Twenty new EV charging stations open in Calgary

Electric vehicle (EV) owners in the City of Calgary now have more places to plug in and charge their cars.

The city announced today that 20 new level 2 EV charging stations are now operational at various recreation facilities and CTrain Station Park and Ride sites.

The project was a collaboration with the Natural Resources Canada, which provided $100,000, and ENMAC Power, which contributed $120,000.

The total project cost came in at $264,000, with the remaining funds provided by the city.

“I’m excited to see the result of our federal government once again supporting The City of Calgary’s work towards becoming a more climate resilient city,” said George Chahal, Member of Parliament for Calgary Skyview. “Increasing EV affordability is a shared goal, and this is an important milestone in sustainable local infrastructure.”

The charging stations are located at the following Park and Ride lots:
