How to install an EV charging station at home

Comment installer une station de recharge de VE à domicile
In Quebec, 7,000 public electric charging stations are in operation. The city of Laval has about 80 of them and plans to expand its public network to meet the growing need of electric vehicle consumers. These stations allow green motorists to recharge their batteries when their trips exceed their range.
These charging stations are generally found near restaurants, businesses and parking lots. In addition to public charging stations, it is also possible to have a residential electric charging station for added convenience.

Electric charging station at the residence

Electric car owners typically install an electric charging station at their homes. These stations should be installed in a garage or outside on a house wall.
Each electric vehicle comes with a charger plugs into a standard 120-volt outlet. To travel 200 km, you will need a 20-hour charge. For a 3 to 7 times faster charge, you need to purchase a 240-volt charging station from either a car dealer, manufacturer, or supplier.

For a safe and reliable installation, you will need to hire a certified electrician to meet the standards of the Régie du Bâtiment du Québec. The cost of a residential charging station is between $600 and $1300, and its installation is between $400 and $1100. You will need to spend an average of $1500 to have your own residential electric charging station.

. Start your day off right with a charged car! All you have to do to keep your battery full is plug it in at home the night before and keep it there until the following day. In addition, in Quebec, driving 100 km on electricity costs about 6 times less than going on gasoline, so an electric charging station at your home will save you money.

Electric vehicles in Quebec

Several dealerships in Quebec, particularly in Laval, QC, now offer 100% electric cars to reduce your ecological footprint.

Take the example of the manufacturer Ford, who, in 2022, released its first 100% electric vehicle, the Ford Mustang Mach-E, which received an award of great distinction as "Best Electric SUV 2022". Plus, charging your Mustang Mach-E is as quick and easy as charging your phone. All Ford 100% electric cars have a mobile charger that connects to a 240-volt outlet. All you need is expert installation, and your home electric charging station is ready to go. The Mustang Mach-E offers SUV enthusiasts the opportunity to drive green while enjoying a full 400 km range.
