240 Volt EV Charger Installations
All level 2 EV chargers will need to be installed by a licensed electrician. These chargers run on 240 volts of electricity, similar to what an electric dryer runs on. However, many of these units will need to be hardwired into your home’s electrical system.
Our licensed electrician will ensure your electrical panel can handle the EV charger before installation. In many cases, there is no need for a homeowner to upgrade their electrical panel unless you have an older home with outdated wiring. After we complete the work, we will help explain your system and connect it to WiFi for you. (if available)
