The Electric Circuit
The Electric Circuit, powered by Hydro-Quebec, is one of the biggest networks of charging stations for electric vehicles in Quebec and Ontario. They offer level 2 charging stations (240 volts) and fast charging stations (level 3). Their level 2 charging stations have a plug compatible for all North American electric vehicles. As for their fast (level 3) charging stations, they have a SAE Combo connector or a CHAdeMO connector. Locate the Electric Circuit charging stations in various parking lots (paid and free) using ChargeHub’s charging station map.The charging station’s availability and description (connector, price, location, etc.) will also be indicated on this map.
To use a charging station powered by the Electric Circuit, you must have an Electric Circuit service card or use their mobile application. The Electric Circuit card can be ordered online and $10 fees (plus tax) apply when you order a new card. When members opens an account and receive their card, they must afterwards deposit money in their account to use the charging stations. The Electric Circuit card also works with charging stations powered by the FLO network.
