Daymak teams up with the Sustainable Energy Initiative to provide electric ridesharing at York University.
There has been a lot of talk about climate change as the world leaders met recently in Paris to discuss long term solutions. Locally, organizations have been doing there part in reducing carbon emissions in their communities. On December 11th the initiative was formally inaugurated by the Honourable Steven Del Duca, Ontario’s Minister of Transport.
Daymak Inc. has teamed up with The Sustainable Energy Initiative (SEI) out of York University’s Environmental Studies faculty to provide electric solar panel charging station for everyone to use. The SEI developed a solar panel charging station used to charge electric cars, scooters, motorcycles and more. It has an output of 7kW and has built in batteries to store power to ensure reliability even at night.
“The Ontario government is supportive of green, clean, innovative technology that will transform the way we live, move, work and adapt to our environment,” said Del Duca.
Present with the minister was our very own Chief Technology Officer Aldo Baiocchi who had this to say about the project: “It’s great to see a tangible impact in support of green technology right in our own backyard”
Daymak has provided the SEI with two electric scooters to be used as part of the unveiling. Daymak, a light electric vehicle company based out of Canada, has donated them a Daymak Beast, which also has built in solar panels for quick charging on the go and is off-road ready, as well as a Daymak Daytona, an electric scooter that can go up to 60 km on a single charge with a built in mp3 player. These electric scooters require no license, and can go up to 32 km/h.
