As part of the Electric Vehicle Charging Program (EVCP), Cardston County now has three dual plug level 2 electric vehicle charging stations. Two of the chargers (four plugs total) are located at the County shop and will be for municipal fleet use, while the other charger (2 plugs total) is located at the County Administration building and will be for public use.
- Make and Model: JNT – Hypercharge EVC-10
- Charge Level: Level 2
- Power Output: 9.6 kW
- Plug Type: J1772
- Charge Time: 8-10 hours for a full charge
Cardston County received $54,990.54 through the EVCP program to offset the entire cost of the chargers and the installation.
This project was funded by the Government of Alberta and Natural Resources Canada.
Cardston County is located in Southern Alberta and encompasses several communities with over 3,000 square kilometres of land. The new chargers are a valuable addition to the County as they are easily accessible to community members and visitors passing through.
The addition of the three chargers will benefit both County residents who own/are planning to own an EV, and the County itself which can now introduce EVs into their fleet. This project will help reduce the County’s carbon footprint and help them move to a better and more sustainable future.
We are excited to welcome our first (EV) Chargers to Cardston County. We are entering the 21st century with new infrastructure for our residents who already own or want to transition to an electric vehicle. Thank you to the Municipal Climate Change Action Centre for making this a possibility by providing funding programs to rural municipalities, which allow us to have the opportunity to purchase these stations. Together we will help reduce our carbon footprint within Cardston County as we move towards a better and more sustainable future.Cam Francis, Reeve
Cardston County now has three new EV Charging Stations; one is located at the County Administration building that is available to the public, and two at the Shop for Administrative & Municipal use. This could not have happened without the considerable grant funding we received from the Municipal Climate Change Action Centre, and we thank them for this contribution to our community. These stations will help reduce future fuel and maintenance costs to our fleet as we work to conserve, protect, and enhance the environment for our residents – both now and in the future.Murray Millward, Chief Administrative Officer
