Why Install an Electric Car Charging Station?
Electric vehicle use is on the rise, resulting in rapidly increasing demand for charging stations. The installation of new residential and commercial charging stations is part of the necessary infrastructure to support the widespread adoption of electric vehicles.
Residential charging stations are convenient, allowing you to get most of your vehicle’s required energy directly from your home while you sleep. Commercial stations offer more options for charging and increase potential driving ranges, but they have other benefits as well.
In addition to cultivating a positive brand image and meeting environmental goals, commercial charging stations attract affluent customers, help retain high-quality tenants, and increase employee satisfaction.
Upgrading to a Level 2 EV Charging Station
The level 1 charger that comes standard with electric vehicles lets you plug into standard home outlets but requires almost a full day to charge your car completely. Level 2 chargers can charge your vehicle between three to five times faster than the standard charger and use the same voltage as a standard refrigerator.
Level 2 chargers require professional installation in exchange for their effectiveness. Our experienced electricians can rewire your electrical system to support this new appliance efficiently and safely. We are dedicated to providing superior workmanship using parts and equipment from the industry’s top brands.
Not sure if your current system can support the power demands of a level 2 electric charger? We can help! We also offer electrical panel upgrade services.
Put Your Trust in Our Experienced Electricians
When you decide to upgrade to a level 2 electric vehicle charging station, our team at Gillece Services will be there for you through every step of the process. We’ll work with you so that you understand the process and what needs to be done before starting installation.
For example, you'll need a dedicated line for the charging station before installing the EV charging station itself. We’ll also consult with you about other services that may be necessary to support a charging station. You may need a sub-panel if your electric panel does not have enough space for a dedicated line, or the panel itself may need an upgrade.
