The Founding partners of The Electric Circuit and Hydro-Québec are happy to announce the signing of an agreement letter with the Union des municipalités du Québec (UMQ), whereby the UMQ will handle communications and offer front-line services to the more than 300 members with regard to the development and roll-out of The Electric Circuit.

“We have already announced the locations of a number of charging stations in the greater Montréal and Québec areas, and this new partnership will enable us to plan the infrastructure so as to meet our customers’ needs throughout Québec," said Pierre-Luc Desgagné, Senior Director, Strategic Planning at Hydro-Québec, on behalf of the founding partners of The Electric Circuit.

"The UMQ is proud to be associated with this project. We invite municipalities that are interested in implementing public charging stations to join The Electric Circuit. Our citizens will be able to take advantage of the province-wide deployment currently undertaken by Hydro-Québec and its partners. Our annual meeting in May will be the perfect occasion for delegates to learn more about this new infrastructure," said Éric Forest, President of the Union des municipalités du Québec and Mayor of Rimouski.

Municipalities that choose to participate in The Electric Circuit will be able to take advantage of Hydro-Québec’s expertise, as well as tools developed by the founding partners – Les Rôtisseries St-Hubert, RONA, METRO and the Agence métropolitaine de transport. For example, users of The Electric Circuit’s charging stations will have access to a 24-hour telephone help line operated and managed by CAA-Québec. The Electric Circuit Website, theelectriccircuit.com, will also feature a charging station location service sponsored by Hydro-Québec.

Under this agreement, municipalities interested in installing public charging stations on their territory and in learning more about the advantages of The Electric Circuit can now express their interests and particular needs with regard to vehicle charging.

The Electric Circuit
Powered with clean renewable energy, The Electric Circuit’s first 90 240-V charging stations will be available to the public in March, 2012. An additional 30 charging stations will be added by summer, bringing the total to 120. Electric vehicle users will be able to drive worry-free, knowing that a public network of charging stations is available.

Given that the vast majority of recharging needs will be met at home and at work, this public charging network will play an important role in meeting drivers’ backup or emergency needs.

The Electric Circuit is Québec and Canada’s first public charging network for plug-in electric vehicles. This initiative marks a major step in the deployment of the charging infrastructure required to support the arrival of plug-in electric vehicles in Québec and is in line with the 2011-2020 Action Plan for Electric Vehicles announced by the Québec government.
