EVAA was proud to be a part of the official launch of the Peaks to Prairies EV charging corridor project today in Lethbridge. Over 100 dignitaries and interested parties gathered at Lethbridge College.
Various communities in southern Alberta have committed over $2,000,000 to ensure over 1600km2 of the region becomes accessible to electric vehicles via 20 DCFC L3 and 20 L2 chargers installed and operated by ATCO – all of which will be powered with renewable
energy. The charging stations will run on the FLO network and are expected to be operational
by the end of 2019.
On the back of the latest announcement by ATCO to build the Peaks to Prairies EV charging
corridor in Alberta, the EVAA is excited to team up with ATCO and the Telsa Owners Club of
Alberta (TOCA) to spread the word to Albertans on the benefits of electric vehicle adoption and
the increasing charging options that drivers will have when on the road. Visit Charging Ahead to

How about an update on this project? Last summer we were in Lethbridge and could only find one L3 charger, an ATCO, and it wasn’t working!
It is never fun when a charger is malfunctioning. We know ATCO/Flo are continuously making adjustments to address issues that could take a station offline. We are not aware of additional L3 chargers in Lethbridge unfortunately.
Is there plans for EV Chargers along highway 93 and highway 11? Just planning summer trips and noticed it would be beyond the max range on the Iconiq 5.
There are always plans for chargers, but we cannot speak to those plans publicly unfortunately. HWY93 – are you aware of this charger? https://www.plugshare.com/location/205149
HWY11 – https://www.plugshare.com/location/185354 and https://www.plugshare.com/location/80269.
