In Charlotte NC, the demand for electric vehicle (EV) chargers is growing. With more people converting to electric vehicles, having public and residential EV charging stations is a must. Our Charlotte Electricians will discuss the installation process for EV and Tesla chargers in Charlotte and make recommendations on what type of charging station will best suit your EV needs.
When it comes to EV chargers, there are two main types of chargers that can be installed, Tesla Chargers and standard EV chargers. Tesla chargers are specialized for the Tesla Model 3, S, and X, while the standard EV charger works with all electric vehicle makes and models. It is important to note that the standard EV chargers come in a variety of power outputs and can be scaled to fit your EV charging needs. Tesla chargers can be installed in homes or businesses while standard EV chargers can be installed in home garages, on the street, or at a commercial space.
The installation process can vary based on the type of charger and electrical supply required. Homeowners with existing Tesla Chargers installed in their home can get a professional technician to replace the equipment with a new one. This will not require additional infrastructure and the cost is relatively low compared to installing a new charger altogether. If the home requires a new Tesla charger, the homeowner will need to work with a licensed electrician.
Our Charlotte electrician will agree on an installation plan based on the power supply and housing needs as well as the EV charger’s location. Businesses considering EV Chargers will need a certified electrician to install the equipment and meet local building codes. The electrician will need to define the location, power supply requirements and need to speak with the property manager as some businesses require permits and/or landlord approval. When it comes to EV chargers, one needs to decide which type is best for your EV charging needs. Tesla Chargers are ideal for EV owners with Tesla EV models while standard EV Chargers are the most versatile and will work with all electric vehicles. They are also more cost effective than the Tesla Chargers and can be scaled up or down depending on the specific.
