SASKATCHEWAN — Level 3 (fast charging) and Level 2 electric vehicle (EV) charging stations are now offered for SIGA Casino guests at three locations: Northern Lights Casino in Prince Albert, Gold Eagle Casino in North Battleford and Painted Hand Casino in Yorkton.

“It is important to us to operate in an environmentally sustainable manner and build that into our operational plans going forward, staying true to SIGA’s guiding principle of Witaskêwin, which means living together on the land,” said Director of SIGA Operations Daniel Morin.

The ChargePoint Level 3 charging station provides up to 125 kilowatts of electric charging capacity. This equates to approximately 200 kilometres of range with a 30-minute charge time.

Earlier this year, SIGA’s Operations Department received approval for Phase 1 funding from SaskPower and Natural Resources Canada for the installation of electric vehicle charging stations, at three SIGA Casinos, through SaskPower’s Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Program (EVIP).

Phase 2 will see EV chargers installed at the remainder of SIGA’s seven casinos over the next 12 months.
