Major DCQC announcement in Canada

Wed Aug 27, 2014 6:11 pm

The Azra corporation plans to install about 50 dual-standard DCQC. They are a real-estate company with diverse holdings. Notably they own a number of small commercial centers off highways. However, their portfolio also includes office buildings and apartments.

Most of the initial installations will be in Quebec, but they have plans for other provinces. Reports point to a fee by the minute working out to $10/hr. (16.67 cents/minute).

November 1st is when the first station is scheduled to enter service and Azra's CEO appears very enthusiastic about the project. Indeed, he recently acquired an i3.

This info is from the French sites aveq.ca and roulezelectrique.com. Details to follow in the coming weeks.

Cool. If VT continues to fill in too, we can vacation in Quebec next summer.

Is there a link to a press release or something you could post? I see NOTHING on their site about this.

The network's site only says in construction.

Otherwise, it was reported on the top two French-language EV sites in Quebec.

Note: In the article they mention about 5$/charge. However, a later explanation made it clear this is not a flat-rate, rather an estimate for an average of about 30 minutes billed based on $10/hour.
