As part of the MCCAC’s Electric Vehicle Charging Program (EVCP), Sturgeon County purchased and installed three level 2 EV charging stations for public use (6 plugs total). Two of the chargers are located at the Sturgeon County Centre in Morinville, and the other charger is located at Cardiff Park. The County received a combined rebate of $56,716.20 from the MCCAC for the three chargers at the two locations.
This project was funded by the Government of Alberta and Natural Resources Canada.
Sturgeon County identified the County Centre and Cardiff Park as suitable sites to install the level 2 chargers and support EV drivers in the area, and those passing through. The chargers are the first publicly available EV charging stations in Morinville and Sturgeon County.
The three new level 2 chargers will provide reliable charging for visitors in Morinville and Cardiff Park. The dual plug chargers are part of the FLO EV charging network, a Canadian based company headquartered in Quebec. The level 2 chargers are capable of out putting 6.3 kW of power and will be able to charge an average EV from near empty to 100% in 8-10 hours. These chargers will be great for EV drivers who will be in Morinville or Cardiff Park for a few hours and are looking for a top up.
The chargers at the County Centre will be available 24/7, while the charger at the park will be available during park hours, 5AM-11PM. All three chargers have a rate of $2 per hour of use.
This is an exciting network for the County to join. These locations are now part of a growing grid of EV charging stations. The chargers are essential to supporting EV drivers as they connect to rural and northern locations.Sturgeon County Mayor Alanna Hnatiw
