EV Chargers for Residential Locations

Deciding to purchase an EV home charging system is easier and more affordable than you may think!

Deciding to purchase an EV home charging system is easier and more affordable than you may think! Many grants, tax credits, and rebates are now available. Check with your local government and utility company to see what incentives you may qualify for. Having an EV Charger at home reduces the cost of charging your car by charging over night when rates are lowest. While Charging Stations will charge a fee to use their chargers, you’ll only be paying for the electricity used. Home chargers are much faster and help get the most life out of your battery.

What type of Charger should I get? Here's what to keep in mind!

How fast you want to Charge?

Charging speeds will differ based on your electrical current, the EV’s Range, driving style. For example, if you have a long commute you may benefit from a faster charge. Many EVs can take in 32 amps which will give you around 25 miles per hour of charging. If you are looking for higher mileage, a faster 50-amp charger can give you around 37 miles per hour of charge

How much room is there on your electrical panel?

Keep in mind when choosing a charger, that the amperage level works with your home’s available electrical capacity and your car. You can check how many amps you have available by checking your electrical panel, look to see if you have any unused circuit breakers. If the panel is full or nearly full you may need to upgrade your electrical service. Talk with us, we can help!

Where will the charger be located?

If possible, you will want to place your charger close to the electrical panel. Conduit may need to be run from the charger to your panel and lost of conduit can be expensive. Depending on where you park, you can purchase a charger rated for outdoor use.

How much will it cost?

The average cost of home EV Chargers rage from $500 to $900 (not including the installation) which is about half of what other drivers will pay for gas in a year. It is likely that you will keep your charger for many years. It is worth protecting your investment by choosing a charger that has a backed warranty and passed safety tests.
