As part of the Electric Vehicles for Municipalities program the Municipality of Jasper undertook a Feasibility Study to assess the possibility of adding EVs to their fleet, and potential charging locations. The feasibility study was completed by ATCO, and the Town received $5,590 from the Action Centre to help offset a portion of the project cost.

This project was funded by the Government of Alberta.


In line with the Municipality of Jasper’s Strategic Priorities, which underscored the municipality’s ambition to “be a leader in sound environmental practices” by integrating an environmental perspective into its decision-making and operational frameworks and committing to “examine and adjust our services to ensure they delivered the expected environmental benefits,” the Municipality of Jasper engaged ATCO Electric to conduct the 2023 Jasper EV Fleet Feasibility Study. This initiative reflected the municipality’s dedication to environmental stewardship and innovative leadership.


The study’s primary objective was to explore the viability of transitioning the Municipality of Jasper’s vehicle fleet to electric models, including the implementation of the necessary electrical and charging infrastructure. It sought to provide a comprehensive analysis of the financial and environmental implications of such a transition, evaluating both qualitative and quantitative benefits and costs associated with moving to electric vehicles. Upon thorough evaluation, the study presented several key recommendations:

• Transitioned three vehicles to F150 Lightning Standard Range vehicles.

• Upgraded two vehicles to Hyundai Ioniq 5 Preferred Long Range AWD models.

• Switched two vehicles to Ford eTransit vehicles.

• Established four charging stations at the Operations Building.

• Set up one charging station at the Bylaw Office.

“This initiative is more than a step towards modernizing our fleet; it’s a testament to our commitment to environmental leadership and sustainability. By transitioning to electric vehicles, we’re not only reducing our carbon footprint but also setting a standard for municipalities across the nation to follow.”
