Are there certain requirements needed to have an EV charging station installed at my house?
To bring an EV charging station right to your own home, you will first need a licensed electrician to come to your house to perform an assessment in order to determine if your current electric system will support the charger, scope out all work that needs to be done, and create a plan for completion.
Next, you and the electrician need to choose a charging site. This area should have easy accessibility, good visibility, and be safe for installers, users, and the public. Once you determine you have a charging site that will work, you will need an outdoor standard outlet installed near your desired parking area. When this has been completed, you are ready to select a charging station model that is most ideal for your specific situation and needs.
Things to consider when choosing your EV charging station model
There are 3 levels of charging stations. Residential EV charging stations run on AC charging system power flow and are either a level 1 or level 2 charging station.
AC level 1 Stations:
AC level 1 Stations typically have a voltage of 120v 1-phase AC, 12-16 Amps, 1.4-1.9 KW, and will get you 3-5 miles of range per hour of charging. These chargers typically come with the vehicle.
AC level 2 Stations:
AC level 2 Stations have a voltage of 208 or 240v 1-phase AC, 18-80 Amps, 2.5 -19.2 KW, and will get you 10-20 miles of range per hour of charging. These chargers use a home outlet. Commercial EV charging stations use DC power flow.
DC level 3 Stations:
DC level 3 Stations have a voltage of 208v or 480v 3-phase AC, a maximum of 125 Amps, a maximum of 90 KW, and will get you an 80% charge in only 20-30 minutes. These level 3 chargers are referred to as “fast chargers” and are found in places such as parking lots. For residential installs, it is also important to consider cord length.
Many electric vehicle chargers are offered with standard and extended cord length options. The cord length you need will depend on the placement of your outlet in relation to where your vehicle will be parked and the location of the charge port on the car you will be charging. This layout will differ from house to house based on any obstacles the charging set up is operating around.

Savings and Benefits Over Gas Powered Vehicles
A 2018 study showed that electric vehicles cost on average half as much to operate as gas powered cars. On average, it is said that a new gas powered car costs $1,117 to run a year, while a new electric vehicle only costs around $485 to run a year. These savings are coming from reduced fuel and maintenance costs. On average, electric cars cost $19,000 more than gas powered cars. No longer being brand new to the market, the initial investment of an electric car is becoming more comparable to the initial cost of a gas powered car and many of the electric cars offer additional luxury, high technology features for this price that you would not be getting with the gas powered vehicle. Also, electric cars are now very well tested and becoming recognized as extremely reliable and safe. The added environmental benefits may also be a reason to make the switch.
Residential EV Station FAQs
Do public charging stations charge?
Yes, it is not free to charge your electric vehicle at a public station, but it is still significantly less than filling up a gas tank.
Are electric vehicle charging stations safe?
Yes, they are designed so no electricity is flowing through the cord until it is connected to the car.
What are the benefits of having a Level 2 charging station installed at your home?
Having a charging station right at home is more convenient and faster than the level 1 charger that the vehicles come with by half the time to a full charge.
