Electric cars, or “EV”s, are a growing part of the automotive landscape, and we get more calls every week for the special circuits it takes to charge an EV quickly. Home charging is headed towards becoming the largest part of our business. In 2016 we participated in Tesla’s special training and evaluation process, and became a “Tesla Certified Electrical Contractor,” and were made “Recommended” installers for Clipper Creek. In 2017 we became “Certified Installers” for ChargePoint, and more will be coming soon.
The big concern with EVs? No matter what brand of car or charger, the charging circuits required can put major stress on the home’s wiring and service panel, and some homes are more ready than others. Tesla wants to make sure car buyers have the best possible experience. With their training and certification program they’re being pro-active, and setting the standard for quality charger installations.
If there’s an EV in your near future, it’s smart to call us before the car arrives — or now, if the car is here already — to review the type of charging system you’re considering, assess your home for any possible wiring issues, and make sure you’re ready with the right power and a safe installation.
