EV Charging Stations

Birnie HOME SAFE understands the importance of installing your charging station safely, correctly and to code. With a full range of inventory, from industry leaders like Leviton and Schneider Electric, there is a model to suit every homeowner’s needs.

The Province of Ontario is making it easier to invest in green technology. Drivers can take advantage of several incentives, which includes a rebate of up to $1000.00 for the purchase and installation of their charging station, when installed by a Licensed Electrical Contractor.

It’s important to understand that an electric charging station, which can range from a 30- 50 amp service, will overload your circuit and compromise your home’s electric system if installed incorrectly.

Birnie HOME SAFE takes care of the guess work and gets you plugged in safely.

Quick Facts:

  • Drivers are eligible for rebates of up-to $14,000 for the purchase of their electric vehicle.

  • Ontario will offer a four-year “free overnight electric vehicle-charging program” in homes starting 2017.
  • The province intends to invest in the rapid deployment of charging in workplaces, multi-unit residential buildings, downtowns and town centers.
  • Ontario intends to require all new homes and townhomes with garages to be constructed with a 50-amp, 240-volt receptacle (plug) in the garage for the purpose of charging an electric vehicle.
  • Ontario intends to establish a requirement that, as of 2018, all newly built commercial office buildings and appropriate workplaces must provide charging infrastructure
  • The province intends to help get older and less fuel-efficient vehicles off the roads by offering a rebate to low- and moderate-income households that will help them replace old cars with new or used electric vehicles or a plug-in hybrid.

Please note existing electrical issues or hazards, in the home, may warrant the need of a full-day electrical inspection with subsequent repairs.
