Car Power Charger Stations
Let Hi Amp Electric Electric get you GREEN. We can install any of the car charger units that you need to get your car charged and ready to go!
An electric vehicle charging station, also called EV charging station, electric recharging point,
charging point and EVSE (Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment), is an element in an infrastructure that
supplies electric energy for the recharging of plug-in electric vehicles, including all-electric cars,
neighborhood electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids. You may also need one for your Home.
We install dedicated 120 volt,220 volt circuits for your charger.
Plugging In: Your Own Charging Station at home
To fuel your car at home, you’ll need access to at least a standard 120-volt outlet in a convenient location where you can park and charge. If you want to charge faster, you will need a dedicated 220-volt circuit and an electric car charging station. Be sure to have our qualified electricians inspect your outlet, because charging an electric car may overload an existing household circuit, particularly if it serves other household needs like lights and appliances. Hi Amp Electric can advise whether you need a dedicated circuit breaker or an upgrade to your circuit breaker panel.
You have options when it comes to electric car charging equipment and installation, and they will be influenced by your choice of electric car models and your driving habits. If your electric car has a smaller battery, or if you simply drive less, you can charge your electric car within a few hours using a standard household 120-volt outlet. If your electric car has a larger battery or you drive more, you may want a home charging station or dock for faster charging. Call us before you buy your electric car, and we’ll help you understand how to safely and effectively transform your home into your own personal electric car fueling station.
In some areas and soon to be most, a seperate Service with a new meter and panel is installed because the power company charges less per Kilowatt Hour for EV related power comsumption systems.
Charging: Levels & Times
There are 2 charging levels—or voltages—for charging electric cars. Higher voltage levels charge batteries faster,
but often require an investment in additional equipment and electricity wiring upgrades.
Level I (120 volts): 6 to 18 Hours Charge Time
Level I charging can take from 6 to 18 hours for a full battery charge, using the familiar three-prong 120-volt outlets
found in every home and business. Typically there’s no need for equipment installation since the charging plug provided
with your car will use a 120–volt outlet. You’ll want to consult a qualified electrician to check that your existing wiring
can safely support electric car charging.
Level II (240 volts): 3 to 6 Hours Charge Time
Level II charging is faster. Most electric cars can achieve a full battery charge in 3 to 6 hours.
If you want to create your own Level II charging station or dock at home, you’ll need a 220 or 240-volt line.
The 240-volt,220-volt circuit must be professionally installed by a qualified electrician and be permitted and inspected.
