What About EV Charging Stations?

There are a lot of EVs on the road today. According to an estimate, more than half the cars sold in Canada will be electric by 2030. Recently I’ve been hearing a lot of scary stories about people not properly installing charging stations in their homes. It’s important to understand the different types of EV charging stations available, what’s required to install one at home, and electrical safety tips to avoid a potential fire hazard.

In this podcast episode, I’m joined by James Fraser, General Manager at The Electrical Safety Authority (ESA) as we talk about everything you need to know about EV charging stations and installing one at home SAFELY.
