At the heart of the historic and culturally significant Metis Crossing, situated on the banks of the North Saskatchewan River, lies a commitment to preserving the rich heritage of the Metis People of Alberta.

Recently, Metis Crossing teamed up with EVlution, an EV charging station installation company, to enhance the guest experience and take a step toward sustainability.

In this blog post, we explore the journey of this collaboration, emphasizing the seamless integration of EV charging stations into the infrastructure without losing sight of the site’s cultural importance and the overall experience of Metis Crossing with EVlution.

About Metis Crossing

Metis Crossing serves as a cultural destination, offering visitors a glimpse into the history and traditions of the Metis people. Recognized for its historical significance, the site attracts numerous guests seeking a deeper connection with the Metis culture.

Incorporating EV Charging Stations

Responding to the evolving needs of their guests, Metis Crossing felt the need to introduce EV charging stations to their infrastructure. Therefore, the company chose EVlution to add two Level 2 EV Chargers at The Lodge.

These chargers not only offer a convenient service for electric vehicle users but also align with the site’s commitment to enhancing guest experiences.

Metis Crossing is strongly committed to sustainability and environmental stewardship, and they view the role of EVs and EV charging stations as crucial in combatting climate change.

The organization’s main goal is to get away from fossil fuels. They are trying to achieve this goal with the implementation of solar panels on their buildings. They have recently completed a 4.86 Megawatt solar farm, which powers their site and reduces their carbon footprint.
