In order to save time when charging, EV owners will look to upgrade to a Level 2 charging station when they purchase a new home. These devices require a Licensed electrician to install a 240-volt electrical supply sourced from a dedicated circuit and can provide around half a mile of range per minute.
It's important to know the spare amperage capacity available in your home as this dictates what electric service upgrades, if any, are needed. Level 2 chargers typically require 30 to 50 amps of current. If your home contains a 100-amp electrical panel, your appliances are likely using most of its capacity, meaning you may need to upgrade to a 200-amp panel.
