    Sun Country has much more than one location in Quebec. They are planning to do a big roll-out soon.

    By 90A they mean a 90A circuit with 70A continuous power, e.g. Roadster HPC power level.

    It looks like there's also some kind of charging station in Trois Rivieres. Does anyone know what that consists of?

    A first charger in the eastern region of Quebec, makes this an half way point between Quebec City and new Brunswick .

    And it says 90Amps in the article. And free charging.
    This is awesome news!

    I thought SCH would move from west coast to east coast, but it seems they are mixing it up a bit. Similar chargers between Montreal and (1) Quebec and (2) Toronto would make me a VERY happy camper. A camper that will now be getting dual chargers in his S!

    I wonder how that will fit in with the provincial "Circuit Electrique" network of charging stations currently being built.

    Hi,

    My name is Olivier and i am in charge of SCH operation in Quebec and Maritimes.

    The Universel Hotel in Rivière-du-loup is one many other stations that we have deployed in quebec.
    We will unveil them every time we do a launch in Quebec and you will be more than impressed with what we have accomplished.

    Yes all the stations are 90 amps to accommodate every single Ev owners who drives in and Tesla's are of course top of the line.
    Also the stations are free to use when you visit the facilities of our partners (Hotel room, lunch or a quick coffee to fill up)

    In the days to come you will see stations all across Quebec, for more informations do not hesitate to contact me via email.
    If you want i can put you in a Tesla only list and keep you up to date with the latest news around Quebec, Maritimes and even more in the close future.

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Hi,

    Do not worry you will be pretty surprised with what we will do in the Maritimes, and no you won't have to wait till 2014

    Stay tuned for more infos regarding the 401 in Ontario and Quebec 20 & 40 highways.

    Regarding the Circuit Electric we are not working on the same type of network as we build the most powerful network in the world at 90 amps

    Another Sun Country charger in Québec ? From the looks of it, it seems to be.

    This one is privately owned, but publicly accessible. 15km from the highway 40, in between Montréal and Québec City.

    You can shop for furniture at the business owner shop, a Volt owner, while you charge : R.Tessier et Fils

    The news : Une borne électrique inaugurée Ã* Saint-Narcisse - Mon véhicule - L'Hebdo Mékinac Des Chenaux

    The location : Google Maps

    Maritime Tour:

    How neat will this be- NS, PEI, that little Quebec Island, Newfoundland, and even Labrador! We could trailer across USA, park the rig in Maine near the border, and do an extended electric tour starting from NB. I'll be sure to bring a 120v cable since that's a lot of miles thru many small towns.

    Actually PEI is all done now, NS is in the work and this little island (Iles de la Madeleine) will have to wait next year since it's "closed" for the winter.
    that would be a fantastic trip for you and don't worry small towns will also have chargers.
    All of them 70 amps and free of charge to use.

    We have absolutely no affiliation with them, we are doing our network and building not only the longest but the most powerful highway in the world.
    We have a different model and so do they, thats all fine with me.

    SCH seems to be really serious about Canadian EV infrastructure!

    200 chargers along the Trans-Canada HWY; 1000 chargers nationwide by the end of next year!

    Or so I've heard.
