Sommets sur le Fleuve 4
This condo complex in l’Île-des-Soeurs is 100% ready for EV charging thanks to the RVE technologies installed. The project benefited from the expertise of engineering consulting firm Équipe SP and the team from Entreprises Électriques D. Chouinard for the installation, which was completed in 2022.

Powering an electric vehicle charging infrastructure in a multi-unit building where some of the electric meters are located on the roof (inaccessible) and others are located in the garage basement (accessible).
To power a charging infrastructure for the 173 units of this condominium, a dual solution was required. Indeed, since some of the meters were accessible while others were not, different technologies were installed.
For the units with accessible meters, the DCC product line was used:
- DCC-9-BOX, DCC-9-BOX3 and DCC-9-BOX6 to provide charging infrastructure without installing chargers right away
- DCC-9 for units with an electrical panel of 125A and less wanting a charger now
- DCC-11 for units with a 200A electrical panel wanting a charger now
For units where the electrical meter is inaccessible, the SMP product line was used:
- The SMP-18 smart panel can charge many EVs from one source and allows individual billing
“RVE was able to inform me about the different technologies available and explain the different steps to be taken. The technologies offered by RVE were well suited to the reality of Les Sommets. Some meters are located on the 23rd floor and others in the basement of the building. A combination of DCC and SMP smart panels was therefore essential to ensure that all residents could have the possibility of installing an electric car charger.”
