Where Can We Install EV Chargers?
EV chargers can be installed anywhere there is access to a power source. Commercial and industrial businesses, multi-residential units, public spaces will all require EV charging stations.
Are There Different Types of Chargers?
There are four types of chargers. Two are AC (most common) and two are DC (less common but more powerful). No Matter which charger you get, adapters are available for all types.
Type 1 is a single-phase plug and is standard for EVs from North America. It allows you to charge your car at a speed of up to 7.4 kW, depending on the charging power of your car and grid capability.
Type 2 plugs are three-phase. They can produce up to 22 kW, while public charging stations can have a charging power up to 43 kW, again depending on the charging power of your car and grid capability.
CCS: The CCS plug is an enhanced version of the type 2 plug, with two additional power contacts for the purposes of quick charging. It supports AC and DC charging. It allows charging at a speed of up to 350 kW.
CHAdeMO: This quick charging system was developed in Japan

- Typically used in residential and multi-unit dwellings
- Requires 240-volt AC outlet
- Provides up to 10-60 miles of range per hour of charging
- Typically installed at home or in public locations such as parking garages, workplaces, and retail centres
Level 3 Charger (DC Charger)
- Commonly use in multi-unit and commercial applications

Assuming you drive 1,000 km per month and your EV has an efficiency of 20 kWh per 100 km, you would consume approximately 200 kWh of electricity per month. At an average cost of $0.15 per kWh, this would result in a monthly electricity cost of $30 for charging your EV.
- Small Battery EV (e.g., Nissan Leaf): 3-5 hours
- Mid-Size Battery EV (e.g., Chevy Bolt): 5-8 hours
- Large Battery EV (e.g., Tesla Model S): 8-12 hours
