Visitors going through Strathmore and operating an electric vehicle now have the option of stopping at the Peavey Mart store (300 Edgefield Place) for a free “charge”. This is the only public (and free) charging station in our area.
Peavey Mart is the first retailer in Canada to commit to the installation of electric charging stations at all locations.
Electric car owners in the Prairies are getting a charge from Peavey Mart stores. The retail chain decided to install charging stations at all 29 store locations.
Charging is free for electric car owners and it is expected that most people will charge for an hour or so.
The distance a car can drive on a single charge depends on the battery, the car, and the charging unit.
Electric cars are a movement that the average person can partake in and Peavey Mart is helping provide options for the average person by filling in charging capacity across most of Alberta and Saskatchewan. By assisting Canadians to lower their emissions, it allows Canada to continue to develop its resource sector while lowering emissions is good for all Canadian's and Peavey is trying to do their part.
