August 14, 2019, Lethbridge AB The Peaks to Prairies Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Network celebrated the opening of Lethbridge’s first Direct Current Fast Charger (DCFC) today. This station, owned and operated by ATCO, is the second station in the network to go online, and is anticipated to make travel to the southern region of Alberta much more feasible for EV drivers.
“There is a momentum in Lethbridge to be a leader in this area – to support electric vehicle travel, and ensure residents and anyone who wants to visit our great city can conveniently do so. With the Peaks to Prairies station, in addition to the four new Level 2 charge stations at the ATB Center, we are excited to support this emerging form of transportation.”
