The Electric Circuit wants to add 4,500 EV charging stations in Quebec by 2028

Quebec already has the highest rate of electric vehicle (EV) adoption in Canada. To support all those EV the province has invested heavily in developing a wide-ranging EV charging network.

To meet future demand, The Electric Circuit, in partnership with Quebec’s municipalities, plans to install 4,500 charging stations by 2028. The initiative is being developed to help those EV owners who don’t have access to a charger at their home.

Hydro-Quebec is offering a grant program to municipalities to provide up to $12,000 per charging station installed. In order to qualify for the funding, stations must meet one of the following needs:

  • Overnight charging in neighborhoods where electric vehicle owners do not have access to private outdoor outlets
  • Daytime charging downtown and near shops

Any curbside stations installed must also be available to the public 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and offer free parking in front of the station from 9:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m.
