The Right Charger for Your Vehicle
The plug that comes with your vehicle can work in any regular outlet but can take 24 hours or more to fully charge your battery. Upgrading to a Level 2 charger is best for fast, efficient charging. Having your own electric car charger allows you to charge your vehicle in the comfort of your own home. This is easier and less expensive than using public charging stations.
When choosing an EV car charging station, consider:
- Charger type: A Level 2 charging station is best suited for residential properties. Level 3 chargers are used in commercial applications and public charging stations.
- Inside or outside charging: Where will your vehicle be charged? The charging station can be mounted to the wall of the garage to protect it from the elements. However, if you don’t have a garage, there are charging stations that are rated for outdoor use.
- 240v outlet: A Level 2 charging station requires a dedicated 240v outlet. If you don’t have one available, your electrician can install it for you.
- Electrical upgrades: Older panels may not have room for expansion to add a 240v circuit. In this case, upgrading your electrical panel may be required.
The cost of EV charger installation will vary, depending on the type of charger, distance from the panel to the place where it will be installed, and any other electrical system upgrades that may be needed. Your electrician can discuss the cost and provide a free estimate.
Rebates and tax incentives are offered for installing electric vehicle charging stations. Currently, the federal government is offering a tax credit for the installation of electric car charging stations. You can receive a 30% tax credit for installing a home charging station.
EV Charger Installation & Repair
Licensed electricians will make sure your new electric car charger is properly installed and meets all current code requirements. In addition to the installation of the charging station, your electrician can advise you of any upgrades that may be needed for safe, efficient charging. After the installation is complete, your electrician can help you keep it working reliably with professional repair and service.
