Leading the Charge with Electric Vehicles

  • Alberta EV Corridor

    Alberta has the fourth largest fleet of electric vehicles (EVs) in Canada behind Quebec, Ontario and British Columbia. The availability of reliable charging infrastructure is a key factor in electric vehicle adoption. Although the EV market in Alberta is still relatively small, it is expected to grow in the coming years, which is in line with global trends.

    Alberta’s first Electric Vehicle Universal Fast Charge Corridor 

    Alberta has the fourth largest fleet of electric vehicles (EVs) in Canada behind Quebec, Ontario and British Columbia.  

    The availability of reliable charging infrastructure is a key factor in electric vehicle adoption. Although the EV market in Alberta is still relatively small, it is expected to grow in the coming years, which is in line with global trends. The development of a charging network is a strong catalyst for electric mobility, making short- and long-distance travel easier, while reducing range anxiety – the fear of running out of charge.  

    That’s why ATCO has partnered with FLO to bring the first Electric Vehicle Universal Fast Charge corridor to Alberta. This collaborative initiative is made possible by a partnership with Canadian Tire Corporation and Natural Resources Canada.  

    Chargers have been installed at Canadian Tire Gas+ locations in Calgary, Red Deer and in greater Edmonton. All three stations are conveniently located close to Highway 2 exits and near amenities like rest areas, shops and restaurants. All three stations are now operational. 

    • Greater Edmonton: 169 Ordze Avenue, Sherwood Park, AB, T8A 2G4, Canada 
    • Red Deer: 5908 Gaetz Avenue, Red Deer, AB, T4N 4C3, Canada 
    • Calgary: 9940 Macleod Trail SE, Calgary, AB, T2J 3K9, Canada 

    Each location is powered by ATCOenergy and equipped with a Level 3 fast-charging station and a dual Level 2 charging stations to accommodate all types of electric vehicles.  

    “Our energy landscape is changing, which is why we are investing in infrastructure that empowers our customers to take full advantage of these exciting emerging technologies,” said Wayne Stensby, Managing Director, Electricity for ATCO. “Not only did our people lend their local expertise in connecting these cutting edge charging stations to the grid, but ATCO’s retail energy business is providing the cost-effective, reliable electricity needed to give our customers peace of mind as they commute between Alberta’s three largest cities.”
