STONY PLAIN, AB: In alignment with the Environmental Stewardship Strategy, the Town of Stony Plain has expanded its vehicle fleet with two new fully electric 2023 Kia Niros through the Municipal Climate Change Action Centre’s Electric Vehicles for Municipalities Program. The Municipal Climate Change Action Centre (MCCAC) is a partnership of Alberta Municipalities, the Rural Municipalities of Alberta, and the Government of Alberta. Funding for the Electric Vehicles for Municipalities Program was provided by the Government of Alberta.

Mayor William Choy expresses enthusiasm about this eco-friendly initiative, stating, "We are excited to incorporate our first two fully electric vehicles into our fleet. This move highlights Stony Plain's municipal leadership and dedication to sustainability."

The Town of Stony Plain will receive $14,000 from the MCCAC and a federal rebate of $5000 for each vehicle. This addition marks a significant step towards not only reducing the Town's greenhouse gas emissions and operating costs, but also its commitment to environmental sustainability.

"We have integrated hybrid vehicles into our fleet before, but these are our first fully electric vehicles,” Supervisor of Roads and Infrastructure, Jason Madge comments. “We appreciate the opportunity to participate in the Electric Vehicles for Municipalities Program and to integrate innovative solutions for a greener, cleaner future for Stony Plain."
