FAQ

Can my electrical wall panel support an EV charger?

If you’re looking to install an EV charger, you’re going to need an electrical panel in your home that has over 100A. This is unfortunately the case in most older homes, making it impossible to install the EV charger without updating your electrical panel. Your electrical panel needs to be upgraded to at least 200A, and fortunately, we can help you upgrade your electrical wall panel.

Can I upgrade my own wall panel?

For your safety, we recommend working with a certified professional instead of taking on your own electrical work. Without the right equipment, you could create your own fire hazard, leading to injuries / death. Consult with a certified electrician for professional advice first.

Which EV charger is right for me?

Not all EV chargers were created equal. The EV charger that’s right for you is dependent on the vehicle you drive. We can help you validate your decision, and help you select the charger that’s right for your home.

Do you supply EV chargers?

We are licensed partners and installation experts for a number of EVSE suppliers including FLO, ChargePoint, Sun Country Highway, Gescan and Tesla, to name a few. With our supplier relations, we can provide you with competitive wholesale pricing for your home or office.

Purchased your own EVSE? We can help you install it as well. Reach out to us and we'll help you with that.
