The city of Québec City in Québec, Canada, has 40 public charging station ports (Level 2 and Level 3) within 15km. 97% of the ports are level 2 charging ports and 60% of the ports offer free charges for your electric car.
Quebec City has a rich and moving history stirred by times of conquest of the New World on the Plains of Abraham. Since those times, a charging infrastructure has been developed in the neighboring roads and now, Quebec City hosts level 2 charging stations and fast charging stations (DCFC) within 15km, of which are free to the public.
As for electrifying ground transportation in Quebec City, the capital can benefit from Hydro-Québec’s vast energy reserves to provide electricity to electric vehicles.
With a joint focus to promote the use of electric vehicles, Quebec’s premier, Philippe Couillard has signed that there will be 100 000 electric vehicles on Quebec’s roads by 2020. This green turn initiated by the Couillard government is taking shape little by little with different strategies, like the new policy which makes it mandatory for the installation of level 2 charging stations in new homes. This aims to create new buildings that are adapted to electric vehicles.
The city’s rich culture is greatly appreciated, especially taking into account of its proximity to other magnificent regions (Gaspésie, Cap-Tourmente, New-England, Bar Harbor, New York and Boston).
The Dufferin Terrasse of the Chateau Frontenac holds a splendid view of the St. Lawrence River. For rainy days, you can plug in your electric vehicle downtown and visit the Musée de la civilisation du Québec, and the Musée national des Beaux-Arts du Québec.
From there, stroll into the charming lanes of Old Quebec, onto streets filled with public charging stations, small restaurants, vintage shops and bars with live music. During winter, sugar shacks are the cultural must!
Likewise, you can use Chargehub’s application (iOS or Android), that facilitates your search in locating private, level 2 and fast charging stations offered by well-established networks like Electric Circuit, Flo, Tesla – and more.
