Frequently Asked Questions
Is home EV charging available in Canada?
The Canadian government is providing discounts of up to $5,000 for the purchase or rental of qualifying zero-emission vehicles through the new iZEV programme (ZEV). At the time of purchase or rental, the reduction is applied immediately to the sticker price at the dealership.
How fast are home EV chargers?
Electric vehicles (EVs) can be recharged at different speeds depending on the capacity of the battery. Charging capacity can be divided into three categories:
Level 1 charging includes plugging in a standard cord set that comes with all EVs into a wall socket. This is the slowest level of charging (110 Volts/15 Amps) with an approximately 8 km range per hour of charging.
Level 2 charging is the most common level of charging with similar requirements to a clothing dryer or stove. Level 2 chargers can be installed in homes and commercial facilities by licensed electricians. They charge slightly faster than Level 1 chargers (240 Volts/30 Amps) with approximately 35 km range per hour of charging.
Level 3 charging/direct current (DC) is the fastest level of charging (400 Volts/100 Amps). Level 3 stations charge a battery from empty to 80% in 30-45 minutes with approximately 250 km range per hour of charging.
What is a DC fast charger??
The fastest charging method is the DC fast charger, often known as the Level 3 charger, however it is also the most expensive to use. Power output for the DC fast charger ranges from 50 kW to 350 kW in capacity.
DC fast chargers are frequently exclusively utilised in commercial or industrial settings or at the start of a highway due to their expensive cost and very high power output.
An EV will refuel at a rate of 3 to 20 miles of range per minute on a Level 3 charger. This indicates that it will take between 30 and 45 minutes for your EV to reach full charge.
However, the scarcity of stations across the nation is a significant disadvantage of DC fast chargers.
