Our key moments
A Love for Electric Things
Early adopters of the electric vehicle, the Corbeil family became quick fans of the way an EV drives and for the potential it offers in the reduction of greenhouse gasses (GHGs). Being at the forefront also led David Corbeil and his father Pierre, both electricians in the family business, to see the challenges that home charging could bring about.
R&D and a Solution
Two years of research and development later, David and Pierre’s efforts to solve the problem led them to designing a prototype of a load shedding system.
David and his sister Marie-Pier founded RVE and launched the Demand Charge Controller (DCC). Soon following, a partnership with Thermolec, a Montreal-based electrical manufacturer, was established. That same year, the siblings were awarded the first prize of the Pierre-Péladeau scholarship from Québecor, worth $50,000.
A provisional patent for the DCC was issued in Canada. The first hundred units were produced and RVE signed an agreement with the largest electrical distributor in Quebec, Lumen.
The first employees were hired. RVE’s products were sent across Canada for distribution and first orders were filled in the United States.
100% Ready for Charging
The first multi-unit building was made 100% ready for electric vehicle charging thanks to products by RVE.
Helping More Than 500 Condo Units Charge
The permanent patent for the United States was issued. By this year, more than 500 condominiums benefited from RVE’s know-how and expertise in carrying out home charging projects.

Murbly is Launched
Finally, the Canadian permanent patent was issued. The team, now made up of a dozen employees, launched the Murbly information platform on which free resources and tools aimed at facilitating the process of adapting a condo building for EV charging are made available.
Moving and Expanding
A big year for RVE, new product lines are developed and a partnership is established with Qmerit USA. To support the growth of the company’s activities and the number of employees, which doubled in one year, RVE moved to new offices.
RVE establishes new departments and new positions are quickly formed. Organizational, digital, and process restructurings take place to accommodate the growth. Product sales expand across Canada and into more than 30 U.S. states.
