Charging stations have similar electrical requirements to a clothes dryer or stove (240 Volts/30 Amps) and any licensed electrician can install them. The cost to install a charging station can vary dramatically from case to case and we strongly advise having two or three electricians visit and assess your property to provide an installation quote. The links below can help you find a licensed electrician in your area.

Although informing your local electricity provider that you are installing a charging station is not mandatory, we do recommend it. This will help them monitor the grid impact of electric vehicles and upgrade local transformers if necessary. If you do not know who your local electricity provider is, ask us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
