Selecting a Vendor

The Alaska Energy Authority (AEA) offers a list of approved program vendors selling electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE or chargers) and management solutions, depending on whether participants select the EV Charge Owner option or the EV Charge Sponsor option. The full list is available to EV Charge Owners; a selected subset of these options will be available to EV Charge Sponsors.
 
Vendors will differ on charger models, software, costs, and manufacturer details. AEA does not offer preferences or recommendations for any of the approved program vendors, and program participants are responsible for determining the suitability of these products and services.
 
Below is our current list of qualified EVSE suppliers for you to reference. As the list is growing and changing, we encourage you to check here frequently for updates.
