Following its promise, the Electric Circuit went on all through last week with one announcement per day during the Montreal Auto Show.
We reported on the first few announcements last week, announcements relating to the expansion of Quebec’s Electric Circuit EV charging network. The first of such had to do with Nissan Canada supporting the expansion of the Electric Circuit public charging network with a significant investment in 25 DC fast charging sites.
While 125 new stations were announced during the first few days, the second half of the announcements have less impact.
Here are the new developments set forward since our last report:
- A new charging station will be commissioned in the MRC du Haut-Richelieu in early February, to be located in the underground parking of the MRC du Haut-Richelieu’s offices at 380, 4e Avenue in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu. There are currently fifteen charging stations in service in the MRC du Haut-Richelieu, for a total of 92 charging stations in service in the Montérégie region;
- The city of Richelieu is installing a charging station in the parking lots of the tourism information office, located on Chemin des Patriotes;
- The Electric Circuit singed an agreement with Industrial Alliance insurance and financial services for the installation of a public charging station for electric vehicles (EV) resulting in a charging station located in the Place Québec parking lot on Boulevard René-Lévesque Est, in Québec City, for a total of 51 charging stations in service in the Capitale-Nationale region;
- In the Mauricie region, the city of Shawinigan joined the Electric Circuit, becoming its 100th partner. The city signed an agreement for the installation of eight Electric Circuit charging stations in the coming months. These charging stations will be in addition to the seven currently in service in the Mauricie region;
- Finaly, Saint-André-d’Argenteuil in the Laurentians, joined the Electric Circuit, for the installation of a public electric-vehicle (EV) charging station. Visitors can now charge their vehicles in the town hall parking lot on Rue de la Mairie.
