Installing a Level 2 EV Home Charging Station
Making the decision to install an electric vehicle charging station on your property is your first step toward an improved electric vehicle ownership experience—you’ll suddenly have the power to fully charge your vehicle overnight and to take advantage of off-peak charging rates offered by many electric utilities, including those in the Orlando area.
How to Prep for EV Charging Station Installation
When it comes to EV charging station installation, there’s just a little bit of prep on the part of the homeowner:
- Decide where the charger will be located. In most cases, this will be a garage, carport, or driveway. But where exactly? Consider where you want to park your EV and where the vehicle’s charge port is located. You want the charger installed near the charge port.
- Hire a licensed electrician experienced with Level 2 charger installations. At United States Heating & Air Conditioning, we will help you choose the right home charger for your home and your EV. When it arrives, call us to schedule your professional installation.
What’s the Cost to Install an EV Charging Station?
There are a lot of chargers on the market, ranging in price from about $350 to $800. Installation costs vary, depending on if a 240-volt plug already exists in your garage, if the charger is going to be plugged in or hardwired into your electric panel (for higher amperage and faster charging), and the distance between the charger and the electric panel.
A growing number of electric utilities across the country offer rebates for the purchase of Level 2 EV home chargers, or even home charger installation. For example, the Orlando Utilities Commission offers rebates for homeowners who buy or lease electric vehicles. Check with your electricity service provider for these rebates, along with off-peak hours discount charging programs.
