Electric Car Charging Stations Installation in RI

Being environmentally conscious is no longer restricted solely to your home or income level. If you really want to do your part, then having an electric vehicle is the best way to cut down on fossil fuel emissions.

To supercharge these efforts, you need a charging station in your garage to make it is worth your time. Otherwise, you will be reliant on third party charging stations in your area to power your vehicle.

At Mister Sparky, our team of trained and certified professionals can begin working on your electric charging station right away. We offer professional and efficient services so that you can spend less time planning an installation and more time driving.

Install EV Charging Station at Home

Fortunately, all mass-produced electric cars on the market operate with a standard 110V outlet. These carmakers include Tesla, General Motors, Nissan, BMW, Hyundai, Volkswagen, Toyota, and Ford.

While 110V outlets are good, electric vehicles still need stronger chargers. Right now, the Chevrolet Volt and Nissan Leaf take somewhere between 10-16 hours to charge with a 110 Volt. Waiting 10 hours or more for your car to charge is not feasible for many drivers.

Tesla charging stations tested the boundaries of electric charging, so their clients can charge faster. The carmakers’ Wall Connector offers a 240V Level 2 charging station to help cut the charge time in half over 110V outlets.

The Wall Connector even includes the NEMA 6-50 plug electric cars that need to connect to a 240V outlet.

The challenge with installation goes beyond the outlet. With more car companies designing their own electric cars, it is imperative to ensure the electric charging station you install meets a viable charging rate.

Cars need to have a minimum charging rate of 7.2 kilowatts to power a wide range of electric vehicles. This charging rate ensures cars like the Chevy Volt, Nissan Leaf, and BMW i3 get the charge they need.

Finally, you should consider adding a smart device that can track your energy charge and consumption via a smartphone app or online tool.

EV Charging Station Placement

Once you are ready to install your electric charging station, the next question is where should you place it in your home? Often, drivers put the charging station in their garage, so they can charge their car overnight as they sleep.

To power, your car overnight, make sure the cord is long enough to reach a parked car outside the garage. Most families have more than one car, so it is important you get a cord between 6 ft to 25 ft to reach any car you own overnight.
