Community Energy Association reports

Jen Grebeldinger of the Community Energy Association gives an update on the Peaks to Prairies Initiative at the 2019 SouthGrow Annual General Meeting.

During the SouthGrow Annual General Meeting on June 13, Jen Grebeldinger of the Community Energy Association provided an update on the Peaks to Prairies Project

Grebeldinger said that throughout the summer, charging stations will be deployed and signs will be installed at each station to highlight not only the project, but also what the communities hosting the stations have to offer. This move, Grebeldinger said, will give electric vehicle users previews of many different communities as they charge their vehicles.

“It’s going to provide opportunities for people to learn things about these communities that's going to make them want to come back,” Grebeldinger said. “The signage is  going to make you want to actually stay the night in various communities and participate in events that different communities hold.”

Grebeldinger said that the Community Energy Association is also going to be producing some videos that showcase travel and the tourism opportunities throughout Southern Alberta. Part of that showcase, Grebeldinger said, will involve taking electric vehicles to communities and allowing people to get to know about the vehicles by test driving them, but the electric vehicle showcase is still in the planning stages.

In conclusion, Grebeldinger played a short video to highlight the electric vehicle project and how it will have a positive impact on tourism in Alberta.
