Peaks to Prairies Electric Vehicle Charging Station
Peaks to Prairies is the electric vehicle charging network coming to southern Alberta in 2019. The Project is an innovative regional approach that was initiated in 2016 by a collaborative group of partners including - The City of Calgary, SouthGrow Regional Initiative, Alberta SouthWest Regional Alliance, City of Lethbridge, City of Medicine Hat and Medicine Hat College.
Nov 21, 2019 Update: ATCO is pleased to announce that we now have ten Electric Vehicle fast charging stations along the Peaks to Prairies Network. We welcome you to visit one of the growing list of locations, listed below and try a Level 2 or Level 3 fast charger with your electric vehicle today.
Electric Vehicle stations energized and operational:
- Canmore: 718 7th Street, Canmore, AB
- Lethbridge: 801 1 Ave South, Lethbridge, AB
- Cardston: 555 Main St, Cardston, AB
- Fort MacLeod: 245 24 St, Fort MacLeod
- Pincher Creek: 750 Kettles St, Pincher Creek, AB
- Nanton: 2114 19 St., Nanton, AB
- Longview: 100 Morrison Road, Longview, AB
- Bearspaw: 100 Nakoda Way, Kananaskis, AB
- Claresholm: 5008 1st Street West, Claresholm, AB
- Vulcan: 115 Centre St East, Vulcan, AB
All 20 charging stations within the Peaks to Prairies network are expected to be operational by the end of 2019.
why is this project happening?
The Partners recognized an opportunity to accelerate electric vehicle tourism in the region with an approach that would see positive benefits to communities through economic development and emission reductions. Further, the commitment to power the network of stations with local, renewable energy, highlights the resources that exist in the region.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
- With seed funding from the Partners, Peaks to Prairies has been additionally funded by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities and the Government of Alberta.
- The $2 Million project will see 20 Direct Current Fast Chargers (DCFC) and Level 2 stations installed throughout the region.
- Long term ownership and operation of the charging infrastructure will be carried out by ATCO.
- Each station will be powered by ATCOenergy using renewable energy sourced from southern Alberta.
- The stations will operate on the FLO network.
WHAT IS ATCO’S ROLE IN THE PROJECT?
ATCO was the successful proponent of a competitive bid process. With experience installing EV charging infrastructure on the Highway 2 Calgary-Edmonton Universal Fast Charge Corridor, ATCO is leading the charge in electrifying transportation in Alberta.
ATCOenergy is proud to play a role in supporting a cleaner future for communities in Alberta. Providing electricity to the EV charging stations is just one of the ways we’re working to bring innovation energy products and solutions to our province.
We are excited to bring our expertise and enthusiasm to this project as we continue to support electric travel to and throughout the region.
