Ten New Charging Stations for Electric Vehicles in the Civic Centre
The City of Dollard-des-Ormeaux is proud to unveil the installation of 10 new charging stations for electric vehicles at the Civic Centre, becoming the first Electric Circuit program partner to install 10 charging stations at the same address, demonstrating its engagement to sustainable development.
The City has invested approximately $178,000 in the installation of these charging stations, making them more accessible and encouraging residents and visitors of the Civic Centre to use greener modes of transportation.
The project is part of the Electric Circuit program, "the largest public charging network for electric vehicles in Québec and in Eastern Ontario", with more than 1,900 electric charging stations, saving the earth about 10 million tonnes of CO2 emissions.
Users of these charging stations will be able to use the Electric Circuit's mobile application and their membership card to take advantage of this new service, which will cost them only $1 per hour of use. Should they have an issue, they will benefit from CAA Québec's telephone assistance, available at 24/7.
Mayor Alex Bottausci considers these facilities as one step among many demonstrating the City of Dollard-des-Ormeaux’s commitment to sustainable development. "The installation of charging stations at the Civic Center will contribute to the reduction of our carbon footprint and is part of a larger plan for our City. I am proud of this initiative and the council and I are committed to being proactive in taking steps to protect our environment.”
Six of the 10 electric charging stations are now ready to be used. The City ensures that the rest will be functional by the end of October. They will be found in parking lots P1, P2 and P3 of the Civic Centre.
