Ampacity Electric can install your Level 1 and Level 2 Electric Car Charger.
Level 1 Electric Vehicle Charging Stations are the small mobile chargers that come with the car when you purchase it at the dealership. They require a dedicated 120 volt circuit and the charging times can take up to 20 hours to fully charge your electric vehicle.
Level 2 Electric Vehicle Charging Stations will charger your vehicle much faster. A Level 2 residential home charging station, also called Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE), is powered by a 240 volt dedicated circuit from your electric panel. Depending on which Electric Vehicle and type of charger you have charging times will vary from 2 to 8 hours.
Before every installation Ampacity Electric will complete a load calculation of your electrical system to ensure a safe and professional installation. Some homes are not equipped to handle the additional power needed to operate an electric vehicle charger and may require a new electrical service or panel upgrade depending on how many car chargers or what type of charger is required for your personal needs. For more information on this please visit our Electrical Service Upgrade page.
Your Electric Car features rechargeable batteries that supply energy to the vehicle. When you drive, the vehicle utilizes the battery's stored electricity. The charging dock helps to refill your battery with electricity, similar to filling your current car with gas.
The EVSE installation is usually on your garage wall near where you park your car. We can also install it on the outside of your house. The cord ranges from 12-24 feet in length.
Only a professional, licensed electrician should perform your electric vehicle charger installation to ensure that it works properly and meets all applicable code requirements. Ampacity Electric can do this for you.
