EV Charger Installation
Congratulations! You just decided to purchase your first electric vehicle. Now, let’s get down to the things you will need to charge your vehicle. The beauty of bringing home a new or used electric vehicle is you can plug it into a normal receptacle. The bad side is that your car will charge slowly, and you need a special charging station installed.
EV Home Charger Installation
Make sure you “defer liability” and have the dealership give you a list of recommended chargers as there are so many on the market these days. I have noticed that there are many electrical vehicles and their respective chargers have the ability to be manipulated so that we can select our charging rate and ampacity. This will alleviate a lot of the pain when it comes to making your new EV fit your lifestyle and current electrical circumstances.
What kind of EV charger do I need?
What brand of an automobile are you purchasing? What kind of charger you need depends on what kind of car you purchase. The Nissan Leaf and Chevy Bolt don’t necessarily need large circuits, as compared to the Porsche and Tesla Model S or X.
Is your electrical service too small? A 100-amp service is more than sufficient for the items we have become accustomed to. However, if you already have central AC and your dryer, range, and water heater are electric, 100 amps may not be enough to support an EV.

To demonstrate that Pennsylvania is ready for EVs, government and business leaders are developing new policies, creating financial incentives, and engaging in public-private investments. Pennsylvania has offered tax credits up to $5,000 for public use and $4,000 for private installations.
In addition, boosting consumer confidence in EVs with a strategic rollout of EV charging stations to meet the projected demand, Pennsylvania can join the northeast and mid-Atlantic states to support a regional clean transportation network.
