Though charging station installations are relatively simple, we recommend hiring a certified electrician to ensure it is done safely and correctly. For those provinces with government incentives, (British Columbia, Ontario, Québec), having the installation done by a certified electrician is mandatory to qualify for the incentive. The links below can help you find an electrician in your area:
British Columbia: Electrical Contractors Association of British Columbia
Manitoba: Electrical Association of Manitoba
New Brunswick: Electrical Contractors Association of New Brunswick
Nova Scotia: No industry association. Contact Nova Scotia Power.
Newfoundland: No industry association. Contact Newfoundland Power.
Ontario: Electrical Safety Authority
Saskatchewan: Electrical Contractors Association of Saskatchewan
Although informing your local electricity provider is not mandatory, we do recommend it. This will help your utility monitor the grid impact of electric vehicle charging and upgrade local transformers if necessary.
