MONTREAL, Dec. 4, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Marché Central, one of the largest power centres in Quebec, is pleased to announce the creation of a dedicated recharging zone for users of electrical vehicles and mopeds. By partnering with VERnetwork™, Marché Central is the first power centre in Quebec to offer this type of service.
"We are very proud to do our part to help develop and expand access to a transportation mode that is powered by renewable energy," explains Raymond St-Jacques, Assistant Manager at Marché Central. "Thanks to this zone, electric vehicle users can be at ease knowing that they can recharge if necessary during a trip. There are currently four stations located in the indoor parking near the Brick and Best Buy stores and Cinémas Guzzo, but this is just the beginning. We will increase our offering to meet demand as the electric vehicle market grows."
Clear vision, firm commitment
This recharging zone is in line with the environmental accountability that Marché Central has adhered to since it took steps to acquire Boma BESt certification in 2008. Since then, it has undertaken important initiatives to change the power centre's practices. And every gesture has an impact: recycling, composting of restaurant table residue, sustainable landscaping management, reduction of heat islands, an intelligent motion-detecting lighting system, green de-icing, participation in the Je ne roule pas? J'éteinds! program, development of partnerships with Éco-quartier, etc.
This commitment makes Marché Central a leader in environmental management among commercial centres in Quebec.
