MONTREAL—The city of Montreal has announced it will install 80 public charging stations in Montréal, many of which will be on municipal lots.
“Québec has embraced transportation electrification and I would like to congratulate the city of Montréal and the Electric Circuit for the tangible efforts they have made in this regard,” stated Québec Premier Pauline Marois. “We are fortunate to be able to rely on a clean, renewable source of energy as well as superior expertise when it comes to implementing the public charging infrastructure required to support the arrival of electric vehicles on our roads. This forward-looking project will benefit the entire population.”
The 80 charging stations are designed and manufactured in Québec by AddÉnergie Technologies, and will bring the total number of charging stations to 250.
The 240-V charging stations will be installed in parking lots belonging to the city and selected to ensure visibility and security. All income derived from the use of the charging stations purchased by the city of Montréal will belong exclusively to the city.
The plan is carried out by The Electric Circuit, the largest public charging network in Québec with 200 charging stations in service in parking lots of the AMT, as well as RONA stores, Metro grocery stores and St-Hubert restaurants throughout Québec.
