Car charger installation

We recommend Level 2 charging, with a 240 V circuit and one of the following, and most used outlet configurations – NEMA 14-30, NEMA 10-30, NEMA 10-50, and NEMA 14-50. The configuration of a 240 V circuit with a NEMA 14-30 outlet will give you an average of 20 miles for 1 hour of charging while the same voltage but this time with a NEMA 14-50 outlet will give you an average of 30 miles for 1 hour of charging.
The EV charging station or EVSE (Electrical Vehicle Supply Equipment) is another component of this setup. Here you could go for a plug-in option where, as the name suggests, the unit is plugged into one of the above-mentioned outlets. This option is less permanent as you can easily unplug the unit and plug it into a different location, but it is not rated for outside use.

The second type of EVSE is hardwired. This is a more permanent setup. It will require the help of a certified electrician if relocation is needed and does not require a wall outlet as the connection is made in a junction box using a dedicated wire. This setup is rated for both indoor and outdoor use and provides a larger range of amperage which means more charge speed options.

A charging station connects an adapter between the power grid and your electric car. Charging at home has many advantages, but the most important are cost efficiency and lowering the waiting time.Installing a car charging station in your home is the ideal solution. Basically, in the evening you can connect the car to the socket and by the morning the battery will be fully charged. At the same time, a proprietary charging point is faster compared to conventional three-pin sockets, and also safer. An electric car charging point at home is basically a small unit that mounts on the wall. It has features that make it resistant to any weather conditions.
