Installing Your Charger

Charging stations have similar electrical requirements to a laundry dryer (240 Volts/30 Amps) and any licensed electrician can install them.

The cost to install a charging station varies dramatically from case to case. The links below can help you find a licensed electrician in your area. We recommend getting three quotes.

Although informing your electricity provider that you are installing a charging station is not mandatory, we do recommend it. This will help them monitor the grid impact of electric vehicles and upgrade local transformers if necessary. If you do not know who you’re electricity provider is, ask us at: info@plugndrive.ca.
