SaskPower has announced the SaskPower Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Program to help businesses or organizations install approximately 20 electric vehicle (EV) fast charging stations along major Saskatchewan highway corridors.

SaskPower is investing approximately $2 million towards this program, which is scheduled to begin February 25, 2022. 

“Though there are still a relatively small number of EVs on Saskatchewan roads, it’s expected that this market will grow,” said Troy King, acting President and CEO at SaskPower. “It’s important to prepare for a future where more customers drive electric vehicles and expect the infrastructure to be in place to do so.”

Starting this month, SaskPower will begin accepting applications from businesses or organizations who are interested in building fast charging infrastructure. The focus will be along the most travelled highway corridors where EV fast charging stations are lacking such as Highway 11 and Highway 16, as well as some secondary highways that connect major centres in the province.

Interested businesses and organizations are encouraged to contact SaskPower to schedule a pre-application meeting.

Individual businesses or organizations will contribute a portion of the funding towards their charging station and will be responsible for its construction and subsequent operation.
