Your Questions. Our Answers
Frequently Asked Questions
Find answers to all the most commonly asked questions about EV charging installations
How much is it to install an EV charger at my home?
Installation pricing can vary depending on your home charging hardware and electrical system. A straightforward installation can range from $750 - $1,500. However, if there are additional items needed to complete your installation, the price will be adjusted accordingly.
What electrical requirements does my home/office need prior to install?
An electrical contractor must verify there is sufficient power available and that there is room in your existing panel for the new load.
What are the vehicle incentives provided by BC Federal and Provincial grants
You could save up to $8000 on Eligible Vehicles Here’s a list of electric vehicles in B.C. that are eligible for a combination of provincial and federal rebates. Rebates vary based on the vehicle’s type and model, and are applied to the price of the car by the dealer at the time of sale or lease.

What do I require to apply for a personal residential/Condo EVSE grant?
1. A copy of the invoice for the charger installation by a licensed electrician showing proof of payment. This must show costs broken down by activities performed.
2. Contact information for the electrician (first and last name, phone number, email address)
3. Electrical permit number for the installation
4. Remaining Electrical capacity after EV Charging Installation (Requires an on-site Load Assessment)
5. Submit your paperwork to Bc-hydro and you will receive your rebate in 2-4 weeks.
What is the difference between level 1 and level 2 charger?
Level 1 charger typically comes with the vehicle and requires a dedicated 20 Amp receptacle. These chargers nearly take a day to charge the vehicle and are recommended for hybrids only. There is no rebate for these type of installations.

Level 2 charger will charge faster, the quality of the charge is more reliable and better on the batteries life. These installs can be hardwired or a permanent female receptacle installed with a removable charger unit rated at 40 or 50 amps.
How long does the EV Charger Installation Take?
An average Ev Charger can take less than a day of work to install.
Commercial Retrofit Installation?
Most commercial installations require pre-approval and the contractor to be a Trusted BC Hydro Power Smart Member. A rebate of up to 50% of costs to install the electrical infrastructure required to implement your EV Ready plan, to a maximum of $600 per parking space, and a project maximum of $80,000. We would work with our electrical engineering partners to provide an EV Ready Report and get pre-approved for your incentive.
Can my home handle the additional load?
A 200Amp Service is recommended for most EVSE Installations. Depending on your household/Condo current demand and service size there are other options if you require a 200Amp Service Upgrade. We can provide a EVEMS (Electrical Vehicle Management System) which is less expensive and palpable for clients to get their installation done.
Can someone else use my charger if it is readily available outside my house?
Depending on the style of charger, YES. Technically someone could hook up to your power. To remove this concern, communicate with us and we will provide a price for a Wi-Fi enabled EV Charger that will lock itself when you don’t want it used
