With the entire market moving towards green technology, installing an Electric Vehicle Charging system is important if you have an electric vehicle, or if you are adding investment to the value of your home.
Each electric vehicle comes with the option to simply plug into a standard 120 Volt outlet, however 1 hour of charging will get you about 8km of driving range or take about 20 hours to charge. Choosing to invest in Level 2 charging will decrease your charge time significantly to about 8 hours for a full charge and is the most popular choice for most Electric Vehicle owners, as well as a wise choice for the future value of your home. Between 2012 and 2017 the number of EV charging stations in Canada went from 100 up to over 4000, and that number continues to grow.
