How you get around makes up a big part of your personal footprint. Our custom residential charging stations make EV easy and affordable.
Let’s get started. Call us up or fill out the contact form to book your assessment. We’ll answer your questions and get a better understanding of your needs.
Our team prepares the necessary permit documents on your behalf. We then order the required equipment and materials, keeping you updated every step of the way. Once everything is ready, our certified electricians start the installation.
Upon completion, we complete a quality check ensuring the installation meets the required installation standards. We then complete an electrical inspection with ESA to close out the related electrical permit.
We energize your equipment and provide a tutorial on how to safely operate it. You’re now ready to start charging at home!
Level 1 is charging at home with a 120-volt circuit (a standard electrical outlet). This typicall provides 5-8 kilometers of charging per hour.
Level 2 is charging with a 240-volt circuit similar to what you would connect your stove or dryer to. This requires professional installation of either a NEMA 14-50 outlet or a hardwired charging station and can typically refill your EV battery overnight.
Level 3 or Direct Current Fast Charging (DCFC) uses a 480-volt DC circuit, and typically provides about an 80% charge in just 30 minutes. These charging stations are generally found at commercial sites such as shopping centers or highway rest areas and are not suitable in residential applications.
A hardwired Level 2 charger is recommended over plug-in installation. The main reason is that many local electrical inspectors require the use of a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupting (GFCI) breaker when adding the 240-volt circuit needed for a NEMA 14-50 plug. However, most Level 2 chargers come equipped with an internal GFCI. Having two GFCIs on the same circuit can lead to nuisance tripping. This causes a major inconvenience for EV drivers because the GFCI must then be manually reset at the main electrical panel.
Rebates and incentives are constantly changing. Please reach out to us when you are ready to purchase.
Each installation is unique and varies among customers. The national average ranges from $500- $2,500, and is influenced by the factors such as the age of your home, the location of your charging station, utility involvement, permitting costs, etc.
The best way to answer this question is to provide our office with information on your home electrical panel. You can upload pictures on our web site. We have qualified electrician to evaluate your home including doing a load calculation.
Most car batteries can be fully recharged using a Level 2 home charging station in as little as 2-3 hours but from empty this may take hours.
There are hundreds of charging stations available on the market today. You rely on us, our knowledge, and expertise to recommend an appropriate charger. You have just spent thousands of dollars on an EV, cutting corners on your EV charger is not something you should do. Consider quality, speed, reliability, service, and obsolescence.
Licensed electricians are qualified to install a charger. However, chargers and EVs (Electric Vehicles) are new, and experience in this area is important for an effective installation. Consider that when it comes to electric appliances, car chargers are unique. When you plug in your car the charger will be drawing the maximum power available for many hours. This type of continuous load requires a specialized design to provide optimal performance and long-term reliability.
90% of charging happens at home. Home chargers offer extremely fast charging times, up to 10 times faster, as opposed to a regular 120V outlet. Freedom to drive anywhere at any time without being concerned with finding a commercial charging station. Imagine the safety, reliability, and convenience of having your own personal fueling station in your garage.
