October 16, 2012 – The Société des établissements de plein air du Québec (SÉPAQ) announced it is joining The Electric Circuit, a partnership involving the Agence métropolitaine de transport (AMT), Hydro-Quebec, Metro, Rona and the Rôtisseries St-Hubert, whose goal is to deploy a network of public charging stations for electric vehicles (EVs) in Quebec.

SÉPAQ intends to install seven charging stations for its clientele: two at the Parc de la Chute-Montmorency, one at the Aquarium du Québec, another at the Station touristique Duchesnay, and one each at the Mont-Saint-Bruno, Îles-de-Boucherville and Oka national parks. The cost to recharge an EV has been set at $2.50, regardless of the time it takes.
