EV Chargers

With electric vehicles and green-living popularity on the rise in Victoria BC, many new EV owners are looking to outfit their garages and parking spaces with the correct charging stations. As a first time owner of an electric vehicle, it can be daunting to choose the perfect model for your lifestyle. To help you choose the best electric vehicle and charger to match, we have put together some information on the two most common types of EV chargers.

Ready to start living greener? Our team at Oceanvolt Electrical is ready and able to install a new charging station for your electric vehicle in your Victoria, BC home.
 

→ Standard 120 volt charging cords
→ Traditional 3-pronged plug that easily fits into grounded wall sockets
→ Draws 1400 watts of power, the slowest method of charging an electric vehicle
→ Places lower load on your electricity panel compared to other chargers
→ Great for overnight charging

Level 2 Charger

→ 240 volt charging cords

Level 1 Charger

For a Level 2 Tesla or ChargePoint, the average cost to supply, install and permit the charger is $2000. 

* This is the base cost if the charger is located in a garage next to the panel.
