Electrify Canada has been on a big push this year to expand its network of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations across the country.
Not the company has expanded into Alberta after opening their newest DC fast chargers in the picturesque town of Canmore in the Rocky Mountains.
The new station, located just off Highway 1 at The Shops of Canmore at 300 Old Canmore Road, provides easy access to EV drivers travelling through town, or those visiting for the day.
“The new station in Canmore, in particular, is a great example of what the network has to offer. With the scenic background of the Canadian Rockies, this location right off the Trans-Canada Highway provides drivers with convenient access to charging – whether they are gearing up for a nearby hike, planning to spend an afternoon at The Shops, or simply passing through town on a long distance trip,” said Robert Barrosa, chief operating officer at Electrify Canada.
Electrify Canada offers CCS and CHAdeMO fast charging at the station at speeds of 150kW and 350kW for properly equipped vehicles. The next station planned to open in the Alberta will be in the province’s biggest city, Calgary.
Last month the company announced a simplified pricing structure that will result in lower charging costs. They also recently announced overhead canopies would be added to all their stations, helping to protect EV drivers from the sometimes harsh Canadian climate.
