Electric car sales are at an all-time high right now. Without an internal combustion engine you eliminate the need for many costly repairs, lower emissions even if you take into account electricity production and of course you are saving money on gas. With a variety of affordable electric cars now on the market, more and more people are taking the plunge. If you’re driving your battery electric vehicle a good distance everyday, you know you can’t just plug these cars into a standard electrical outlet for an effective charge overnight. An electrician can remedy this issue by installing a wall mounted, level 2 charging station, allowing you an effective charge in a shorter amount of time. You may be tempted to take on this project alone, but it may be a bigger project than you might anticipate. Installing a level 2 charger requires running 240 volts from your breaker panel to your charger. A specific circuit breaker needs to be attached to two 120 volt buses at once using a four strand cable. You’ll need to install ground wires and make sure that your breaker box is compatible and also mount your charging unit. While our experienced electricians can knock this out in no time, it can be overwhelming for a homeowner. Hiring a Veneman professional electrician for the job means that you can rest easy knowing local building codes such as permits and inspections are taken care of and your new charger is installed safely and properly.
