There are now 30 fast charging stations on the Electric Circuit public charging network in Quebec. The organization announced this week that the latest one was commissioned in the municipality of L'Ange-Gardien.

"Today's announcement falls perfectly in line with our government's Transportation Electrification Action Plan 2015–2020. It shows that Québec is positioning itself as a world leader in this field and is tackling the challenge of reducing greenhouse gas emissions, the transportation sector being its largest emitter,” said National Assembly member for Papineau and vice-chair of the Committee on Agriculture, Fisheries, Energy and Natural Resources Alexandre Iracà.

The mayor of L'Ange-Gardien, Robert Goulet announced that the municipality is also encourage more people to buy electric vehicles.

"I would also like to announce that the municipality of L'Ange-Gardien has created an incentive program to encourage its citizens to purchase electric vehicles. We now offer $250 to residents of the municipality who own this type of vehicle."

Nissan Canada Inc. has been playing a critical role in the rollout of fast charging stations across the province.

"This expansion will allow electric vehicle drivers easy access to numerous fast-charge stations throughout the province, including this new one in L'Ange-Gardien. We are delighted that zero-emission vehicles like the Nissan LEAF are now even more accessible to Québec consumers who wish to make a difference in how they drive,” said Joni Piva, President of Nissan Canada.
