As the world shifts to more sustainable energy sources, electric vehicles (EVs) are becoming increasingly popular. In fact, EVs are projected to account for 10% of all new car sales in Canada by 2025. With the increasing popularity of EVs, it is important that property owners consider installing EV chargers. In this blog post, we will discuss everything you need to know about EV charger installation.
Benefits of installing an EV charger
Installing an EV charger on your property has several benefits. First, it’s convenient. You no longer have to worry about finding a public charging station or waiting for your car to charge while you’re out and about. Second, it is cost effective. Charging at home is generally cheaper than charging at a public station. Finally, it is environmentally friendly. By using an EV charger, you are reducing your carbon footprint and helping to reduce air pollution.
Factors to consider
Before installing an EV charger, there are several factors to consider. First, you need to decide what kind of charger you want. There are two types of chargers: Level 1 and Level 2. Level 1 chargers are slower and require a standard 120-volt outlet, while Level 2 chargers are faster and require a 240-volt outlet. Second, you need to consider the location of the charger. It is important to make sure that the charger is easily accessible and that the cable can reach your vehicle. Finally, you should consider the electrical capacity of your property. Installing a level 2 charger requires a higher electrical capacity than a level 1 charger.
