Installing EV chargers at your home can be a big decision. The cost of installation, and the potential upgrade to your home’s power grid can be time consuming. We take the guess work out of it.

Types of EV Chargers

A consumer and commercial charger that charges at least 7x faster than a Level 1.

It all comes down to your driving habits. At VCT Group, we are believers that the future of energy should be easy to adopt. Investing in a Level 2 charger provides you with more flexibility in your life. With faster charging, you can take unexpected trips and have the charge capacity to support secondary drivers. A better charger means effortless EV enjoyment.

Your Home's Electrical Service

Everyone’s home energy capacity is unique. For effective EV Charging, we recommend 200A minimum on your electrical panel. Upgrading your home’s electrical service prevents breaker trips and gives you the flexibility to install future projects like solar power, another charger for a second EV, hot tubs, or pools. 

The Truth About EV Range in Winter

Your vehicle’s range is based on factors such as the full potential of the curb weight, standard driving habits and the kWh of the battery system. The reality is winters are impactful on today’s batteries. According to the Norwegian Automobile Federation, most EVs on average lose about 20% of their quoted range during the winter, and more if you like toasty toes. This means that for about 5 to 6 months of the year in Canada, expect to charge your vehicle more often.
