The Revelstoke Railway Museum, home to the history of the iconic Canadian Pacific Railway, steps into Canada’s electric future becoming host to Electrify Canada’s tenth electric vehicle ultra-fast charging station in British Columbia.
With a mission of boosting EV adoption and strengthening range confidence, this new station completes the Electrify Canada route from Calgary to Abbotsford along the Trans-Canada highway and Coquihalla. This station opening is the latest development for Electrify Canada’s expansion, which includes a plan to build more than 100 charging stations with over 500 individual chargers across nine provinces by 2026.
“Providing Revelstoke residents and tourists with a fast, convenient and reliable EV charging solution is part of our commitment to the development of Canada’s all-electric future,” states Robert Barrosa, Senior Director of Sales, Business Development and Marketing, Electrify Canada. “We are pleased to deliver this futureproof charging infrastructure in a location with such robust transportation history. This milestone is a symbol of our investment into the future of mobility.”
Minutes away from downtown Revelstoke, the Revelstoke Railway Museum is now equipped with four Electrify Canada ultra-fast chargers – located in the northwest corner of the parking lot, parallel to Farrell Road. The new chargers can provide some of the fastest charging speeds available today for capable vehicles – up to 150kW and 350kW. To create a more comfortable charging experience, Electrify Canada stations are also equipped with an overhead canopy, providing shelter and light, particularly beneficial when charging at night or during the snowy winter.
Situated in the Selkirk Mountains of Western Canada, Revelstoke has deep and rich historical roots in the evolution of transportation. As an important landmark on the Columbia River system, a major divisional point on the Canadian Pacific Railway and as a Canadian travel destination for over 120 years, Revelstoke has always been an important transportation hub.
“While we continue to tell the story of the Canadian Pacific Railway, we are proud to play a part in history, building towards a more sustainable future,” explains Roger Eddy, President of the Revelstoke Heritage Railway Society. “We are excited to welcome local EV drivers and visitors to our museum and provide them with a fast and convenient EV charging experience.”
Customers can rely on Electrify Canada’s 24-hour Customer Contact Center for support and can manage their charging session with the user-friendly Electrify Canada mobile app (available on the App Store and Google Play) enabling contactless payment and session tracking on their smart phone.
