The Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority is adding electric vehicle charging station at its casinos.

Level three and two electric vehicle charging stations are now offered to SIGA guests at three of their casino locations. The ChargePoint Level three offers 125-kilowatts of electric charging capacity, which adds up to around 200 kilometers of range from a 30-minute charge.

“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.

Earlier this year SIGA received approval of Phase one funding from SaskPower and Natural resources Canada for the installation EV charging stations at three casinos, through SaskPower’s Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Program.

The three charging stations can be found at Northern Lights Casino in Prince Albert, Gold Eagle Casino in North Battleford, and Painted Hand Casino in Yorkton.

Phase two will see EV charging stations installed at the remaining SIGA casinos across the province over the next 12 months.
