Electric vehicle charging stations at the City of Gatineau’s Maison du citoyen

MONTREAL, Aug. 28, 2013 /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 inauguration of public charging stations for plug-in electric vehicles in the City of Gatineau, the first municipality in the Outaouais to join the extensive public charging system. The parking lot of the Maison du citoyen, located at 25 Laurier Street in Gatineau, is now equipped with two charging stations accessible to all drivers of plug-in vehicles.

“The City of Gatineau is pleased to partner with the Electric Circuit in this project,” noted Gatineau Mayor Marc Bureau. “This initiative reflects the municipal plan of promoting sustainable mobility and reducing greenhouse gases while responding to a growing need. In Gatineau and throughout Québec, there will be more and more electric cars on the road.”

“We are proud to welcome the City of Gatineau to the Electric Circuit and to see that the network is expanding and EV drivers will have access to even more charging stations,” said Pierre-Luc Desgagné, Hydro-Québec’s Vice President – Public and Government Affairs, on behalf of the Electric Circuit partners. We are working actively to reach new partnership agreements to bolster the public charging offer and the Outaouais region certainly presents an interesting development potential.”

About ten Electric Circuit charging stations are already available in the region:

One charging station at the Fairmont Le Château Montebello Hotel, 392 Notre Dame Street, Montebello
Five charging stations at the Plateau des Grives shopping centre, 205-219 Du Plateau Blvd., Gatineau
And five charging stations at the Carrefour du Versant Ouest shopping centre, 1500 Gréber Blvd., Gatineau
