Having the option of charging your electric car at home is crucial to ensuring that you’re fueled up and ready to go whenever you need it.
There are a variety of electric vehicles and PHEV charging stations available for installation to fit different needs. The two basic models are freestanding units, which resemble metal posts, and wall-mounted units. The stations do not have to look obtrusive; the sleek, modern designs allow them to integrate easily into your garage or your business. You must have experienced professionals install these devices so they hook into your local power grid correctly and provide the power levels you need at the charging speed you want. It’s also important that the professional installers provide proper ground fault protection that will meet all electrical code and fire safety standards.
For commercial charging stations, there are other special considerations when it comes to installation. You can have your company’s charging stations networked so you can remotely manage them from a desktop or other Internet-enabled device. This also allows for quick analysis of problems so you know when to call for repairs.
