Home car EV charging point: installation process

Installing charging an electric vehicle (EV) at home typically involves a few key components that need to be solved

1. EV Charger (Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment, EVSE): This is the device that facilitates the charging process. It is commonly known as a charging station or wall charger. They come in various power levels, with the most common being Level 1 (120 volts) and Level 2 (240 volts). Level 2 chargers are faster than Level 1 chargers. We will help you to choose.

2. Home Electrical System: To install a charging point, your home needs to have an electrical system that can support it. This includes the necessary wiring and circuitry. For Level 2 chargers, a dedicated 240-volt circuit is usually required. We will do an audit and let you know if you need updates.

3. Installation by a Professional Electrician: It’s essential to have a certified electrician install the charging station. They will ensure that the installation meets local electrical codes and safety standards. This may involve running wiring from your electrical panel to the location of the charging station. We are certified and know all nuances.

4. Charging Connector: The charging station has a connector that plugs into your electric vehicle. The most common connector types are J1772 (in North America) and Type 2 (in Europe). Some EVs also come with an adapter that allows them to be charged with a standard household outlet. We will let you know after the audit what will be suitable for your case.

5. Charging Cable: The charging station is connected to your electric vehicle by a charging cable. This cable delivers the electrical power from the station to the vehicle’s onboard charger. It goes in the same complect.

Once the charger home point is installed and the EV is plugged in, the charging process is controlled by the vehicle’s charging system. The onboard charger in the EV converts the incoming AC power to DC power to charge the battery. The charging time depends on factors such as the charger’s power level, the vehicle’s battery capacity, and the state of charge of the battery when charging begins.

Keep in mind that the specifics can vary depending on the brand and model of your electric vehicle, as well as the type of charging station you choose.
