Quebec’s Electric Circuit confirmed earlier this week that a partnership agreement has been signed with the Société des casinos du Québec to install four public charging stations in Casino’s parking lots.

A first one is already up and running at Casino de Charlevoix, thanks to a partnership with the Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu.

Starting this spring, visitors to the casinos in Montreal and Lac-Leamy will also be able to fill up on clean, renewable energy at a station at each of those locations.

The feasibility of making a plug-in station available at the Casino de Mont-Tremblant will also be examined.

The addition of the Société des Casinos brings the constantly growing number of Electric Circuit partners to 28.

“Installation of these public charging stations in casino parking lots is in line with our sustainability and social commitment initiatives,” said Louise Dostie, Director of Communications and Social Responsibility at the Société des casinos du Québec.

This announcement follows the signature of a partnership agreement end of February with the Cégep de Saint-Hyacinthe to install three public charging stations for electric vehicles in its parking lot as of this summer.

“With the Société des casinos du Québec as a new partner, the Electric Circuit is expanding in the most popular regions of Québec to serve a greater number of EV drivers with a variety of charging needs,” said Pierre-Luc Desgagné, Hydro-Québec’s Senior Director – Strategic Planning, on behalf of the Electric Circuit’s founding partners. “With the Cégep de Saint-Hyacinthe stations, the Electric Circuit increases its service offering in the Montérégie region and along one of Québec’s major roads, Highway 20”
