The Electric Circuit
The Electric Circuit is the largest public charging network in Québec. It is a major initiative in the implementation of the infrastructure required to support the adoption of plug-in electric vehicles in Québec. The network comprises over 630 public charging stations, including 32 fast-charge stations, in operation across 16 Québec regions. Since its launch in March 2012, 141 private and institutional partners have joined the Electric Circuit, and the network now has over 7,800 members.
Electric Circuit users have access to a 24/7 telephone help line run by CAA-Québec, as well as a charging-station locator service. The Electric Circuit Web site, theelectriccircuit.com, and the mobile app for iOS and Android are updated as new stations are commissioned.
