Maine and Quebec Announce Electric Vehicle Corridor Initiative

Governor Paul LePage and Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard recently announced in Quebec City an initiative to expand electric vehicle infrastructure between the State of Maine and Quebec.

The electric vehicle corridor initiative, announced today in Quebec City, will build a public-private partnership to increase electric vehicle charging stations for travel between Quebec and Portland and assess the feasibility of additional charging stations to improve transit to other tourist locations in Maine.

“Tourism is our biggest industry, and it is critical that we ensure we have the electric vehicle infrastructure to ensure that the people of Quebec can continue to visit our beautiful state,” said Governor LePage. “The history of the Quebec and Maine relationship is strong, and we must maintain our connectivity with modern transportation infrastructure. Electric vehicles have made significant progress and are coming to Maine. It’s vital we have a plan to make Maine open to this important technological change.”
