New fast-charging stations to connect Quebec City with Portland, ME

By ,

The government of Quebec and the U.S. state of Maine have joined forces to implement a network of fast-charging stations for electric cars connecting Quebec City with Portland, Maine.

The announcement came during the annual gathering of New England governors and Eastern Canada prime ministers in Boston. 

According to La Presse, it will be similar to the electric network that’s been linking Montreal and Burlington, Vermont since 2013.

There will be 10 fast-charging stations along the way, going through the Armstrong-Jackman border crossing and the capital city of Maine, Augusta. All the stations on Quebec soil are already in place, actually, while no date for those in Maine has been set yet.

More charging stations may be added starting next year, allowing EV owners to charge their car to 80% in just 30 minutes.
