Electric Vehicle Charger Home Installation
Chargers for electric vehicles require a direct connection to an electrical panel in a home. A licensed electrician must complete the installation and can handle the permit requirements associated with the installation.
Reducing Electricity Costs for Vehicle Charging
Traditionally, customers pay for electricity based on a flat rate which means that the cost of electric is the same no matter what time the electricity is used.
The most economical way to charge an electric vehicle is by using “late night electricity”, which makes electricity used during overnight hours cheaper, and electricity used during the day more expensive.
Homeowners can take advantage of late night electricity billing by adding a second electric meter or by choosing to pay for electricity based on “time of use”.
