The city of Rivière-du-Loup in Québec, Canada, has 67 public charging station ports (Level 2 and Level 3) within 15km. 70% of the ports are level 2 charging ports and 36% of the ports offer free charges for your electric car.
Based in the touristic region of Lower St. Lawrence, the City of Rivière-du-Loup has captured the spirit of electric transportation. By installing level 2 charging stations (240 Volts) and level 3 charging stations (400 Volts) within a radius of 10 miles, electric vehicle owners can easily drive on its territory. In addition, free charging stations have been installed across the municipality.
Here, we find many charging networks, such as Tesla, the Electric Circuit, FLO, Azra, Sun Country Highway and more.

In this regard, the Commercial centre of Rivière-du-Loup has installed three charging stations (level 2 and 3) for its customers. They are located north of Sport Experts, in the parking lot of the Commercial centre.
To raise awareness on the importance of electrifying our transportations, a symbolic sculpture in the shape of a life-size tree has been placed on the same site. The sculpture is equipped with LED lights and its trunk illuminates in an interactive way, changing from red to yellow to green – to symbolize the process of charging.
Next, the Cegep of Rivière-du-Loup offers new courses in innovative transportations in order to create a skilled labour force in sustainable mobility. This attestation of collegial studies (ACS) in Electric Vehicle Technology is equally offered at the Cegep of Saint-Jérôme, under the National Consortium of teaching competences in the area of electric vehicles (Connec-TÉ).
Another interesting fact; during their training, students will have access to a small electric vehicle – a Twizy 40 – through a partnership established with Azra Canada, a charging network based in Terrebonne.
On another note, the City of Rivière-du-Loup is a point of departure to go observe whales. You can discover these marine mammals by embarking on the AML Levant, which will bring you to the Marine Park of Saguenay-Saint-Lawrence.
