The Town of Edson is hoping to spearhead a network of electric vehicle charging stations that would connect electric vehicles users to our region and beyond. Council has been presented with information regarding a proposed Northwest Electric Vehicle Charging Network and general support has been given to start moving forward with the project.
At this stage, Council is submitting letters to gauge support and seek seed funding for the project from other municipalities in the area.
It’s hoped that a regional approach, as has been proved successful in other areas, will help ease the burden on individual communities, help build strong relationships, increase regional tourism, and create new economic opportunities.
