PEAKS TO PRAIRIES ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING STATION
Construction of Peaks to Prairies concluded in 2020, enabling growth of the electric vehicle charging infrastructure in southern Alberta. The Project is an innovative regional approach that was initiated in 2016 by a collaborative group of partners including - The City of Calgary, SouthGrow Regional Initiative, Alberta SouthWest Regional Alliance, City of Lethbridge, City of Medicine Hat and Medicine Hat College.
ATCO owns, operates and maintains all twenty Electric Vehicle fast charging stations along the Peaks to Prairies network. We welcome you to visit one of the growing list of locations, listed below and try a Level 2 or Level 3 fast charger with your electric vehicle today.

The Partners recognized an opportunity to accelerate electric vehicle tourism in the region with an approach that would see positive benefits to communities through economic development and emission reductions. Further, the commitment to power the network of stations with local, renewable energy, highlights the resources that exist in the region.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
- With seed funding from the Partners, Peaks to Prairies was additionally funded by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities and the Government of Alberta.
- The $2 Million project saw 20 Direct Current Fast Chargers (DCFC) and Level 2 stations installed throughout the region.
- Long term ownership and operation of the charging infrastructure is carried out by ATCO.
- Each station is powered by ATCOenergy using renewable energy sourced from southern Alberta.
- The stations operate on the FLO network.
