The City Council of Leduc, Alberta has announced a plan to install electric vehicle (EV) charging stations within the community. Designed to assist drivers between Red Deer and Edmonton, these chargers will also assist more drivers in making the switch to EVs.
Leduc noted no Level 3 superchargers for EV’s between Red Deer and Edmonton. Leduc sits 35 km south of Edmonton.
The City council vote approved the plan to set up these chargers earlier this week. The plan calls for a solar carport, a level 2 charger and a level 3 charger at a city-owned parking lot on the corner of 49 Street and 49 Avenue. Both chargers can charge two cars each.
As per Mayor Bob Young, the plan assists with the long-term plans of Leduc.
“We continue to look for ways to boost Leduc’s economy, support sustainable options… and work toward our greenhouse gas reduction targets,” he said (via Global News).
However, there is no timeline for installation, but many believe it could come as early as the end of 2021.
