Invest in an innovative and responsible project

Discover Ecocharge

EcoCharge is a network of 100 fast-charging stations adapted to the electric vehicles of today and tomorrow. Deployed throughout Quebec and New Brunswick, it facilitates everyday life by allowing you to charge your vehicle while grocery shopping at one of the 50 IGA partner sites.
Providing 62.5 kW of power, the Fonds Éco IGA powered charging stations make it the fastest multi-vehicle charging network in Canada.

The first evse network owned by an environmental charity organization

Earth Day Canada, an environmental organization operating for more than 25 years, believes in the development of electric vehicles to mitigate the environmental impact of transportation. That's why the organization launched the EcoCharge project in November 2020 with the objective of installing 100 charging stations in 50 IGA parking lots.

An environmental and social project for the future

  • Over the 10 years of expected operation of EcoCharge, 102,650 tons of GHGs will be avoided (for example, a combustion vehicle emits 50 tons of GHGs over 10 years).
  • Funding for charging will benefit engaged communities, while simultaneously increasing the resiliency of our road network to accommodate the addition of more than 10,000 electric vehicles while minimizing pollution.
  • On the 22nd of each month, the entire amount of the day's refills will be donated to a local charity.
  • Charging stations compatible with all-electric vehicles, including Tesla models (adapter available at the service desk of the partner store).
  • Always installed in pairs on the sites, the charging stations can be coupled to provide a power of 125 kW and are therefore suitable for the next generation of electric vehicles.
