Its As Easy As Connecting Your Dryer To 240 Volt Power

The EV Chargers you buy to install in your home are very simple devices and the truth is that most of the charging happens inside the car. That makes installing electric car chargers as easy as running ~240 Volt 30AMP plugs to the garage.  Just like the plug for your dryer or stove – its that easy! 

EV Car Charger Installation Process

Site Survey

Residential car chargers can draw up to 30 amps at 240 volts! Your home’s electrical systems need to be assessed to determine if it is large enough to handle that amount of electrical load. We also need to check if with the electricity supplier, transformer capacity & for your home even while your car charges at full load.  Your charger requires your electrical panel to have a free spot to install a dedicated 2 pole circuit breaker.  If your home doesn’t meet the requirements electrical upgrades can be performed. 

Choosing An Installation Site

The location of the EV Charger is usually going to be inside the garage but mounting it outdoors is possible. When choosing the location consider the length of the charging cable and the location of the charging port on the car.  Factors like the location of your electrical panel might help you decide where to install the EV car charger. 

Mounting Charging Hardware & Plug

Once we have run the 240volt outlet to the desired location we mount the charging hardware and cable storage rack.  If you already have 240-volt electrical service in your garage this step can be completed by most homeowners!  It can get tricky mounting to masonry or concrete so we can always help with professional installations with a seamless finish.  Even with convenient 240 volt service,  always have your site survey completed by a licensed electrician.
