Electric Vehicle Charging Station Installed on Campus

We're pleased to announce the installation of an electric vehicle charging station on The King's University campus thanks to the fundraising efforts of our students. The new charging station is free and open to the general public.

Electric vehicles have become mainstream in Canadian society as people look for green and energy-efficient alternatives for transportation.  In Canada, over 20,000 electric vehicles have been sold and it is now possible to drive across Canada thanks to a growing list of electric charging stations.  The new station at King’s contributes to these efforts as it is the first public location on the east side of Edmonton. 

In early 2016, Kent Rathwell from Sun Country Highway challenged students to make personal choices in their purchases that aligned with their words on caring for the environment.  He touted electric vehicles as one simple option. Not only do electric vehicles make sense financially but they have substantially lower GHG emissions compared to gas cars. Students took up Kent’s challenge and raised funds to install the charging station in order to make green choices more appealing. A level II EV60 charger from Sun Country Highway is installed.
