Chevrolet Volt Home Charging Unit Priced at $490

October 12, 2010

DETROIT - Chevrolet has an agreement with a supplier to offer Chevrolet Volt owners one of the most affordable 240V home charging units for less than $500. Priced at $490 before installation, Chevrolet's "Voltec" 240V home charging unit is one of several 240V home charging units that will be offered for sale by SPX Service Solutions, a national provider of home charging installation services and equipment.

The Voltec 240V home charging unit can charge the Volt's battery from depleted to charged in about four hours, compared to 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 to Chevrolet's Voltec unit, SPX will sell a variety of home charging stations and manage all aspects of installation for Volt owners, including the home survey, installation, permitting, Department of Energy and utility coordination, and identification of available programs and incentives for reduced charging rates.
