EV Chargers in condos
We booked a condo a while back to be ready for mid-late 2024, while this was a good decision remains to be seen (haha) .. we did a quick 15 minute call with their design studios and were interesting in spending a whopping $1900 for an EV charger.
L1 EV chargers are through your basic outlet that gives a charge speed of 6 km/h, this solution is quite impractical for almost all EV owners. You can't wait for your car to charge for an entire day, winters are an absolute no go here.
L2 EV chargers on the other hand gives anywhere from 40 to 60km/h, and all EV owners have this option.
Now the developer is saying that $1900 will give is a L1 charger, which does not make sense, especially for that cost. And if I do not select this option, I can NEVER EVER install an EV Charger.
I am thinking an EV charger on the parking spot would be a good deal as there maybe a lot more adaptability for EVs in the future.
So my question is - has anyone installed L2 EV chargers after the pre-construction was ready? Is the developer correct in this? And what are costs aurounding a 240V EV charger if the condo board allows for this.
A $1900 for a standard 120V outlet seems just so unreasonable though.
