Vancouver (GVRD) FREE professional electrical install of home charging station

I am an electrical contractor located in White Rock. I have a passion for the Tesla Model S and as such I am willing to do the electrical labour install of a Tesla home charging station for FREE!

Here's the catch, I get to go for a ride in the Tesla. Time and distance decided by owner.

- Charging station paid for by owner
- Material paid for by owner (breaker, wire and receptacle)
- Electrical panel must have availability for new breaker
- Electrical panel must be within 50ft of requested location of receptacle
- Permit and Inspections extra if requested
- Drywall, painting or other repairs done by others
- Labour FREE

Please call or email to discuss further details. I am putting this out as a one time deal. If multiple people contract me then I will most likely go with the one closest to White Rock.

Barter, huh? Will you report the equivalent dollar value on your tax return? :D

To anyone interested in my proposal.

Just so you are aware. LiveSmartBC will also provide a $500 rebate towards the purchase of the charging station.

As seen here:

I'm in North Van, I'd gladly take you up on the offer, Brian, but I'm about 1 year away from being able to place an order on a new MS!

When the time comes up, keep me in mind. FYI the LiveSmartBC rebate for charging station only goes till March 31st, 2014 (unless they extend the program). Might be something to keep in mind.

I will for sure, Brian.

I probably won't be able to get things moving in time for the Livesmart rebate unless they renew it. I hope the CEV rebate of $5k is carried over too!

If you can only afford the car with the rebate/credit, you can't afford it.

brian4591 | August 22, 2013


I'm going to assume the rebates will be extended. I do a lot of work with the BC Hydro PowerSmart Program rebates and they always get extended or slightly altered after the deadline.

Here is my first install:

Nice clean install. I'm just wondering why you ran the cable from the HPWC through the bottom of the holder rather than the top? Was it so that the cable would be higher when fully extended?

brian4591 | October 1, 2013


We ran the wire through the bottom of the holder just as a precaution. Worse case scenario if the cable catches on something and pulls hard we wanted a little bit of slack between the HPWC and the holder. Rather than the cable going straight down into it with no slack.
