A public charging station in the municipality of Rigaud

MONTREAL, May 22, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - The founding partners of the Electric Circuit—Les Rôtisseries St-Hubert, RONA, METRO, the Agence métropolitaine de transport (AMT) and Hydro-Québec—are pleased to announce the commissioning of a public charging station in the parking lot of the public library, located at 102, rue Saint-Pierre, in Rigaud.

"The municipality of Rigaud is entering a new era!" said Mayor Hans Gruenwald Jr. "With this public charging station, our community is launching a cutting-edge technological partnership. I am delighted that there are already almost 70 charging stations in Montérégie and I know that the number of service points will continue to increase, especially in high-traffic areas. I am pleased that today Rigaud is part of this wave."

"The Electric Circuit is expanding in part thanks to the willingness of dynamic municipalities like Rigaud that make public charging stations available to their citizens and visitors," said Pierre-Luc Desgagné, Vice President - Public and Government Affairs at Hydro-Québec, on behalf of the founding partners of the Electric Circuit. "This is great news for the region's electric vehicle drivers who now have 68 Electric Circuit charging stations at their disposal in Montérégie to extend their range when needed."

The Electric Circuit

The Electric Circuit is the largest public charging network in Québec, with more than 250 Level 2 (240-V) charging stations and one fast-charge (400-V) station in operation in parking lots of the AMT, RONA stores, Metro grocery stores and St-Hubert restaurants throughout Québec. Since its launch in March 2012, 63 private and institutional partners have joined the Electric Circuit. It will continue to expand in order to offer greater geographical coverage and serve more electric vehicles drivers in many regions of Québec.

Electric Circuit users have access to a 24/7 telephone help line run by CAA-Québec, as well as a charging station locator service. The Electric Circuit Web site, www.theelectriccircuit.com, is updated as new stations are installed or commissioned.
