Tesla Certified Installer in Vancouver
EV charging stations and electric vehicles are becoming more and more common on roads in Vancouver and throughout the rest of Canada. These EV cars provide drivers with a cleaner alternative to traditional gas-powered combustion vehicles. Unlike a gas-powered car, electric vehicles require no fossil fuels to function, meaning electric car owners never have to spend money refuelling their cars with expensive gasoline. They also get the added benefit of a drastic reduction in their carbon footprint, which goes toward reducing the overall level of harmful carbon dioxide pollutants in our planet’s air.
There are many benefits to owning an electric vehicle, however there are a few things to keep in mind when it comes to keeping your car charged. Every electrical car on the road today runs on a battery that needs to be recharged on a regular basis. Just like a gas-powered car needs to be regularly refuelled at a gas station, an electric vehicle requires a power charging station to keep its batteries charged and the engine running. These charging stations, known as EVSEs (Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment) are usually included with the lease or purchase of an electric car by the dealership or car manufacturer, but there are many cases where electric car owners must find and install their own charging stations. If you need a charging station for your electric car, be sure to contact the EVSE experts at Rikur Energy.

Excellent communication, very professional and capable staff. Service was performed promptly and as expected. Aaron was very curtious in setting up the time and providing pertinent information. I'm considering acquiring their solar panels as my next project. Thank you Aaron!
