Getting the right charger for you electric vehicle is important, and there is more to getting the right charger than meets the eye. The term charging station is a bit of a misnomer when it comes to electric vehicles. The actual components to charge the car are built into the electric vehicle (EV). What the charger does is provide a method by which you can tap into your home's electrical grid to provide electricity, called the Electric Vehicle Service Equipment (EVSE).
There are a number of methods by which to provide the charge, from slow but common level 1 charging stations to the extremely fast but uncommon DC Fast charging stations. Depending on your power needs you may want to examine the charging options you have available to you. Discuss what is best for your vehicle with your electrician.
Most electric car companies recommend a 240v circuit as it charges your car more efficiently in less amount of time. These chargers are generally referred to as level 2 EVSE's (or Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment). Before we install your charger we will ensure your home has enough amperage for your charging needs.
It is possible your house will not have the proper power needs to accommodate a charging station for your electric vehicle. If this is the case ask your electrician about what can be done to upgrade your electrical capacity in your home and how to go about doing this.
