The Electric Circuit to Add 100 Fast Charging Stations Across Quebec in 2019

EIN 24 CS Fast Charging 400

June 5, 2019

The Electric Circuit will be deploying fast-charging stations more quickly starting this year with the rollout of approximately 100 new fast-charging stations across Quebec. Over the next 10 years, 1,600 new fast-charging stations will be deployed.

The Electric Circuit is Hydro-Québec’s public charging network and Canada’s first public charging network for EVs. It offers both 240-volt and 400-volt charging stations throughout Québec and in Eastern Ontario. It has rapidly expanded to many regions of Québec and continues to expand into new urban areas. There are now close to 2,000 stations.

The Act to promote the establishment of a public fast-charging service for electric vehicles was passed in June of last year. This new legislation authorizes Hydro-Québec to use revenue from the increase in electricity sales generated by charges carried out primarily at electric vehicle drivers’ homes to fund the installation of more fast-charge stations. Electricity rates will therefore not be affected. 

By developing innovative battery and motor technologies for EVs, setting up a network of public charging stations and producing clean, renewable power, Hydro-Québec is actively involved in the electrification of transportation. In Hydro-Québec’s view, promoting electric transportation supports decarbonization efforts in Québec.
