Quebec may require EV charging stations for all homes

Quebec may require EV charging stations for all homes

Although an EV charging mandate may sound expensive, it may not be as challenging to implement as it would seem. “It wasn’t standard in 1975. If you built a house today without an outlet for a dryer, no one would buy it,” says Quebec’s Transportation Minister Jacques Daoust. “We’re talking about a 30 ampere outlet. It’s not the end of the world.” An EV charging station installed in a new home would only increase the cost by around $400. In an older home, the installation of a charging station would cost $1500, $1000 of which would be subsidized by the government of Quebec. Upkeep costs for a station are relatively low at approximately $300 per year, assuming an annual mileage of 12,000.
