The Benefits of a Home Electric Vehicle EV Charging Station

Installing an electric vehicle charging station can be a great way to make your electric car more convenient while also upgrading your home and increasing its value. Level 1 chargers can plug directly in to your home’s outlets, but they may also take up to 22 hours or more to fully charge a vehicle. Our professionals can install Level 2 chargers, which will fully charge your car up to 5 times faster, making travel much more convenient.

Level 2 chargers will most likely require some adjustments to your home’s electrical wiring, but our professionals will be able to take care of this and every other aspect of the job. We’ll work with you to select the perfect charging station for your home and your vehicle, and we’ll guarantee your satisfaction with our work and all of the products we provide.

Even though electric vehicles can be charged using a normal outlet with a dedicated circuit, a Level 2 charging station offers a number of benefits.

  • Faster charge time: A Level 2 charging station can charge an electric vehicle 3 to 7 times faster than a Level 1 (regular 120V outlet). Instead of 8 to 20 hours, an EV can be charged in 3 to 8 hours.
  • Incentive programs: Some programs provide opportunities to save money through rebates and tax incentives for EV charging technology.
  • Added features: Some Level 2 chargers have added features like smartphone accessibility, timers and reminders, touch displays, tracking usage, and WiFi connectivity.

FAQs: Electric Vehicle EV Chargers

With lots of manufacturers and models to choose from, there are a number of options to consider. Whatever you decide, only select a charger that is safety certified, and consider having it installed by an electrician who has a ESA certification.

Electric vehicles (EVs) require a connection to an electrical system to charge. There are three different methods.

The 3 levels of chargers

Level 1 Chargers;

  • Uses a connection to a standard 120-volt outlet
  • Charges 8 km per hour
  • Takes 12 to 20 hours to fully charge a battery EV (6 to 12 hours for a plug-in hybrid)
  • Used mostly in homes

Level 2 Chargers;

  • Uses a connection to a 240-volt outlet, like those used by ovens and clothes dryers
  • Charges 30 km per hour
  • Takes 6 to 14 hours to fully charge a battery EV (4 to 8 hours for a plug-in hybrid)
  • Used in homes, businesses, and common areas

Level 3 Chargers;

  • Uses a direct current connection to an electrical system
  • Charges 100 km per 30 minutes or 80% charge at 50 kW (varies by vehicle type)
  • Takes 1 to 4 hours to fully charge a battery EV (15 minutes to 3 hours for a plug-in hybrid)
  • Used mostly in businesses and common areas
  • How much current (amperage) will the electric vehicle electric vehicle EV need to charge?
  • What is the capacity of your existing electrical service panel (e.g., 100-Amp, 200-Amp, etc.)? Note that a 400-Amp service panel is considered an “uncommon upgrade”.
  • Is there a 240-volt circuit installed and available to be used?
  • Is there room in the electrical service panel for a new 240-volt circuit breaker (it must be double-pole)?
  • Where will the charging station be installed?

Hiring a certified electrician to install your electric vehicle EV charger will make the whole process much easier. They’ll explain what you’ll need to get started and how to get everything approved.

Though all electric vehicle EVs use the same standard plugs for Level 1 and Level 2 charging, standards for the DC charging may vary among manufacturers and regions.

Yes they are safe, We all know that water conducts electricity, so shouldn’t we be concerned that charging your car in the rain is like swimming in a lake during a thunderstorm?  Fortunately, electric car chargers are weatherproof and are specifically designed to protect both the car and its humans from electrical shock.  Electric vehicle chargers are rigorously tested and have to meet stringent safety standards. Waterproofing electrical connectors is pretty routine. They even have to pass fire hose testing where the connector is subjected to high pressure spray.

When it comes to electric vehicles, the converter is built inside the car. It’s called the “onboard charger” though it really is a converter. It converts power from AC to DC and then feeds it into the car’s battery. This is the most common charging method for electric vehicles today and most chargers use AC power.

The time it takes to charge an electric car can be as little as 30 minutes or more than 12 hours. This depends on the size of the battery and the speed of the charging point.

  • A typical electric car (60kWh battery) takes just under 8 hours to charge from empty-to-full with a 7kW charging point.
  • Most drivers top up charge rather than waiting for their battery to recharge from empty-to-full.
  • For many electric cars, you can add up to 100 miles of range in ~35 minutes with a 50kW rapid charger.
  • The bigger your car’s battery and the slower the charging point, the longer it takes to charge from empty to full.

All single-phase receptacles installed for the connection of electric vehicle charging that are rated 150 volts to ground or less, and 50 amperes or less shall have ground-fault circuit-interrupter protection for personnel. That’s a strange way to word it.

Electric vehicle EV chargers are proven to increase property value, attract customers to retail locations, and improve goodwill between any building and its tenants/visitors.

Technically you can connect your Tesla to a standard 110v plug receptacle with the free adapter that comes with the car. But you can only charge slowly–at about 3 miles of range per hour parked. … It will take up to 4 full days to fully recharge an empty Tesla car battery using a regular wall outlet.

In general, you should not charge your electric car every night. It isn’t necessary in most cases. The practice of charging an electric vehicle every night can shorten the lifespan of the car’s battery pack.

Our electrician can obtain any necessary permits for you whether you’re in the city or in the suburbs. Residential PEV chargers can run off of 120-volt or 240-volt power, depending on the styles of the chargers. … Level 1 electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) are installed as an outlet or a charging station.

Charging the car fully does not degrade the battery unless you were to keep it at 100% all the time. So, where possible, only charge to 100% if you really need it.
