Co-op Connect EV Chargers Open!
April 19, 2022

There’s now more than one way to fill up at Red River Co-op! We have installed new EV fast-charging stations in Winnipeg.

Dakota Gas Bar 830 Dakota Street, Winnipeg, MB
Bridgwater Gas Bar 50 Centre Street, Winnipeg MB
Charleswood Gas Bar 3425 Roblin Boulevard, Winnipeg, MB
Grandmont Gas Bar 3357 Pembina Highway, Winnipeg, MB

We also have a Tesla charging station at our gas bar in Dryden, Ontario.

Co-ops across Western Canada are working together and leading the charge in connecting the West, installing chargers in towns and cities on the Prairies along the Trans-Canada Highway. These chargers will be located at existing Co-op locations, including food stores and gas bars, and will form the Co-op Connect EV Charging Network.

“Even though gas bars are a large part of our business, we see this as opportunity to both reduce our environmental impact and to seize the moment by investing in the transition to a low-carbon economy,” said Doug Wiebe, CEO of Red River Co-op.

All makes and models of electric vehicles using one of two universal standard connectors will be able to use the Co-op Connect chargers. Most stations will charge a vehicle in about 30 minutes.

The charging stations are simple to use and the Co-op Connect App provides the ability to find charging locations, start and end sessions, track the charging process and pay for charging.
