EV Charger Installation
It is almost impossible to go for a drive these days without seeing an electric vehicle on the road. Tesla, the largest electric car manufacturer, produced 900,400 new electric vehicles in 2021 alone. Other companies such as Rivian and NIO are also creating a note-worthy number of new vehicles. Here at Blue Line Electric we understand the increasing need of support for electric vehicles and are here for it!
Why EV charging is needed
Electric Vehicles (EVs) are booming in popularity due to the cost savings on fuel and maintenance costs, not to mention the incredibly clean emissions profile. However, these cars require specialized charging needs that regular outlets are simply unable to provide. If you own an electric vehicle, you can stop driving around town looking for public EV chargers and waiting forever for your electric vehicle to charge in a low-powered outlet! We can come to your home or business and install a high-powered EV charger right on your property! An EV charger is an excellent way to maximize battery life and has many advantages over a standard power outlet. EV chargers can charge faster and more efficiently than regular outlets, allowing for quicker recharge times for busy schedules. They also offer added safety benefits by being completely sealed away from the elements and providing protection from any overloads that may occur from heavier electrical demands. Installing a dedicated EV charger is well worth the investment if you own an electric vehicle – it’s an excellent way to save time and money while ensuring your car stays safely charged up.
How long does it take to charge an electric vehicle?
Charging an EV with an EV charger can take from a few hours to a 24-hour period, depending on the capabilities of each charger and the type and condition of your electric vehicle. Level 1 chargers are capable of delivering approximately 3 miles per hour of charge, while Level 2 chargers offer up to 25 miles per hour.
This means that you must factor in the capacity of your charger as well as the energy consumption rating for your electric vehicle when considering how long it will take to fully charge. Fortunately, modern EV chargers come equipped with real-time monitoring so you can check the status right from your device, so you know exactly how long it’s going to take regardless of your conditions.
Cost of having an EV charger installed
The cost of having an EV charger installed varies depending on the kind of charger, the installation location, and other factors. Our installation process often involves several components such as obtaining necessary permits, routing electricity to the EV charging station, and ensuring safe operation. The total cost can range from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars if your electric panel needs to be upgraded. It’s recommended that homeowners consult with one of our qualified electricians to estimate the cost before proceeding with installation. Sometimes you may find incentives from your local municipality or state government that can significantly reduce the overall expense. All in all, having an EV charger installed is easier than ever thanks to advances in technology aimed at encouraging more people to make the switch to electric vehicles.
