The Electric Circuit, a Hydro-Québec initiative and business model, is Canada’s first public charging network for electric vehicles (EVs). It offers both 240-volt and 400-volt charging stations. The stations are installed in the parking lots of the Circuit’s numerous partners across Québec and in the northeast of Ontario.

Since its launch on March 30, 2012, the Electric Circuit has rapidly expanded to many of Québec’s regions, with continued expansion into new urban areas. Electric Circuit charging stations are rolled out based on the geographical distribution of EV sales, users’
needs and partners’ business strategies.

While most electric vehicle charging takes place at home or at work, the public charging infrastructure allows EV drivers to travel worry-free, knowing they can top up their batteries on the road if necessary.
