Level 2 – Faster Charging (recommended)
For a faster EV charge you can have a professional electrician install a 240-volt circuit similar to the one you probably have on your home clothes dryer. This is the recommended option*. A Level 2 charger can recharge or refuel most electric vehicles in four to five hours.
*Level 2 charging requires Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) that helps enhance safety. This is a higher voltage and will require a local permit and possibly an inspection for home installation. This will require an upgrade, run new lines and additional equipment.
Contact the experts at Mr. Value Electricians for cost and we’ll take care of everything else. We can determine if you currently have the capacity in your electrical panel or if a new circuit will be needed.
