There are three levels of EV charging stations: Level 1 and Level 2 stations are used for residential and personal vehicle applications; Level 3 stations are designed for heavy-
Level 1 chargers use standard household current at 110/120 volt (110/120V) electrical outlets which generally will not require any changes to your home's electrical system unless you need to add or relocate an outlet to eliminate the use of an extension cord. Using extension cords to charge electric vehicles can pose electrical as well as general safety hazards and should not be considered an option.
Using a basic circuit, Level 1 car charger requires less power but will take much longer to charge your vehicle than a Level 2 car charger. Generally, a 120V outlet can recharge about 40 miles of electric driving overnight. If your daily driving is ever greater than 40 miles, you should consider a 240V charging station at home.
Level 2 charging units require a 240 volt (240V) electrical outlet (the kind needed for clothes dryers). Because these units add significant load to your electrical service panel, they require special installation by an electrician. In some cases, your electrical service panel may require an upgrade to accommodate the addition of a 240V circuit.
In addition, depending on your location installation of these car charging stations often require permits which can only be obtained by a licensed electrician. Actual permit and inspection requirements vary from city to city.
Level 2 car charging stations can recharge your vehicle for 200 or more miles of electric driving overnight.
Your new car dealer may offer a home assessment and charging station installation as part of the electric vehicle purchase. You may opt to use this as a negotiating point to reduce the price of the vehicle, and save money by hiring an independent licensed electrician. Because Nisat Electric is an independent contractor, our car charging station installation fees are much lower than those of dealers who use these fees as a way to recoup money lost in the negotiation price.

Your home and vehicle are your most valuable assets, and your personal safety is priceless; do not place them at risk due to unprofessional electric car charger installation.
