Town of Canmore

Electric Vehicle Charging Station

Canmore was selected to host an electric vehicle (EV) charging station as part of the Peaks to Prairies Southern Alberta Electric Vehicle Network. The charging station will be located in the parking lot adjacent to Miner’s Hall and be available to the public seeking to charge their electric vehicles. The town has been working with the Peaks to Prairies Southern Alberta Electric Vehicle Network to site an electric vehicle charging station in Canmore. The Peaks to Prairies Network was initiated by three southern Alberta Regional Economic Development Alliances, the City of Calgary and the City of Lethbridge to create a regional electric vehicle charging network for Southern Alberta. 

With this installation, Canmore will have EV charging at four locations in town:

  • ArtsPlace – one Level 2 charger, free to the public
  • Canmore Rocky Mountain Inn – eight Level 3 (DC fast) chargers – Tesla vehicles only
  • Petro Canada – four Level 3 (DC fast) chargers – available to the public for a fee (development permit in progress)
  • Peaks to Prairies station in Miner’s Hall parking lot – one Level 2 charger and one Level 3 (DC fast) charger – available to the public for a fee

Charging Station Levels

  • Level 2: A Level 2 charger is a fast charging station and charges at a rate of 21 - 40 km for an hour of charging
  • Level 3: A Level 3 charger is a very fast charging station and charges 80% of the vehicle’s battery in 30 minutes
