The City of Westmount has installed two new 208-volt charging stations equipped with 240-volt-compatible sockets. The stations are located at the Westmount Recreation Centre, 4675 St. Catherine Street West.
The hourly rate for charging a vehicle at 208 Volts is $1 (taxes included), billed by the minute and based on the length of time the vehicle is connected to the charging station. If a vehicle is connected to a station for three hours, for example, a fee of $3 will be applied, even if the vehicle was completely charged after one hour. Please note that normal parking restrictions apply. Pay attention to signage.
To find out the tariff for any charging station in the province, consult the Electric Circuit mobile app or the Electric Circuit Web site under the section Find a station.
