Ampacity Electric can install your Level 1 or Level 2 Electric Car Charger as well as a 50 Amp Outlet for your cars Mobile Connector cord.
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 30 hours to fully charge your electric vehicle.
Level 2 Electric Vehicle Charging Stations will charge 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. Charging times will vary from 2 to 8 hours, depending on which Electric Vehicle and type of charger you use. The most common Level 2 chargers are the Tesla Wall Connector, the ChargePoint Home Flex, and the JuiceBox Smart Charging Station.
A 50 Amp 14-50 or 6-50 Receptacle will allow you to charge your car using the 50 Amp Mobile Connector cord that comes with many new EV's.
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 a electric vehicle supply equipment 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.
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 8-24 feet in length, depending on the brand and model.
The state of New Jersey is currently offering a $166 million Electric Vehicle (EV) Rebate Program to build New Jersey's EV charging infrastructure. Homeowners in PSE&G, JCP&L, and other NJ power company territories are eligible for a rebate of the EV Charger installation cost up to $1,500. 90% of our installations are under this amount, which means you pay nothing. The rebate not only covers the electrical material and labor, but also the warranty, permit fees, and paperwork. The rebate process is very easy and if you have any questions we are always there to help.
No! We are NOT a Tesla Certified Installer, Certified ChargePoint Installer, or Qmerit Certified Solutions Partner, and for good reason. We are a licensed, insured, reputable, and legitimate electrical contractor. We have installed hundreds of car chargers- every brand, every model, every configuration, and every type of installation. We’ve been contacted by every car charger manufacturer or installation referral company as they attempted to recruit us into their service. Their services provide no benefit to the customer, only a drain on their wallet. They take a very large piece of the pie, which causes certified contractors to have to charge significantly more money for installations. Electric vehicle owners call this the "Tesla Tax". And the interesting thing is that every electrical contractor in our service area that is "certified" has installed far less car chargers than we have. Signing up with a manufacturer or referral company to become “certified“ doesn’t guarantee training, experience, knowledge, or capability. The only thing it guarantees is a much higher cost to the customer. Why pay the middleman, especially when that middleman is a multi-billion dollar corporation?
