EV Charging Station Installation

Types of EV Chargers

Level 1 EV Chargers

Level 1 chargers use a standard 120-volt outlet and are typically supplied with the purchase of an electric vehicle. These chargers are convenient for overnight charging but have a slower charging rate, adding about 4-5 miles of range per hour.

Level 2 EV Chargers

Level 2 chargers require a 240-volt outlet and provide a significantly faster charging rate compared to Level 1 chargers, adding approximately 25-30 miles of range per hour. These chargers are ideal for daily use, ensuring your vehicle is fully charged in a few hours.

DC Fast Chargers

DC Fast Chargers provide rapid charging capabilities, adding up to 100 miles of range in just 20-30 minutes. While these chargers are more commonly found in public charging stations due to their high cost and power requirements, some homeowners opt for DC Fast Chargers for maximum convenience and efficiency.

Essential Electrical Services for EV Charger Installation

Electrical System Assessment

Before installing an EV charger, it’s crucial to assess your home’s electrical system to ensure it can support the additional load. Our team thoroughly evaluates your existing wiring, circuit capacity, and electrical panel to determine the best installation approach.

Circuit and Panel Upgrades

EV chargers, especially Level 2 and DC Fast Chargers may require dedicated circuits and possibly an upgrade to your electrical panel to handle the increased electrical demand. Our electricians provide professional circuit installations and panel upgrades to ensure the safe and efficient operation of your EV charger.

Outlet Installation

For Level 1 and Level 2 chargers, we install the necessary 120-volt or 240-volt outlets in the most convenient location for charging your vehicle. Our team ensures all outlets are installed according to safety standards and local electrical codes.

Hardwired EV Charger Installation

For a more permanent and aesthetically pleasing solution, we offer hardwired EV charger installations. This involves directly connecting the charger to your home’s electrical system, eliminating the need for visible outlets and cords.

Permits and Code Compliance

Installing an EV charger may require obtaining permits and ensuring compliance with local electrical codes. Newman Electric handles all necessary permits and ensures that your installation meets all regulatory requirements, providing peace of mind and hassle-free service.

Smart Charger Integration

For enhanced convenience, we offer the installation of smart EV chargers that can be controlled remotely via smartphone apps. These chargers allow you to schedule charging times, monitor energy usage, and receive notifications about your vehicle’s charging status.

Electrical Safety Inspections

After completing the installation, we conduct a comprehensive electrical safety inspection to ensure everything is installed correctly and safely. Our inspections cover all aspects of your EV charging system, providing peace of mind that your new charger is safe and reliable.
