Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) Connection

As of May 27, 2024, there is a standard Ontario Energy Board procedure that all electricity distributors in the province must use for non-residential customers seeking to install electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) for EV charging infrastructure.

The procedure is applicable to:

  • non-residential customer applications including Level 2 and Level 3 charging stations, such as publicly accessible direct current fast charging stations, workplace charging, charging stations used for commercial EV fleets and charging installations for multi-unit residential or commercial buildings, where the EV chargers are owned or operated by the building owner or a third-party charging provider; and
  • the primary purpose of the new or expanded connection must be specific to an EV charging station.

The procedures that all electricity distributors must follow for installing and connecting new EV charging infrastructure includes standardized forms, timelines, and information requirements which are included in the Electric Vehicle Charging Connection Procedure (EVCCP) below.

Customers considering an EVSE project, may also choose to request a preliminary consultation by completing the EV Preliminary Consultation Information Request (EVPCIR) form below and submitting it to the distributor.

A preliminary consultation is an optional step for customers, who may instead choose to proceed directly to a connection request.
