Visitors can now charge their cars in the parking lot of the recreation and community centre, located at 323, Montee de l'Eglise.

"Our municipality wants to encourage this technological and ecological shift by offering electric vehicles drivers a public charging station that will make their life easier. Thanks to Hydro-Quebec's grouped tender call we benefited from a great price. For many consumers, the availability of charging stations is a deciding factor in whether or not to purchase an electric vehicle," said Jean Dumais, Mayor of Saint-Colomban. "This decision was the obvious choice. But we know that what residents want is a network, not just one charging station. That's why Saint-Colomban is proud to be part of Electric Circuit's 600 charging stations. Let's hope that our small contribution will encourage others to make the switch to electricity, like the municipality of Saint-Colomban plans to do with its own fleet when the opportunity arises."

"We are delighted that a municipality such as Saint-Colomban now offers a charging service to owners of electric vehicles," said France Lampron, Director - Transportation Electrification at Hydro-Quebec, on behalf of the Electric Circuit's founding partners. "The municipality's partnership will allow us to improve the public charging offering in an area that is growing."

With the inauguration in Saint-Colomban, there are now 54 Electric Circuit charging stations in service throughout the Laurentides region.
