On June 8, ATCO Elec­tric in­tro­duced a new elec­tric car charg­ing sta­tion in the town park­ing lot be­hind CIBC for more tourist at­trac­tions to the val­ley.

Af­ter lots of co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the Town of Drumheller, and Sun Coun­try High­way, ATCO chose Drumheller to show­case the new ac­ces­si­bil­ity for elec­tric cars.

“Well it’s a busy, touristy com­mu­nity,” said Terry Tonsi, ATCO District Man­ager. “We felt the op­por­tu­nity that peo­ple would use this charg­ing sta­tion was a high po­ten­tial and this tech­nol­ogy is so new, we have to get it out and make sure peo­ple use it.”

There are cur­rently two charg­ing sta­tions lo­cated at the town park­ing lot and the Bad­lands Com­mu­nity Fa­cil­ity (BCF).

Sun Coun­try High­way de­signs and builds the in­di­vid­ual sta­tions which is now con­sid- ered the fastest elec­tric ve­hi­cle charg­ing net­work in the world.

The com­pany was able to at­tend the event in style, sport- ing its model.

As more ac­cess the lux­ury Tesla elec­tric users con­tinue to charg­ers, ATCO will adapt and an­a­lyze the data col­lected from the ma­chines.

“We are try­ing to un­der­stand it at this time but Drum- friends. The day ended with a lively dance and a late even­ing buf­fet. It was a great day and the beau­ti­ful bride and debonair groom looked stun­ning and ever so happy!

The Rees’s lot in Craigmyle looked a bit like an RV park, as a num­ber of friends had pro­vided their units as ac­com­mo­da­tion for out of area fam­ily. Bev com­pe­tently fed at least 40 peo­ple the even­ing be­fore the wed­ding.

Once again, I need to thank all the fine peo­ple who have given their best wishes and prayers for the re­cov­ery of our son. Corey has im­proved enough that he was re­leased from the Cal­gary Hos­pi­tal. He and Kelly, his wife and care­giv- heller is a per­fect spot due to the tourism and high vol­ume of traf­fic,” said Tonsi.

Over­all, ATCO is proud to ex­plore and ex­pand into this new age of elec­tric ve­hi­cles, hop­ing to be­come an in­dus­try leader.

It’s very ex­cit­ing tech­nol­ogy. To see elec­tric ve­hi­cles drive down the road and have zero emis­sions and you know it’s pro­tect­ing the en­vi­ron­ment and it’s green, it’s very, very ex­cit­ing.”

“It’s very ex­cit­ing tech­nol­ogy,” said Tonsi “To see elec­tric ve­hi­cles drive down the road and have zero emis­sions and you know it’s pro­tect­ing the en­vi­ron­ment and it’s green, it’s very, very ex­cit­ing.”

“My­self and the or­ga­ni­za­tion is tick­led pink that we’re do­ing this.” er, chose to bring their trailer to the farm for a spell, where he can con­tinue to re­cover in the quiet of “Mother Na­ture.” Re­cov­ery will take a very long time, but we are mov­ing in the right di­rec­tion. Even the med­i­cal peo­ple at the Foothills Hos­pi­tal are amazed by his progress up to this point.

Birth­day Greetings go out to Lynn Brinkman on June 16; Justin and Spencer Ir­win on June 17; Gail Olmstead on June 18; Jim Hunter on June 19 and Mar­lene Ban­nis­ter on June 20. Happy An­niver­sary to Reg and Kathy Rew on June 17 and to Barry and Mar­lene Ban­nis­ter on June 19. May all of you have a great day!

District Man­ager Terry Tonsi and Cus­tomer Ser­vice Su­per­vi­sor Sylvia Adams stand to­gether to demon­strate the sim­plic­ity of the elec­tric car charger that has now been in­stalled in the town park­ing lot in Down­town Drumheller on June 8.
