EV CHARGER INSTALLATION
As the capabilities and popularity of electric vehicles have increased, so has the demand for electric vehicle charging stations. Identifying your charging needs is an important step in owning an electric vehicle because charging requirements among EV owners vary due to driving range, driving habits, daily routine, and availability of public charging stations. We have electricians on staff who are certified installers for electric vehicles such as BMW, GM, Jaguar, LandRover, Tesla, Volvo, and more.
Types of EV Chargers
Level 1 Charger
Most electric cars come with a standard charging cord that has a three-prong plug and connects to a conventional 120-volt outlet. This way of charging is acceptable for some, but it is a slow charge and can take up to 8-12 hours to fully charge the battery.
Level 2 Charger
This charger is by far the most popular choice because its efficient and cuts charging time in half. Because a dedicated 240-volt circuit is required for operation, a licensed electrician is needed for installation. Level 2 chargers can add approximately 70 miles of range for each hour of charging and can fully charge your electric vehicle in 4-6 hours.
Level 3 Charger
These EV chargers are used for public charging stations because they require at least a 480-volt power source. A licensed electrician is required for Level 3 EV charging stations. These chargers are incredibly fast and can provide 150 miles of driving range per hour of charging. A full charge takes approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes depending on the vehicle.
Installation of an EV charging station should only be performed by a licensed electrician for the safety of your family, your home, and your vehicle.
