    Yes, I got the same one.

    Over the weekend I used the AddÉnergie stations under the Intercontinental Hotel in Old Montreal (Centre de commerce mondial de Montréal). Beware that the session timer runs until the plug replaced in the holder, regardless if the car is drawing power.

    For example, I plugged in at 3:30pm and unplugged the next morning which was a 15hr session but the car only charged for 5hrs. When they start charging $1 per hour it will encourage people to move their cars once the charge is completed - which makes sense to keep the spots open but would be a pain if your charge completes in the middle of the night. Next they need to figure out how to charge ICE cars that block the spots!

    I think it's a good thing overall. This will make the stations more available for those who really need them.

    So the local guy in a Volt won't be using the space as a VIP parking. My concern when traveling is that I never know if the station is taken so this will improve the odds.

    The flat 2.50$ from circuit électrique is totally ridiculous.
