    I had a 2012 Volt until Nov 16, 2016. I now drive a 2016 Volt. I typically put on a lot more than 20,000 kms per year. 90% of the time I charge at night/ off peak but sometimes I have to charge up mid day as well.

    Switching from 2 gas cars to an EV and a hybrid (Tesla Model S and Prius V), my electricity costs went up about $70/month, but my gasoline costs went down by $300/month.

    I own a Kia Soul EV 2016. I believe I read that Ontario is/will provide a refund for electricity used provided the vehicle is charged overnight on Low Demand. Is this correct? I also understood it to take effect from either 2016 or 2017 until 2021? Is this correct? I live in a retirement home that is providing my electricity at no cost so far. We are anticipating this Ontario rebate program. How will it work? I drove 6000 Kms. in the first year of operation. By the way, I love the car and the ease of operation.,
