Electric Vehicle Chargers: Installing Your Home’s Power Station

Leasing or buying a hybrid or electric vehicle means that you’re saving hundreds of gallons of gasoline every year. You need to plug these vehicles into electrical power as an alternative fuel source. However, most homes aren’t equipped to handle the power volumes required of the latest car models.

As a solution, your local Ottawa electrician at Montana Electric has you covered when it comes to EV charging. Our highly skilled electricians can survey your household and determine the best way to install EV charging station components.

Distribution PanelStandard Outlet Charging

Any residential electrician will tell you that a standard outlet for your car-charging purposes is sufficient, but it will be slow. In some cases, the charge takes around 10 to 12 hours. If you want to stick with this charging scenario, Montana Electric can verify that your circuitry is safe enough to support the load.

Standard outlets carry 120 volts or 15 amps of energy. You want the car to be on its own dedicated circuit. We can ensure that the safety of your car and electrical system are top priorities on our visit.

Converting to Rapid Chargers

During one appointment, our Master Electrician can install EV charging station components in your home. Rapid chargers are the latest inventions to speed up your power needs. Cut your charging time by several hours with an electrical contractor properly configuring the circuits. Instead of struggling with a how-to instruction manual, an Ottawa electrician can make quick work out of a complex service.

The Professional’s Perspective

An EV charger installation cannot be successfully completed without the expertise of our Master Electrician. Take a look at the finer points of your new, power system that must be refined, such as:

  • Breaking down the latest products on the market
  • Matching the charger with your electrical panel
  • Mounting the components with the proper accessories
  • Locating the most convenient area for the charger installation
  • Dealing with ESA inspections
  • Submitting your electric-vehicle rebate to Ontario officials
