Kent Rathwell

CEO and President, Sun Country Highway

You wouldn’t think that birdseed and EV chargers could naturally go hand in hand, but Kent found a way to make it work. To reach his goal of a zero emissions value chain at Sun Country Farms, Kent installed EV charging stations at his retail locations – but he didn’t stop there. Kent went on to create the Sun Country Highway, the world’s longest green highway. By investing his own net worth and collaborating with others, he was able to donate and install EV chargers along the Trans-Canada Highway, and enabled 100% EVs to travel from sea-to-sea, cash and emission free! Today, thanks to Kent’s efforts, 95% of Canada’s highways are EV accessible and he is now promoting emission-free travel through the Sun Country Highway Annual E-mazing Race.
