We’ll Help You Choose the Right Kind of EV Charging Station
Our team of electricians can help you not only install a new charging station, we can also help you pick the right one. There are Level 1 and Level 2 chargers, and the one you need will depend on the kind of electric car you have.
- Level 1 chargers use a standard 120-volt outlet and can add about 3 to 5 miles of range per hour of charging. They are typically used for smaller EVs, such as electric scooters or bikes.
- Level 2 chargers use a 240-volt outlet and can add about 25 to 50 miles of range per hour of charging. These are the types of chargers that are typically used for larger EVs, such as cars.
We’ll Help You Find the Best Place to Install Your Charging Station
Picking the right place to install an EV charging station is determining where to do so. You’ll want to choose a spot that is close to an existing electrical outlet and that has easy access for your car. You’ll also want to make sure that the area around the charger is well-lit and free of any potential hazards.
Pulling from years of experience with electrical installations, our EV charging station installation experts can help you determine the best location for your charger. They will also handle all the necessary wiring and installation to get your charger safely up and running.
We’ll Make Sure Your Home is Ready for an EV Charging Station
Perhaps most importantly, you need to make sure that your home’s electrical system can support a charging station. Level 1 chargers typically don’t pose any problems, but Level 2 chargers can require some modifications to your electrical system.
Our EV charging station contractors will be able to assess your home’s electrical system and determine if any changes need to be made. If so, they can handle all the necessary electrical upgrades to get your home or business ready for a charging station.
