Fast chargers in Ottawa and eastern Ontario : The Electric Circuit announces details
On April 28 2016, Ontario’s Ministry of Transporation announces that In 2017, Ontario will add 493 charging stations for electric vehicles. 14 of them will be fast chargers in Ottawa and in eastern Ontario.
The Electric Circuit is pleased to announce that its proposal to set up a fast-charge corridor between Québec and the Ottawa area has been selected by the Government of Ontario. This project was submitted further to a request for proposals for public and private partners to set up a public charging infrastructure for electric vehicles (EVs) throughout Ontario.
The rollout of this corridor calls for the commissioning of 14 fast-charge stations along Highways 401, 416, 417 and 17 by 2017. An additional eight 240-V (Level-2) charging stations are also planned at strategic locations in Ottawa.
The Electric Circuit, a subsidiary of Hydro-Québec, submitted a joint bid with Metro, St-Hubert restaurants and the City of Ottawa, which will install charging stations on its property. The charging stations will be manufactured by the Electric Circuit’s supplier, Québec-based AddÉnergie.
Even though the map provided by The Electric Circuit is not easy to read the fine prints, we can see where the fast chargers will be located .
