Beaconsfield is Now Equipped with Charging Stations for Electric Vehicles

BEACONSFIELD, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Nov. 25, 2016) - Thanks to a partnership with Electric Circuit, the City of Beaconsfield is pleased to welcome its first two 240 volts charging stations to the Christmas Park parking lot on Beaconsfield Boulevard. Clearly identified areas are strictly reserved for electric cars users.

"We are proud to contribute to increasing the charging infrastructure network for electric vehicles and facilitate the adoption of this type of transport. This is also an opportunity to invite new customers in our area likely to use other local services, such as pharmacy, hardware store or restaurants, "said Mayor Georges Bourelle.

All plug-in electric vehicle models available in Québec are equipped with a socket that is compatible with 240-volt charging stations. The rate for charging in Christmas Park is $1 per hour, billed by the minute. For example, if a vehicle is connected to a station for three hours, charging will cost $3, even if the vehicle was completely charged after one hour.
