A fourth fast-charge station in Lac-Saint-JeanThe Crevier service station in Sainte-Jeanne-d’Arc welcomes electric vehicle drivers!
The Electric Circuit and Crevier Group are pleased to announce the activation of a new fast-charge station in Lac-Saint-Jean. In operation for a few months already, the charging station is located on Route 169 at the Sainte-Jeanne-d’Arc Crevier service station, operated by a local retailer-owner Michel Chiasson. This new device ensures quick refuelling for owners of electric vehicles who come through the north part of the lake.
“Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean has always been part of Crevier Group's development strategies, our retailer-owners operate fourteen local service stations, affirms Jean-François Crevier, President of the Group. With the energy transition that's been settling in during the last few years, we're staying attuned to market trends in order to offer drivers multi-fuel stations. Charging points for electric vehicles is a first step in this direction and a response to the demands of clients who've converted to electricity.”
“The addition of this fast-charge station, in Sainte-Jeanne-d’Arc, represents a strategic site for the Electric Circuit and for drivers of electric vehicles who will, as of now, have a rapid charging site north of Lac-Saint-Jean. This station is part of 1 600 fast-charge stations that we count on deploying in the area, and everywhere in Québec, over the next ten years, to ensure a network of reliable stations to those who choose electricity to propel themselves,” highlights France Lampron, Director of Transportation Electrification at Hydro-Québec.
Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean has 39 charging stations for electric vehicles, with 4 fast-charge stations around the lake, specifically in St-Félicien, Lac-Bouchette, Roberval and Sainte-Jeanne-d’Arc.
