Chevrolet is about to release the Volt electric car to dealerships nationwide. With that, consumers will need a port to charge their Volt vehicles.
Chevrolet has made such an agreement with a supplier to offer Chevrolet Volt owners one of the most affordable 240V home charging units on the market.
Priced at $490 before installation, Chevrolet's "Voltec" 240V home charging unit is one of several units to be offered for sale by SPX Service Solutions, a national provider of home charging installation services and equipment.
According to GM; "The Voltec 240V home charging unit can charge the Volt's battery from depleted to charged in about four hours, compared with 10 hours with the standard 120V charge cord that plugs into a household outlet. Installation of the Voltec 240V charging unit is estimated at $1,475 but can vary based upon electrical requirements."
In addition, SPX will sell a variety of home charging stations - they will also manage aspects of installation for Volt owners, including home survey, installation, permitting, Department of Energy and utility coordination, identification of available programs and incentives for reduced charging rates.
