Next steps after you have chosen a charger type
- Have it installed by a qualified electrician. For a list of qualified electricians in the Edmonton area, visit the
Electrical Contractors Association of Alberta.
- Plug in. We recommend charging your vehicles overnight so the electrical system of your home isn't taxed when you get home from work and begin making dinner and running other heavy electricity use appliances.
Although it's not required, we do recommend that you let us know you are installing a charging station. This helps us monitor the impact of electric vehicles on the electrical system in your neighbourhood and upgrade equipment like transformers, when needed.
