How Do I Install an EV Charging Station at Home?

Before you begin the installation process, it’s important to understand exactly what kind of charging system you’ll be adding to your home. That’s because there are three different levels of charging, and Level 2 charging is the only one that requires home installation.

Level 1 charging has a low enough voltage that you can use the existing outlets and electricity infrastructure already in your home. Because the voltage is so low, however, Level 1 charging is typically reserved for PHEVs, or plug-in hybrid vehicles, rather than fully electric cars.

Level 3 charging, on the other hand, is often referred to as DC fast charging. That’s because Level 3 charging has an incredibly high voltage, one that is too high for plug-in hybrid vehicles. It’s also too high for residential homes, which is why Level 3 charging is only found at public stations.

The best at-home charging infrastructure is for Level 2 charging, which allows you to charge your vehicle for daily driving. Before installing your charger, consider when you’ll be charging your vehicle and how often, where you’ll charge it, and what kind of vehicle it is. Then simply compare options and prices from local installers to begin the process.
