As part of the MCCAC’s Electric Vehicle Charging Program (EVCP), the Town of Picture Butte installed electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at the following facility for public use. These are the first EV charging stations to be installed in the town.
- One Flo SmartDC – 100 kW level 3 station with two plugs at Cor Van Raay and Community Aquatic Centre
- One Flo CoRE+ – 7.2 kW level 2 station with one plug at Cor Van Raay and Community Aquatic Centre
The project was completed in November 2023.
These charging stations will be a positive impact as it will assist the municipality to transition to electric vehicles and equipment in the future. They will also have a positive impact on the community as they will service people with electric cars who can then spend time in the town and support their local businesses. The EV charger project would reinforce the community’s commitment to renewables and greenhouse gas reductions.
Picture Butte is a town in southern Alberta, Canada. It is located 27 km north of the city of Lethbridge and claims the title of “Livestock Feeding Capital of Canada”.
The town is happy, excited and honoured to have these electric chargers in town. We hope that it attracts electric vehicle owners to our town, and we hope they visit our thriving businesses. We are thankful to the Government of Alberta and the Government of Canada for providing the funds through MCCAC so that we can add this service for people that come to Picture Butte.Mayor Cathy Moore
