MONTREAL, Sept. 24, 2012 /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 signing of a partnership agreement with Aéroports de
"Aéroports de Montréal is proud to be joining The Electric Circuit. Now
that two charging stations are in service in the parking structure at
the Montréal-Trudeau terminal, passengers have every reason to drive
their electric cars to the airport," said ADM's President and CEO,
James C. Cherry.
"We're very pleased to welcome such a prestigious organization as
Aéroports de Montréal to The Electric Circuit," said Hydro-Québec's
Pierre-Luc Desgagné, Senior Director - Strategic Planning, speaking on
behalf of The Electric Circuit's founding partners. "Drivers now have
the option of charging their electric vehicles when they fly out or
even when picking up friends or family at the airport."
The Electric Circuit
The Electric Circuit is a major milestone in the rollout of the charging
infrastructure needed to support the arrival of plug-in electric
vehicles (EVs) in Québec. It is pursuing its expansion throughout
several Québec regions..
Eighty 240-volt Electric Circuit stations are already available in
parking lots of the AMT, as well as those of many RONA hardware stores,
Metro grocery stores and St-Hubert Restaurants in the greater Montréal
and Québec areas. More than 150 charging stations will be available in
Québec by the end of 2012. After that, the roll-out of 240-V and 400-V
charging stations, which allow for quicker charging, will be deployed
as more electric vehicles hit Québec roads.
EV owners do most of their recharging at home and at work, but drivers
can travel worry free, knowing they can top up their batteries on the
road if they need to. Electric Circuit users also have access to a 24/7
telephone help line run by CAA-Québec, as well as a charging station
locator service. Of course, The Electric Circuit Web site, www.theelectriccircuit.com, is updated as new stations are installed or commissioned.
