Saskatchewan isn’t exactly known as a hotbed for EV adoption. But their popularity is rising quickly, and the provincial electric utility in the province is wanting to plan for an electric future.
SaskPower, with help from the Saskatchewan Electric Vehicle Association (SEVA) and SaskEV, are conducting an online survey, the results of which will help guide their decisions around charging infrastructure. According to SaskPower, there are only about 50 public EV charging stations currently available across the province.
The results will also be used to help plan the expansion of its grid to cope with the expected growth in popularity of EVs in Saskatchewan.

According to the latest date from Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI), there were just 28 EVs in the province in 2015. Today, that number has risen to over 300.
EV owners in Saskatchewan can take the survey online here, which closes at the end of the day on August 4, 2020. It should take 5-10 minutes to complete, and covers topics like where and when you charge your cars, and the availability of public charging stations.
