Why Home EV Charging?
Unlike traditional gas vehicles, where you go to a gas station to fill up, 80% of charging for electric vehicles is done at home. Having a level 2 charger in your house is essential for almost all EV drivers.
There is nothing better than going to bed empty and waking up to a full “tank”.
If you have tried to charge your EV with a regular wall outlet, you know that it just takes way too long. By installing a level 2 charger (220v) you will get approximately 30-35 miles of range per hour. Plenty to plug in at night and wake up charged and ready to go for your day.

3 Steps To Home Charging
How much does a charger cost to get installed?
The cost of a home EV charger installation varies. The distance to your charger from your electrical panel and whether or not you have the available power can make a impact on price.
I've seen online that an install should only cost $500 why is my proposal more expensive?
While it is true some installations can cost $500 or even less if an electrical panel is located very near the charger locations. Typically an install is a bit more. We are a licensed electrical contractor and we make sure our installations are done according the NEC code and manufactures specifications, we also ensure the required permits are pulled.
We may not always be the cheapest you can find, but when plugging in 240v electricity into a vehicle with flammable batteries; often parked inside your garage – you want to make sure the installation is done properly!
How long does an install take?
A typical install takes between 4-6 hours depending on the complexity. If trenching is required, an install could take up to 2 days.
How long will it take to charge my vehicle?
This will vary some from vehicle-to-vehicle. Typically with a level 2 home charger you will see somewhere in the range of 30-35 mph of charger. With nearly all vehicles this is more than sufficient to fully charge your vehicle over-night.
Contact us if you would like to know the specific charging time of your vehicle.
What brands of chargers/vehicle manufactures do you install?
We install any charger from any manufacturer. Our installers are certified on Tesla & ChargePoint but can install any charger you prefer. We are also one of the top installers in the Columbus market. You can check us out on Tesla’s Website
How much will charging increase my electric bill?
A good rule of thumb is you spend about 1/3rd of what you spend in gas with an EV. The majority of the charging will be done at home. Depending on your utility – an average driver may see a $30-$40.
One good way to offset that cost, is to go Solar! Contact us to see if Solar would be a good fit for you.
