The Electric Circuit announced that partnership agreements have been signed with the municipalities of Chénéville, Thurso and Namur. These agreements, which are the result of an initiative spearheaded by the regional county municipality (MRC) of Papineau, call for the commissioning of three public charging stations on its territory.
The charging stations will be commissioned by spring 2015 on the following sites: parc DoRéMi parking lot, rue D’Youville (Chénéville); salle communautaire parking lot, 535, route 323 (Namur); and Metro grocery store/Caisse Populaire Desjardins parking lot, 325 rue Victoria (Thurso).
“The Papineau MRC is the land of green gold and the stations fully reflect this development vision. Moreover, this is a philosophy that we would also like to apply to our green regional industrial park. We want to promote the use of renewable energies in order to preserve our wealth of resources for future generations”, said Paulette Lalande, prefect of the MRC and Mayor of Plaisance.
“We are very pleased to welcome the first three municipalities of the Papineau MRC to the Electric Circuit”, said France Lampron, Director – Transportation Electrification at Hydro-Québec, speaking on behalf of the founding partners of the Electric Circuit. “By choosing to offer a charging service to their residents and electric vehicle drivers passing through the area, these municipalities will further enhance the Electric Circuit’s offering in the Outaouais region.”
