EV Charger Installation

Project Overview

This project highlights the process from initial request to final inspection by the
Electrical Safety Authority (ESA) for a residential EV charger installation.

1. Initial Request

  • The homeowner contacted our team to inquire about installing a Level 2 EV charger in their garage. The initial request included the type of vehicle, preferred charging speed, and location specifics.

2. Follow-Up Site Visit

  • A site visit was scheduled to assess the existing electrical infrastructure and determine the optimal location for the EV charger.
  • During the visit, our technician reviewed the electrical panel capacity, proximity to the parking area, and any potential obstacles that could affect the installation.
  • Historical Hydro usage data is reviewed to ensure electrical capacity for new EV charger.

3. Provide Quotation

  • Based on the site visit, a detailed quotation was prepared. This included the cost of the EV charger, any required electrical upgrades or modifications, labor, and any additional materials.

4. Schedule Work

  • Upon approval of the quotation by the homeowner, the installation work was scheduled. Coordination with the homeowner ensured minimal disruption and convenient timing.
  • Necessary permits were obtained, and materials were ordered to ensure a smooth installation process.

5. Installation Date

  • On the scheduled installation date, our team arrived promptly and began the installation process.
  • Installation involved running new wiring from the electrical panel to the charger location, mounting the charger, and connecting it to the electrical system.
  • The team ensured that all work was performed according to local electrical codes and standards.

6. Final ESA Inspection

  • After the installation was completed, an inspection by the Electrical Safety Authority (ESA) was scheduled.
  • The inspector reviewed the installation to ensure it met all safety and regulatory standards.
  • Upon successful inspection, the ESA issued a Certificate of Acceptance, confirming the installation was safe and compliant.

The Outcome

The installation of the Level 2 EV charger was completed efficiently and met all safety and regulatory standards. The homeowner can now charge their EV conveniently at home. The project underscores the importance of thorough planning and compliance with electrical codes to ensure a safe and effective home charging solution.

Evolta did all of the electrical work for by basement reno, as well as some additional work I needed done in other areas of my house. They showed up on time, were very professional, clean, answered all my questions promptly and did great work! I'll definitely be calling them back for any future electrical work I need done.

“I first became aware of Evolta while attending a recent home show. Gave an excellent first impression and were very helpful to answer any and all questions I had. Everyone was excellent and very professional to deal with throughout every step of the way in regards to an EV charger installation I needed done. I would highly recommend them and have already done so to others.”

I used Evolta for an EV charger installation at my office - a Wallbox charger. They were helpful, professional, and the job looks good. I am looking forward to using them again.
