    Charging Recommendations for Model 3 and Non-Tesla

    Our house has a 400A service to it and we are looking at how we can set up the garage charging to work for us. One EV will be a Model 3, and our second one may be a non-Tesla. My initial thought was to have one 100A circuit, as some chargers can load balance between to connected chargers...

    Net Zero House and 200A Service or More

    This is required in the Canadian electrical code. They are aware people will stagger it but they won’t want any skin in the game either.

    Net Zero House and 200A Service or More

    Nearly all homes have a NG connection for space and water heating. Many neighbourhoods are on a 100A with some now reaching 200A. Yes the building will be approaching passivhaus standards. We are striving for under 0.5 ACH at 50 pascals. Once we finalize our first version of drawings we will...

    Net Zero House and 200A Service or More

    I have received a quote for a Powerwall which would be roughly 14K installed. Even without the EVs our loads would require a higher service than the 100A which will require a similar cost as the material is the smallest portion of the cost. I would have to look into solar water heating. Could...

    Net Zero House and 200A Service or More

    Okay. One method I am leaning towards is to use Clipper Creek's Share2 chargers off one 80A circuit. As I get home before she does I would get the full draw (even with the model 3 only with a 40A onboard charger), then when she comes home and plugs in her car we each share 40A. This way it cuts...

    Net Zero House and 200A Service or More

    For a difference of only 4k that seems well worth it. I know a couple electricians, will see what they say. Did you do a subpanel in the garage, or just a circuit to it?

    Net Zero House and 200A Service or More

    I am building a net zero house in Edmonton Canada, which will not have a gas service to it. It will have a 13kW solar array and I want to pre-wire it to support two future EVs. Sadly this new neighbourhood only has 100A services to their lots. There will be an electric heat pump, with auxiliary...
