Level 2 Station

Details

In Québec, the price at level 2 charging stations  is either at a flat fee of $2,50, regardless of the length of charge or at an hourly rate of $1 billed by the second and based on the amount of time the vehicle is plugged in.  To see which rate applies at each charging station, you can consult the Electric Circuit mobile app or the Web site in the section Find a station.

Curbside charging in Montréal costs $1 per hour, billed by the second excluding parking fees. For example, if a vehicle is connected to a station for three hours, charging will cost $3.00, even if the vehicle was completely charged after one hour.

In Ontario, the price at level 2 charging stations is either at a flat fee of $4 regardless of the lengh of charge or at an hourly rate of $2 billed by the second and based on the amount of time the vehicle is plugged in.  To see which rate applies at each charging station, you can consult the Electric Circuit mobile app or the Web site in the section Find a station.

To have access to a charging station in a parking facility that charges fees, parking fees must be paid as they are not included in the charging cost.

WARNING: A $5 fee will be charged to your Electric Circuit account for all requests to activate a charging station through the CAA-Québec help line. This will be in addition to the cost of your charge. To avoid this fee, we’d like to remind you that the mobile app or your Electric Circuit card are always available when you need them.
