Electricians in Canada and the United States use DCC to install electric vehicle charging in condos and apartments.

DCC-9, manufactured by Thermolec, is an EV Energy Management System specifically designed to allow the connection of a charger to the main feeder of the panel without affecting the load calculation.

Ideal for the installation of chargers in multi-residential buildings, such as apartments or condominiums.

Exterior installations will require DCC-9-3R.

How it works:
DCC-9 allows the connection of any EV charger to a fully loaded panel by managing the energy available at any given time.

  1. DCC does a real-time reading of the total power consumption of a home or condo electrical panel;
  2. It detects when the total power consumption of the main circuit breaker exceeds 80% and temporarily de-energizes the charger.
  3. When DCC detects that the total power consumption of the electrical panel is less than 80% for more than 15 minutes it automatically re-energizes the charger.

DCC will only allow power to be delivered to the EV charger if the total demand of the panel is below its full capacity.

DCC-9 and DCC-10 are UL Listed and CSA US certified.
