EV Charging Solutions
If the electric vehicle (EV) sector continues to grow as projected, nearly half the vehicles sold in Canada in 2030 will be electric. That’s the outlook according to a new report from Clean Energy Canada, in partnership with Navius Research. The study, “The Fast Lane: Tracking the Energy Revolution 2019,” lays out a road map of Canada’s clean energy future and its role in the economy. Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) will be rolling out the much needed Zero Emission Vehicle Infrastructure (ZEVI) incentive program early next year. It is sponsored by NRCan and aims to cover 50% of the cost of Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations for workplaces (commercial or industrial buildings), multi-residential buildings, public places and many others. We will be working with our clients to help them provide this important service for their customers, and utilize the incentive program with peace of mind.
EV Charger Quick Facts:
SAE J1772 (J Plug) Standard Chargers:
Level 1 Charging: Included with vehicle, plugs into typical house (120V AC) outlet. Max power 1.92 kW
Level 2 Charging: Dedicated EV Charging device with SAE J1772 connector. Uses a dedicated 208V or 240V AC circuit, charges up to 7 times faster than Level 1. Max power 19.2 kW
DC/Fast Charging: Fastest way to charge a compatible EV. Bypasses vehicle charging circuitry, does not use J Plug
* Telsa vehicles have their own connector, but has adaptors to allow the J Plug
