How can I charge my Chevy Bolt EV at home?

Energy prices affect everyone, whether someone is heating or cooling their homes or fueling up their vehicles at the gas station each week. Chevrolet is on the cutting edge of electric vehicle development with the continued development of the Chevy Bolt EV and the upcoming electrified Silverado. Most automakers would be happy to stop vehicle charging efforts at the edge of a dealership’s sales lot, but Chevy isn’t most automakers. If you have been wondering, ‘How can I charge my Chevy Bolt EV at home,’ Budds’ Chevy has some exciting news for you. Customers who buy or lease a 2022 Bolt before Dec. 31 can be eligible for an at-home charging station.

“This is another step to make EV ownership easier and more accessible to everyone,” Laura Pacey, brand director of Chevrolet Canada, said in a press release. “We understand the ability to conveniently charge at home or on the go plays heavily into a customer’s decision to purchase an EV and we’re providing the access to solutions to simplify the EV experience for all Canadians.”

How much does it cost to install a Chevy Bolt EV charging system at my house?

Budds’ Chevrolet Buick GMC customers who qualify for and take advantage of the automaker’s at-home vehicle charging incentive may have a professionally installed Level 2 charging unit installed at their primary residence, free of charge.* The program will cover purchasing and installing a 240-volt wall outlet (NEMA 14-50 outlet) and a 40-amp breaker (installed in an existing panel). Chevrolet will also provide qualifying Bolt EV buyers with a dual-level charging cord which may have to be sent to the Bolt EV owner separately**. Chevy listed the cord as having a later availability. 

Be sure to ask a Budds’ Chevy product expert about eligibility details and requirements.

Chevy Canada FLO Public Charging Credits

Some Budds’ Chevy customers might not qualify for the primary at-home EV charging incentives because they already have a unit installed or, possibly, because they are renting their home. Chevy has these people covered as well. Bolt EV owners who can’t have the charging unit installed may qualify for a $750 CAD credit that can be used at FLO charging stations or at FLO partner network chargers. Charging times at public charging stations can vary depending on the equipment being used.

Anyone with questions about the 2022 Chevy Bolt EV or the electric vehicle charging incentives available with purchase should make an appointment with a Budds’ Chevy Buick GMC product expert today.

*Offer available to eligible customers who purchase or lease a new 2022 Bolt EV or EUV between June 1, 2021 and December 31, 2021 from a Chevrolet Bolt EV dealer in Canada. Offer includes purchase and installation of a 240V outlet (NEMA 14–50 outlet and new 40-amp breaker in existing panel) from a GM selected vendor.
