The Best Electric Car Charging Stations
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, more than 80% of EV owners charge at home. This convenient way to charge your EV overnight, so it is fresh in the morning for your commute to work, offers a few options – plugin charging stations and hardwired charging stations.
Plugin EV Chargers
Plugin EV chargers let you insert your mobile charger for your EV directly into a dedicated 240-volt outlet. This type of charger gives you a more flexible option depending on your vehicle’s compatibility with different types of EV chargers.
Installation of this dedicated 240-volt outlet circuit includes the following:
- AFCI/ARC fault breakers
- GFCI receptacle for plug in capability
Hardwired EV Chargers
The hardwired EV chargers are a more permanent solution to your EV charging needs. This option of EV charging is suitable for multiple panel amperages, as most hardwired charges allow installation ranging from 20AMPS to 60AMPS dependent on the capability of your homes electrical panel.
The hardwired charging station installation includes the following:
- AFCI/ARC breakers
- Dedicated circuit
Brennan Electric has a base cost for installation of both hardwired and plug-in EV charging stations installed within 5ft of your electrical panel starting at $1200.00. There are several solutions for your installation, and pricing is varied depending on several factors.
