reat news for EV drivers living in the Calgary area: the city’s first universal fast charging station is now operational and ready to be used at the Canadian Tire Gas+ charging site located at 9940 Macleod Trail SE.
The site is equipped with a universal fast charging station offering both CHAdeMO and SAE Combo connectors as well as two Level 2 charging stations.
This is the first of three charging sites that will be deployed in collaboration with ATCO, Canadian Tire and Natural Resources Canada. These will ultimately form a fast charging corridor that will ease electric vehicle travels in Alberta by providing EV drivers with convenient fast charging stops every 150 km or so along the fastest route from Edmonton to Calgary, the province’s two largest cities.
The remaining two corridor sites—Sherwood Park and Red Deer—are expected to be completed in the coming months.
Meanwhile, EV drivers can always rely on the fast charging station located at the Londonderry Mall’s Simons store in Edmonton to top up when visiting the area.
