Electrical Vehicle Charging Station Installation

Electrical Vehicle Charging Station Installation in Port St. Lucie

Helping Homeowners Set Up Their EV Charging Stations

Electrical vehicles (EV) are more popular now than ever. With over 95% of electric car charging being performed at home in the United States, the need for EV charge installation has dramatically increased. As an EV charger relies on a large quantity of power to function, it is best to speak with an electrician to get one installed. There is the possibility that your electrical system may need to be updated to support this installation and a qualified electrician can get you set up and ready to charge.

What Is an EV Charging Station?

An EV has a battery that allows it to operate. This battery is dependent on electricity to function properly. If there is no electricity in the EV’s battery pack, the car cannot move. Therefore, you need to replenish that electricity by charging the car’s battery. An EV charging station converts the electrical current from your house into a current flow the EV battery can accept and use.

Installing an EV Charger

Do not attempt to install an EV charger by yourself as it requires the skill, knowledge, and tools of an experienced electrician. An electrician will also be able to determine if you will need to upgrade the electrical service in your residence before installing the EV charger.

After finishing their calculations to see if your residence can support an EV charger, an electrician will then determine if your home has a 100amp service, 200amp service, or something higher or lower than that amount. If your home has a 100amp service, it is unlikely that an EV charger will work. In the event this happens, your home will require an electrical service upgrade to accommodate the addition of a charging station.

What Is an EVSE Charger?

EVSE chargers supply electric energy to recharge electric vehicles. There are three levels, which are:

Level 1 charger

While the Level 1 charger requires no installation, it charges vehicle batteries very slowly. Level 1 EVSE chargers are best suited for overnight use and can take 20 hours or more to fully charge your vehicle’s battery.

Level 2 charger

This more advanced EVSE charger requires its own dedicated 240-volt circuit, which needs to be professionally installed in your garage. Level 2 chargers work much faster, fully charging an EV in about three hours.

Level 3 charger

This is the standalone device you see at public charging stations at the grocery store or office parking lot. It can add 160 miles of driving range to an EV’s batteries in about half an hour. However, due to its industrial-level power draw they are unavailable to homeowners. If you own or work at an industrial building, it is possible to get a Level 3 charger installed there.

We can help you determine which type of EVSE charger is right for you.
