Electrify Canada Launches Homestation, a Level 2 Charger For the Home

Electrify Canada will sell a level 2 residential chargers

The Electrify Canada network has launched a new Level 2 residential charging station for electric vehicle owners.

Called HomeStation, the charging station offers adjustable power levels up to 40 amps and provides charging speeds up to 9.6 kW, which is obviously faster than the Level 1 charging station, 6.8 times faster according to the Canadian company. Electrify Canada claims that compatible vehicles will be able to regain up to 53 km of range per hour of charging. The charging station will be priced at $1,099 in Canada and comes standard with a 24-foot charging cable. What’s more, the charging station comes with a three-year parts warranty and 24-hour customer service.

“With 80% of electric vehicles being charged at home, it’s imperative that people have a charging system that fits into their daily lives,” says Nina Huesgen, senior director of home solutions and e-commerce at Electrify Canada. “Our state-of-the-art home charging station will help drive the adoption of electric vehicles by providing forward-thinking home charging solutions for electric vehicle users.”

The HomeStation charging station may not be installed with the help of a qualified electrician, although it is recommended, and this same station can be configured to provide 40, 32 or 16 amps, avoiding costly upgrades to the electrical circuitry in the home. With proper programming, it is possible for users to take advantage of lower rates on the local power grid during low-traffic hours.

Electrify Canada will also be redesigning its mobile app with new and improved features including a simplified account creation process, helpful tips on navigating the grid, notifications and tips throughout the charging process, optimized contactless payment and an intuitive display of charging station information.
