Electric Vehicle Charging Stations in Canada
In spite of the fact that sales of electric vehicles have grown in recent years, many new EV owners have questions about how to charge their vehicles. According to the Toronto Star, Tesla sold nearly 1 million vehicles in Canada in 2021, and the Model 3 was the fifth-best-selling car in the country overall. Sales of electric vehicles have increased dramatically. Across the board, automakers saw a decline in sales, while Tesla saw a nearly 1 million vehicle sale in 2021. We get a lot of questions at Wilson Electric about how to charge our Teslas. As Tesla’s supercharger network continues to grow, we believe that all Tesla owners should install a Tesla home charger. Why is it important, and how much will it cost? We’ll answer those questions
Should I Install A Tesla Home Charger Station?
Of course there’s much more to it than that, but the short answer is ‘yes.’ After all, we know the Tesla wall charger+installation fees can be costly (we’ll get to fees in a moment).
Having a Level 2 home charger for your Tesla makes owning an electric car more convenient. Level 1 chargers can only add up to 17 kilometres of driving range per hour, depending on the Tesla model, and the number can be considerably lower in cold weather.
While this amount of charge may be adequate for those who drive little daily, it will be too limiting for many. A Level 2 Tesla home charger can charge much faster, adding 48-70 kilometres of range per hour of charging.
How much does Tesla Home Charging Station Cost?
The Tesla Gen 3 wall connector’s initial price is roughly $700 CAD. However, there are two answers to the cost question. This figure doesn’t include the cost of installation. For those who want to install a Tesla home charger, they’ll also have to pay an installation cost, which might be higher or lower depending on the electrical panel’s capacities. Most homes currently have 200-amp service panels, which should make it easy to install a Tesla wall charger. An electrician will be required to upgrade the electrical service to at least 200 amps if the panel is still 100 amps. A demand charge controller or a more comprehensive panel upgrade is required for those with 200-amp service panels and suites.
