How do I set up an electrical car charging system at my home?

This question has both an easy and a complex solution. These adjectives are used to describe almost everything that is related to EVs as well as the entire business they have created.

The article in this post will not only guide you on the best way to recharge your electric car as well as answer a myriad of questions. Examples include:

  • What is an electric vehicle charging dock?
  • What kinds of charging stations for electric vehicles available?
  • What is the cost of an electric charging station?
  • How long does an electric car take to charge?
  • What is the price of charging an electric car?
  • What are the types of electric vehicle charging stations that are available?

There are three types of electric vehicle charging stations. These stations are usually referred to as “electric automobile service equipment” or EVSE. These stations can be simple or more complex than you might think.

What's a Level 1 charging station?

An Level 1-charger is considered to be the simplest charger of the three. The charging cable that is included with the electric vehicle after it is leased or purchased is a one-level charger. They plug into a standard grounded wall socket using a common configuration plug and operate on standard household electrical current (110-120 Volts AC).

Although the Level 1 chargers are convenient and cost-effective, their primary problem is the long, sometimes excruciatingly long, charging times for batteries. An Level-1 charger should be able to offer 5 to 6 miles of charging in the case of an electric vehicle (EV). If your vehicle has 200 miles of range, it will take between 35 and 50 hours to fully charge.

Level 1 solutions can only be employed to power plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV). In a typical PHEV, the battery can be charged in a few hours.

What exactly is a Level 2 Charging station?

The Level 2 charger is next on the EV charging station ladder. Level 2 chargers use circuits with 240 volts, which are similar to the circuits that charge electric dryers.

Some level 2 charging stations can be carried , and they use the multi-pronged connector with an outlet for dryers. A lot of households have this electrical outlet as well as a circuit for their laundry room. It’s not a good idea to remove the dryer from the circuit for the purpose of plugging in your electric car tesla charger.

The vast majority of charging stations in the Level 2 charging points are installed in homes by homeowners who hire electricians to run a 240-volt circuit to the garage. Customers can “hard-wire” their charging stations to the circuit after the garage is powered. They can also connect an Level 2 wall charger to the 240-volt socket in the garage. They can then take the tesla wall charger along with them.

It is costly to hire an electrician and modify the electrical system at your house. The big advantage is the quicker charging times that speed up the time to recharge. An EV battery can be charged at Level 2 in a fraction of the time it would take with Level 1. This is the most convenient charging station for those who own an electric car.

A PHEV with a 200 mile range can be recharged within 10 to 15 minutes. An Level-2 charging station can be utilized with a PHEV to charge the battery in just four hours.

What is an Level 3 charging station?

The Level 3 charger for electric vehicles is the third. It is intended to be used for commercial purposes or use by people who have to stop for a few minutes before returning on their journey.

At level 3 stations for filling, DC fast chargers (DCFC) are provided. In turn, charging times can be increased. In just less than one hour, certain level 3 fast chargers can fully charge a battery pack from its fully charged state. With a 350-volt or 750-volt charging system, the most recent EV models are able to recharge high-power batteries between 10 percent up to 80 percent in just 20 minutes. The charging times of Level 3 devices are even shorter, despite the apparent lightning speed. It’s possible to compare Level 3’s charging speed with the typical gas station.

A Level 3 car charging setup can easily cost $50,000. Although it is highly improbable that your energy utility would allow the installation of a Level 3 charging cable in your home, even if you had that kind of cash to invest, as a lot of residences don’t have electrical panels that are able to support it.

Connecting to a Wall

Third generation Tesla Wall Connector was designed for easy installation. Third generation Tesla Wall Connector comes with an open wire box with integrated terminals. This gives plenty of space for landing wires. Access points are created by extending from top to bottom, and the rear. To commission Wall Connectors and connect to Internet networks of customers Installers can make use of their smartphones.

Wall Connector Commissioning

Wall Connector hosts Wi-Fi networks to configure breaker sizes as well as Wi-Fi connectivity and power sharing. The Wi-Fi network is broadcast for five minutes following that the Wall Connector has been energized. It is also able to be activated for another five minutes after pressing the button on the handle of the charging cable.

Cost

Installation costs can be varying dependent on the type of electrical system you use.

An installation that is straightforward can cost anywhere from $750 to $1,500. If you need additional equipment to complete your installation the price will increase according to the requirements.

Usually included:

  • Service and materials for professional installation
  • Permit
  • Inspection
  • Warranty for installation

Usually, additional:

  • The length of the wire runs (distance from an electric panel to the location of the installation)
  • Sub-panels that are additional
  • Trench (underground wires)
  • Existing Main panel upgrade
  • Pedestal installation
  • Hidden cables hidden behind walls
  • Installation Resources
