As part of the Low Emissions Community Plan (LEC Plan), City of Saskatoon's Roadways, Fleet & Support department is piloting four battery electric Chevy Bolts to be used by Saskatoon Light & Power, Facilities Management and Parking Enforcement.
Data will be collected to determine greenhouse gas emissions reduction levels, lifecycle operational & maintenance costs, and verify that the vehicles are just as functional as fuel powered vehicles to meet required service levels. Saskatoon Light & Power will also study the charging requirements of the vehicles which will help form planning for future electrical infrastructure needs as electric vehicle adoption continues to increase.
Be sure to keep a look out for our new electric vehicles on the road as we create our future community, one vehicle at a time!
