Inauguration of the new public charging stations for electrical vehicles

The Electric Circuit is pleased to announce that today, the Town of Rosemère is inaugurating two public charging stations for electric vehicles. Installed in the parking lots of the Town Hall at 100 Charbonneau Street and the municipal library at 339 Grande-Côte Road, they are now accessible to drivers of rechargeable electric vehicles. 

"This new service is a logical extension of the Town of Rosemère’s distinctive and innovative approach to environmental issues and sustainable development, as recognized by the national and international awards the Town has earned, and as reflected in our initiatives to stop the idling of engines and support active transportation. We extend out heartfelt thanks to the Electric Circuit for supporting our efforts to reduce our collective ecological footprint,” stated Mayor Madeleine Leduc. 

"We are so pleased that a municipality like Rosemère can now offer owners of electric vehicles access to charging services,” said Pierre-Luc Desgagné, Vice-President – Public and Government Affairs with Hydro-Québec.  "With the addition of these two new charging stations, the Electric Circuit takes yet another step in its expansion in the Laurentian region and pursues its objective to support all drivers who choose to go electric.” 

The Electric Circuit
The Electric Circuit is the largest network of public charging stations in Québec. It remains a major initiative in the deployment of the charging infrastructure needed to support the arrival of rechargeable electric vehicles in Québec.
 

The network consists of a 400-volt quick-charge station and close to 300 240-volt charging stations in service, notably in the parking lots of the ATM and several RONA stores, Metro supermarkets and St-Hubert Rotisseries in Québec. Since it was first inaugurated in March 2012, 72 private and institutional partners have joined the Electric Circuit. The network continues to expand, providing wider geographic coverage and serving a larger number of electric vehicle drivers in several Québec regions. 

Users of the Electric Circuit benefit from 24/7 telephone assistance, operated and managed by CAA-Québec, as well as a service for locating charging stations. The lecircuitelectrique.comwebsite and the Electric Circuit’s mobile application for iOS and Android are updated as new stations are added to the network.
