Hydro Québec Transportation Electrification
Revolutionizing the transportation of tomorrow
Hydro-Québec’s power and know-how are revolutionizing the transportation industry. By developing innovative battery and motor technologies for electric vehicles, setting up a network of public charging stations and producing clean, renewable power, Hydro-Québec is actively involved in the electrification of transportation.
Owners of electric vehicles not only save money, but also contribute to reducing oil imports. In Hydro-Québec’s view, promoting electric transportation supports decarbonization efforts in Québec.
Canada’s first public charging network
The Electric Circuit is Canada’s first public charging network for electric vehicles. It offers both 240-volt and 400-volt charging stations throughout Québec and in northeastern Ontario.
Since its launch in March 2012, the Electric Circuit has rapidly expanded to many regions of Québec, and continues to expand into new urban areas. There are now close to 1,500 stations, including over 100 fast charging stations in the network.
While EV owners do most of their charging at home and at work, drivers can travel worry-free, knowing they can top up their batteries on the road if they need to.
