EV Charging Station Installation in Akron and Northeast Ohio
Electric cars are not only environmentally friendly, but they are also a convenient option as they can be charged at home — that means no time wasted having to run to the gas station when your car is low on fuel! Having an electric vehicle charging station installed at your home is no small feat and should be handled with extreme care and attention to detail. The electricians at Blind & Sons have just what it takes to assess your home, determine its charging needs, and properly install the station that will best meet your demands.
City Requirements for EV Charging Station Installation
Typically, homeowners will be required to ensure their home is capable of handling the electrical load of an EV charger. Additionally, they will need to outline where the charging station will be placed, including how many spaces will be needed for the charger.
The specs of the particular charger to be used, including the model and voltage, must be documented as well. All maintenance and repairs must coincide with the requirements of the original manufacturer. Inspections may be held in order to ensure all equipment is operating properly and meets all of the necessary codes.
Levels of Electric Vehicle Charging
Level 1 chargers utilize standard outlets, so no additional wiring is necessary. However, level 2 chargers may require an electrical panel upgrade if you live in an older home.
The charging levels for electric vehicles include:
- Level 1 charger: 120-volt (standard home outlet)
- Level 2 charger: 240-volt (voltage used by a dryer)
- Level 3 charger: High-speed, direct current charging
