Electric Vehicle Chargers

Electric vehicles (EVs) have surged in popularity as more individuals seek sustainable living. This shift not only represents a significant move towards reducing carbon footprints but also showcases an evolving approach to personal transportation. As a result, more homeowners need efficient charging solutions. At Safe Light Electric, we understand the importance of having a reliable EV charging station at your residence. Our team of experienced electricians is dedicated to installing high-quality EV charging stations to make charging your vehicle easy and convenient.

How Electric Vehicle Chargers Work

Electric vehicle chargers, also known as Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE), are devices that supply electrical energy to recharge electric vehicles. Generally, there are two levels of EV chargers used on residential property, each differing in terms of charging speed and installation requirements. Level 1 chargers utilize a standard 120-volt outlet and are typically the slowest, whereas Level 2 chargers operate on a 240-volt system similar to electric dryers, offering faster charging. 

Benefits of Installing an EV Charging Station

Having a home EV charging station brings a plethora of benefits. Foremost among these is the unparalleled convenience of charging your vehicle overnight, ensuring it’s ready for use each morning without the need for stops at public charging stations. Additionally, Level 2 home chargers significantly reduce charging time compared to standard Level 1 chargers, making them ideal for EV owners with demanding schedules or longer commuting needs. 

The Installation Process

The process of installing an EV charging station is meticulous, requiring professional expertise to ensure safety and functionality. At Safe Light Electric, the installation process begins with a comprehensive evaluation of your home’s electrical system by our certified electricians. This step is crucial to ascertain whether your system can accommodate the chosen EVSE, particularly if a Level 2 charger is preferred.

Once compatibility is confirmed, our team will guide you through selecting the appropriate charger for your vehicle, considering factors like amperage and your specific charging needs. Our aim is to provide a solution that offers both efficiency and reliability, complemented by our commitment to superior service and workmanship.

Following the selection of the charger, Safe Light Electric takes care of the necessary permits and schedules an inspection to comply with all local regulations and standards. Our electricians then proceed with the installation, ensuring that the charger is properly hardwired into your electrical system and located in a position that maximizes convenience for you. Upon completion, a thorough testing phase confirms the operational integrity of the charging station, providing you with peace of mind.
