 Electric Vehicle Charger Installation In Enoch & Cedar City
We offer professional installation of level 2 EV charging systems

Are you getting ready to purchase an electric or hybrid vehicle? Maybe you already own one and would like the convenience of having your own charging station wired into your garage or outside of your home? Maybe you’re a commercial property owner who would like to install some electric car charging stations for your customers? The amount of electric vehicles on our roads is increasing every year.

While many electric vehicles can be plugged directly into a standard 120v electrical outlet, they can take a much longer time to charge. Having a dedicated 240v EV charging station can greatly reduce charge times and also increase your convenience.

Ampere Electric is a full service electrical contractor serving the Enoch and Cedar City area. We specialize in the installation and repair of both level 1 and level 2 electric car charging stations for residential and commercial clients. We can install a private charging station in your garage or in front of your home or even one for public/paid use on your commercial property or we can also install multiple EV chargers for residential developments such as condos or townhomes.

What’s The Difference Between Level 1 and Level 2 Charging Stations?

The main difference between a level 1 and level 2 EV charger is the amount of voltage and amps available in the circuit. With a standard level 1 charger you are receiving roughly 120 volts and 20 amps, this is a common household circuit. It can take anywhere from 13-25 hours to fully charge some of today’s electric vehicles.

With a level 2 charger you are stepping up the available electricity substantially with 240 volts and a 40 amp circuit. Your electric vehicle can be charged within 4-5 hours.

If you’re installing EV chargers at a commercial location or multiple EV chargers for a housing development like a condo or townhome then level 2 charging stations are going to much more convenient and will be able to charge more electric vehicles per day.

If you’re after the best possible EV driver experience then level 2 charging stations are the best option, they are faster and therefore much more convenient for the users.

What Is A Networked EV Charging Station?

If you’re installing EV chargers for your business or multiple chargers for condo or townhome residents than networked EV charging stations will provide you with a lot more data and control. With networked EV chargers you can control who uses the charging stations, you can control the cost to drivers, and you can even generate reports on who uses the charging stations, how often, and for how long. This can provide a much clearer picture of how your EV charging stations are benefiting your business or your residents.

The EV Charger Installation Process

Installing a new EV charging system is typically a straightforward project. Here is what it entails

1. Initial Assessment:

The first step in installing an Electric Vehicle (EV) charging station is assessing your home's electrical system. We will need to determine whether your current electrical service can handle the additional load from the EV charger. Most home chargers require a 240-volt circuit. If your system lacks the capacity for the additional load, you may need an electrical panel upgrade.

2. Determining Charger Location:

Once your electrical system has been assessed, we will decide on the best location for the charger. This is typically in the garage or near the parking spot for the EV. The placement aims to minimize the length of the charging cord to avoid potential tripping hazards and other inconveniences.

3. Installing a Dedicated Circuit:

With the charger location set, we will install a new dedicated circuit from the electrical panel to the charger's location. This typically involves running electrical conduit along the exterior or interior of the house, drilling holes as needed, and pulling wire through the conduit.

4. Connecting the Charger:

Next, we will install a new circuit breaker in your electrical panel and connect the wiring from the new circuit. Then we will install the EV charging station at the chosen location and connect it to the new circuit. The exact installation process may vary depending on the specific model of the EV charger.

5. Post-Installation Testing and Inspection:

After the installation is complete, we will test the charger to ensure it's working properly. You should also schedule an inspection with your local electrical inspector to confirm the installation meets local electrical codes.

Questions About EV Charging Systems?

It depends on the capacity of your current electrical system. Most home chargers require a 240-volt circuit. If your current electrical system cannot handle the additional load from the EV charger, you might need to upgrade your electrical panel.

The exact time it takes can vary depending on several factors, including the condition of your existing electrical system and the distance from the electrical panel to the charger location. However, most installations can be completed in a day.

There are different types of EV chargers with different power levels. Level 1 chargers plug into a standard electrical outlet but charge slowly. Level 2 chargers require a dedicated 240-volt circuit but charge much faster. The best charger for you depends on your vehicle, how much you drive, and how much time your vehicle spends parked at home. We can help you decide on the best charger for your needs.

Most Level 2 EV chargers are designed to be used both indoors and outdoors and are weather-resistant. However, it's essential to discuss this with your electrician and consider factors such as extreme weather conditions in your area.
