE&T Centre does is an important part of our effort to help build a clean energy future and embrace new technologies to help our customers.”
The Electric Vehicle Awards, now in their sixth year, recognize Canadian car dealerships and electricity utilities that are leaders in the sale and promotion of electric vehicles. Electricity utilities are recognized based on the merits and impacts of utility led EV programs and initiatives.
Earlier this year, Alectra was named Public Power Utility of the Year by the Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA) and ranked third in Corporate Knights ‘Best 50 Corporate Citizens’.
