Usually, it is the responsibility of the homeowner to make sure that the electrical load of an EV charger can be supported in the home. They must also specify where and how many spaces will be required for the charging station.
The specs of the charger to be used, including the model and voltage, must be documented as well. All maintenance and repairs must coincide with the requirements of the original manufacturer's specifications. Inspections may be held in order to ensure all equipment is operating properly and meets all the necessary codes.
LEVELS OF ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING
Level 1 chargers utilize standard outlets, so no additional wiring is necessary. However, level 2 chargers may require an electrical panel upgrade if you live in an older home.
The charging levels for electric vehicles include:
- Level 1 charger: 120-volt (standard home outlet).
- Level 2 charger: 240-volt (voltage used by a dryer).
- Level 3 charger: High-speed, direct current charging.
