EV Charging Solutions
With electric vehicle (EV) adoption rates increasing each year and Canada’s goal for all car and passenger truck sales to be zero-emission vehicles by 2035, EV charging at workplaces and residences will become the new standard.
However depending on building use and potential demand from EV users, building owners may consider several different charger system configurations. It is important to consult with a professional engineering firm to determine the building’s spare capacity and potential future demand and charging needs. With years of experience in energy projects and retrofits, MES offers the following services to help future-proof your building get started on a smart, scalable EV charging system:
We work with you to determine the building's spare electrical capacity, gauge tenant interest and determine the number of chargers needed now. We then select the best complete solution in the market that works best for your particular building and your property management team, tenants; needs, future scalability, and most financially competitive. A feasibility study will be delivered including:
Building electrical load study
EV charging stations options with comparison of various configurations
Power Management strategy to optimize available power required by EV charging system
Energy Management strategy to minimize cost of power required by EV charging system
Preliminary financial analysis including capital cost and maintenance cost
User billing system options
We believe our clients should have the freedom to choose the construction means that works best for them and their organizations' structure. As a vertically integrated company, we offer our clients the choice of a consulting service only contract, or EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) to ensure successful delivery of the project.
Natural Resources Canada funds the Zero Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program (ZEVIP). The program covers up to 50% of the cost of EV charging stations, infrastructure, and installation, up to $5,000 per Level-2 connector for:
Workplaces (commercial or industrial buildings)
Multi-Unit Residential Buildings
And many others
ZEVIP applicants may face challenges with this program as the funds are limited, applications are processed on a first come first serve bases, and within specific intake windows (The next window is planned for 2023). We simplify the process and apply on your behalf to start your project as soon as your application is approved.
