Why Should I Install an EV Charger?

  • Convenience: Installing an EV charger at your home or workplace allows you to charge your vehicle at your convenience, eliminating the need to find public charging stations.
  • Cost savings: Home charging is generally more cost-effective than using public charging stations. Many utility companies offer lower electricity rates during off-peak hours, making home charging even more economical.
  • Time efficiency: With a personal EV charger, you can avoid waiting in line at public charging stations. This ensures that your vehicle is always ready to go when you are, saving you valuable time.
  • Increased property value: Adding an EV charger can enhance the value of your property. As more people transition to electric vehicles, having an installed charger can be a selling point for future buyers.
  • Enhanced battery health: Regular and consistent charging at home can help maintain the health and longevity of your EV battery, supporting optimal performance over time.
  • Environmental impact: By charging at home, you can better control and use renewable energy sources. This contributes to a reduction in your carbon footprint and supports a greener environment.
  • Eligible for incentives: Many regions, including Metro Vancouver, offer rebates and incentives for installing home EV chargers. These financial incentives can significantly reduce the initial cost of installation.
  • Peace of mind: Knowing that you have a reliable and dedicated charging station at your disposal provides peace of mind, especially during emergencies or long trips.

By choosing to install an EV charger, you are not only investing in your vehicle's convenience and efficiency but also contributing to a sustainable future. Contact us today to learn more about our installation services and how we can help you make a seamless transition to electric driving.

What Type of EV Charger Do I Need?

When considering the installation of an EV charger, it's essential to choose the right type to suit your needs. 

There are primarily three levels of EV chargers, each offering different benefits and features:

  • Level 1 charger: This is the most basic type of EV charger, usually delivered with the vehicle. It uses a standard 120-volt household outlet and is perfect for plugging in at home. While it's the slowest option, offering around 3-5 miles of range per hour of charging, it's convenient for overnight charging or when shorter drives are the daily norm.
  • Level 2 charger: This charger requires a 240-volt outlet, similar to what is used for large appliances like dryers. Level 2 chargers significantly reduce charging times, providing about 12-60 miles of range per hour of charging. This type of charger is ideal for most residential installations and is perfect for EV owners who need their car charged more quickly between uses. It's also common in public charging stations.
  • Level 3 charger (DC fast charger): Known for its speed, a Level 3 charger uses direct current (DC) to charge the battery directly, bypassing the onboard charger in the vehicle. These chargers can deliver up to 20 miles of range per minute of charging but are typically expensive and more suitable for commercial use or high-traffic areas. They are not generally installed in residential properties due to their high power requirements and cost.

Our team of experts is dedicated to helping you select the best EV charger to fit your lifestyle and needs. From identifying the right charger based on your driving habits to delivering a seamless installation process, we are here to make your transition to electric driving as smooth and stress-free as possible.

How Much Does It Cost to Install an EV Charger?

When considering the installation of an EV charger, various factors come into play that can influence the overall cost. The first and most significant factor is the type of EV charger you choose to install. Level 1 chargers typically have the lowest installation costs as they can be plugged into a standard 120-volt outlet. Level 2 chargers, on the other hand, require a 240-volt outlet and possibly an upgrade to your electrical panel, increasing the complexity and cost of installation. The most expensive option, the Level 3 charger, is rarely used for residential installations due to its high power requirements and costs.

The existing electrical infrastructure in your home also plays a crucial role in determining the cost. If your electrical panel is already near capacity, you may need an upgrade to support the additional load, which can add to the expense. Additionally, the distance from the electrical panel to the installation location affects the cost since longer distances require more wiring and potentially more labour.

Permitting and inspection fees mandated by local regulations can contribute to the overall cost. It's essential to comply with these requirements to ensure the safety and reliability of your EV charger installation. At Moore and Russell, we can help you understand these regulations so your experience is hassle-free.

Labour costs can vary based on the complexity of the installation and the specific requirements of your property. A straightforward installation in a garage close to the electrical panel will generally cost less than an installation requiring extensive wiring or trenching.

Lastly, additional features like smart charging capabilities, integration with renewable energy systems, or enhanced safety features can influence the overall price. While these features can add to the initial cost, they often provide long-term benefits such as improved energy efficiency and greater convenience.
