Quebec gets new solar EV charging station

Screen Shot 2016-04-11 at 6.16.03 PMTwo Quebec companies, renewz inc. and Roulez Électrique have signed an agreement to install an iSun solar carport at the “Station Roulez Électrique” of Trois-Rivières in Quebec.

The companies say this facility will be the first of its kind in Quebec. The station aims to offer all the services surrounding the fueling of electric vehicles.

“This is an important moment for renewz,” said CEO and founder Sass M. Peress. “We have already installed several solar carports throughout the United States and Ontario. We had not yet had the chance to develop solar installation projects in Quebec.”

“With the signing of the agreement, renewz will now have a concrete example in Quebec of the marriage between distributed renewable energy and recharging of electric vehicles,” Peress added.

The station will have a laboratory that will assess stationary battery concepts.

“Our charging station will become a showcase for technologies related to electric cars and renewable energy,” said Sylvain Juteau, president of Roulez Électrique.  “It will also be a place of initiation and experimentation.”

The station will also be one of the first places in Quebec to have a Tesla Powerwall battery.  Solar panels mounted on the car port will act as a backup system in case of power failure in order to continue to recharge electric vehicles.

“Solar panels will demonstrate that there is no monopoly when it comes to electric cars,” said Juteau. “Motorists who choose the electric car will still be able to produce themselves at least part of the electricity needed to move their car.”
