DCC Load Management with EV Charger Install
An electrical calculation has determined that your electrical service cannot accommodate a new EV Charger Load, we always recommend a service upgrade for detached homes and load management systems for non-detached homes.
How it works:
The load management system will monitor your electrical panel’s total power. Once 80% of your panel capacity has been met the DCC will disconnect your EV Charger from the panel. The charger will be reconnected once the value has dropped below 80% for approx 15mins.
Install package prices start from $2900 plus tax, and electrical permit costs vary. Additional charges that are not included in the electrical scope – drywall/paint repair, roof repair, building envelope repair, asbestos testing/abatement (required for homes built prior to 1990). Price is subject to a site visit.
Step 1: Prepare Budget:
Send the following information and images to [email protected]:
- Information: full home address, square footage, location of electrical panel
- Following Images: Electrical Panels in the home (Clear images of the labeling on the panel)
Appliance list, type of heating in the home, number of electric stoves, hot tubs, etc.
Step 2: On-Site Visit
- Once requested information and images have been sent to us, our team will provide a budget via email.
