The charging station in Montmagny is now in operation
During the Québec International Auto Show this past March, the Electric Circuit announced that a public charging station for electric vehicles would soon be available in Montmagny. Today, the city of Montmagny and The Electric Circuit are proud to announce that the charging station is operational and ready to serve its first users. This charging station is located in the parking lot of the municipal library, located at 138, rue St-Jean-Baptiste Est, next to the public market in downtown Montmagny.
“With gas prices fluctuating constantly, it comes as no surprise that electric cars are gaining in popularity and that the number of charging stations is increasing in Québec. It is with the aim of providing better service to car drivers who are passing through our region while doing our bit to preserve the planet that we have decided to join the Electric Circuit. And since the Electric Circuit is a reference for owners of electric vehicles, the charging station we have installed is one more reason for them to stop by Montmagny. Just ahead of the tourism season, the timing is perfect,” said Jean-Guy Desrosiers, Mayor of Montmagny.
“Electric vehicle users can now stop in Montmagny to fill up on clean energy,” said France Lampron, Director – Transportation Electrification at Hydro-Québec, on behalf of the founding partners of the Electric Circuit. “Thanks to its commitment, the city of Montmagny is contributing to expanding the service offering for the growing number of electric vehicles owners.”
