How much do charging stations cost?
Most residential stations range from $800 to $1,200 to purchase. The installation cost varies from case to case, but, on average, will cost $800-$1,000 in parts and labour. The best thing to do is contact an electrician and have them provide a quote. British Columbia, Ontario and Québec have government incentive programs for the purchase and installation of a home charging station. Visit Incentives for more information.
Public charging stations fall under two categories: Networked and Non-Networked. Networked stations have internet connections and allow the owner to control access to the station, charge a fee for service and print usage/maintenance reports among other features. They range from $8,000-$10,000 to purchase. Non-Networked units do not have internet connections and cannot be controlled. They range from $2,000-$4,000 to purchase.
