One of our driving goals at Eco Electric, LLC is to offer affordable EV charger installations. You made a giant leap purchasing a plug-in hybrid or fully electric vehicle. Adding a new fast charging station at your home should be an easy and exciting experience. Below are some things to consider about your new EV charger installation.
The size of your new charger will be determined by two main factors. How quickly you want to charge your new vehicle and the capacity of your electrical service. The typical home can support a 240 volt 40-50 amp charger. We can help you determine the size during our free estimate inspection.
Check with the vehicle manufacturers recommendations first. Then, consider any utility or other rebate programs for EV charger installations. Currently, for Consumers Energy electric utility customers, a rebate is available with the installation of specific Level 2 chargers.
Not always. If your electrical panel was installed in the last 20 years, there's a good chance you don't need to. There needs to be additional free space in your panel to install the new wiring. Your electrical panel and service will be inspected during the onsite estimate. If your panel or service needs to be upgraded, we can provide an estimate and complete that project for you as well.
The size of the charger, what brand, and location will determine your installation costs. Are you installing a smaller charger relatively close to the electrical panel? Or, are you installing a "super charger" that's far away from the panel? Average costs can be found on many home improvement and contractor search websites. An onsite inspection is required for us to provide an estimate.
