Access to 240V charging at home is one of the largest contributing factors to a successful transition to electric cars.
The Quebec government, some municipalities and even some companies have understood this concept. To that effect, numerous subsidy programs exist to encourage the purchase and installation of residential charging stations, no matter the building.
NOTE: these rebates ARE NOT TAXABLE for individuals.
You can receive $600 in financial assistance for the purchase AND installation of a 240-volt home charging station. Please note that only the owner or long-term lessee of the electric vehicle can apply for this program. Make sure that the invoice for the charging station is in your name.
You can receive financial assistance totalling 50% of eligible expenses related to the installation of a charging station (up to $5,000).
More and more Quebec municipalities have chosen to encourage their citizens to move away from oil in order to participate in the energy transition and the fight against climate change. Subsidies ranging from $100 to $500 are available, in addition to the other government incentives!
Some Quebec companies have also chosen to encourage their employees to move away from oil, in order to participate in the energy transition and the fight against climate change. Subsidies ranging from $100 to $500 are available, in addition to other incentives.

Installing a residential charging station makes charging an EV as easy and convenient as charging any rechargeable device. However, in most cases, it requires changes to the building's electrical system which must be done by professionals.
But for the savvy homeowner, this building upgrade is an investment that can increase the property’s value, as plug-in vehicles become the norm. In fact, more and more new buildings are already planning electrical installations to that effect.
Ultimately, this type of installation in buildings will benefit all future owners or tenants.
