We work with customers who purchase an electric vehicle to make sure we're meeting their needs and check if they may require modifications to the electric service feeding their home or business. We also continually assess how changes in customers' electric usage might impact our system.
Before purchasing an electic vehicle
If customers are interested in purchasing an electric vehicle, we encourage them to first check with the vehicle manufacturer and have their home or business inspected by a licensed electrician to ensure their property’s interior wiring and infrastructure can support any specific charging requirements.
