The Electric Circuit is pleased to announce the signing of a partnership agreement with Magog's Carrefour Santé Globale (CSG), as well as the commissioning of a 400-V fast-charge station and four 240-V charging stations for electric vehicles. Visitors can now charge their cars in the parking lot of the new shopping center located at 2389, Rue Principale Ouest. The announcement is part of Équittere's Rendez-Vous branchés event being held at CSG.
This is the first public fast-charge station in the Estrie region. This initiative was made possible thanks to the support of Nissan Canada. The fast-charge network is growing rapidly and this new charging station is an additional point of service along the Montréal-Vermont charging corridor.
"We are delighted to offer these new public charging stations. This initiative reflects Carrefour Santé Globale’s commitment to offer an array of services to its customers and ties in with our sustainability strategy," said Gilles Bélanger, General Manager of CSG. "In addition, we are proud to participate in the efforts of the City of Magog to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions."
« We salute the initiative of Carrefour Santé Globale that allows Magog to be the first city in the region to offer a fast-charge station for drivers of all-electric vehicles, in addition to playing a strategic role in the Québec-Vermont charging corridor," said France Lampron, Director – Transportation Electrification at Hydro-Québec on behalf of the founding partners of the Electric Circuit. "We are pleased to have such a dynamic partner contribute to making the Electric Circuit the most extensive public charging network in Québec."
