The Electric Circuit and the Collège Laval are pleased to announce the signing of a partnership agreement, as well as the commissioning of two new public charging stations for electric vehicles. Visitors can now charge their vehicles using the charging stations located at 1275, Avenue du Collège in Laval.
“In 2014, we were the first school to take part in the BNQ 21000 pilot project launched by various stakeholders from the private, public and socio-economic sectors. Collège Laval is proud to pursue its commitment to sustainable development with the addition of two new Electric Circuit public charging stations in its parking lot. This initiative is in line with our ongoing desire to improve our business practices, educate our community and be a model for other educational institutions,” said Michel Baillargeon, General Manager of Collège Laval.
“We are delighted to welcome Collège Laval, an institution with a long-standing tradition of community involvement and a strong commitment to sustainable development,” said France Lampron, Director – Transportation Electrification at Hydro-Québec on behalf of the founding partners of the Electric Circuit. “With these public charging stations, the college encourages the use of electric vehicles, while contributing to develop the network, which now has 22 public charging stations in Laval.” »
