Charger Purchase in Lower Mainland(or in Canada)

Thu Jul 21, 2016 1:33 pm

I'm trying to source a Leaf Charger in Canada and am finding it a bit challenging.

Costco.ca doesn't seem to have them anymore :(

The only other one I found was in Quebec:

But I've never heard of the brand.

Does anyone have recommendations as to where I can purchase one in store (BC Lower Mainland) or online in Canada?

Thanks!!

home depot doesn't have them now either- no matter, they would have been over priced.

try this, they are high quality re-branded clipper creek

failing that, if you think you EVER might want to L2 charge on the road, ie RV park or road trip consider a more compact portable L2 EVSE such as open EVSE

sun country looks pricy, might save $ just buying a clipper creek out of the US.

Thanks to all who responded.

The EV40P was $979 at Costco but they were out of stock. Sun Country Highway wanted $1019, plus $80 shipping plus taxes.

Costco would have been 979 x 1.12 = $1096 total (Free shipping)

Sun Country was $1019 + $80 (shipping) x 1.12 (taxes) = $1,230.00

I contacted Sun Country to ask if they could give better pricing given the Costco price, but they wouldn't budge.

Clipper Creek is $589 USD ($785CDN) but they only ship UPS.

Canadians get so ripped off sometimes.

List of available evse sold in Canada including electrical wholesalers who supply them : http://pluginbc.ca/charging-program/murb/manuf_list/
Check if municipal rebates in your area, even Nanaimo has one : http://www.rdn.bc.ca/cms.asp?wpID=2420
I purchased the Eaton EVSEL230HNAW when there was a BC rebate of $500 in '13 from Home depot online $949 at that time( I think all they sell now is the Schnieder EV230WS at $799) .
There are several of those Eaton units around this area and are of solid construction in and out also come with 24ft cord.

I ended up ordering a HCS-40P from Clipper Creek (US), and I was pleasantly surprised when UPS delivered it from the US to Canada with no surprises (although I had it shipped Worldwide Expedited).

The totals from Clipper Creek was $589 USD, $118 USD UPS shipping (worldwide expedited), and paying $102 CDN (GST/PST tax) when UPS came to my door, the total was only $1059 CDN.

The identical (Rebranded) charger at Costco (although out of stock) would have been just under $40 CDN more ($1096 CDN) with taxes, shipping included.

Sun Country's price in Canada for the same rebranded charger was almost $180 more (rip off).

I was impressed with Clipper Creek when I called and did the order, and the shipping was only 4 days .

Thank you Clipper Creek!


(I'm still annoyed with Sun Country in Canada for not putting any efforts into being competitive).

FLO (formerly VERnetwork) just announced their X5 EVSE https://flo.ca/at-home/single-family/x5
will be discounted $500 from participating Nissan dealers with a purchase of a new Leaf between Jan 20 to March 21 .

Notice the new " Recommended by Nissan" logo . Apparently they formed a partnership with Nissan Canada.
Yet to be confirmed at the local dealership, but this a huge saving. Specs are further down the page.

I wouldn't mind replacing mine with a "smart" charger that you can view data via your mobile. I like that. Too bad there's no discount if you didn't buy a nissan :(
