Electric vehicle adoption is accelerating



Studies show EVs have increased by more than 60 per cent each year for the past three years in Calgary.

Forecasts indicate that Calgary could see a 10x increase in EVs in 5 years.

ENMAX Charge Up Pilot Program - now full

The Charge Up program is a small-scale electric vehicle charging pilot that will help us understand how Calgarians use EVs, and the potential impact they’ll have on our electricity system.

Under this program, we’re helping offset the cost of EV chargers for a limited number of eligible homes and businesses in Calgary so we can monitor changes in electricity demand. We’re committed to ensuring our network is ready to meet the changing needs of our customers.

Our residential and commercial programs are full. Thank you to everyone for their interest and helping us understand more about electric vehicles and our network.

If you have questions please contact our team at getconnected@enmax.com or 403-514-3716.

A member of our team will be in touch with more details and to answer your questions.
