Planning for EV Charger Installation
The first step in planning for an EV charger installation is an evaluation of the electrical system and load calculation. The inspection should be performed by a properly licensed and qualified electrician. We will assess the overall condition and capacity of your electrical system and conduct an existing load calculation according to the requirements of the National Electric Code (NEC) to determine the available capacity.
Once we have evaluated your electrical system, the next step is to choose the location for your electric car charger installation in Rochester. The distance and path from the panel to the outlet location are important. In the case of a detached garage, upsizing the lines that feed the garage may be necessary to supply power to the charger.
Selecting the Right EV Charger
When you purchase an electric vehicle, you will need to make decisions about how you will charge it. Public charging stations are not always convenient or cost-effective. There are a few different options available for EV charging stations for residential and commercial applications.
Electric car charger options include:
- Level 1 – This is the type of charger that is included with electric vehicles. Level 1 chargers require a 120 volt, 20 amps circuit, which is the typical residential electric service. It takes up to 24 hours to fully charge a battery on this type of charger.
- Level 2 – Most homeowners choose a Level 2 charger for faster charging. Installation requires a dedicated 240 volt, 20 to 80 amps circuit. It takes about 6 to 8 hours to fully charge an electric vehicle on a Level 2 charger.
- Level 3 – These charging stations are used for commercial applications. They are the fastest and capable of fully charging a vehicle in 25 minutes to 2.5 hours.
The best charger for electric vehicles depends on the requirements of your vehicle and the home electrical service capacity. We can evaluate your needs, go over your options, answer any questions, and help you select the right charger and outlet for your Rochester electric car charger installation.
