Past Recipients




This utility was an early adopter, adding EVs into its fleet as well as hybrid bucket trucks as much as 5 years ago. In 2017, it partnered with Canadian Tire and Flo, a charger network, to install a DC fast charger on Alberta’s busiest highway and with the city of Edmonton to install on street level 2 chargers. In its most ambitious project to date, the Peaks to Prairies network, it created Alberta’s largest EV project for Alberta to date – installing 20 quick chargers as well as level 2 chargers along a corridor in southern Alberta. This project included a comprehensive outreach and educational campaign to go along with the charger installation to help the local communities understand the benefits of this network of chargers, including emissions reductions, tourism, and saving money
