How do I set up a charger for my electric car?
I’m thinking about buying my first electric car, but I need to figure out a way to set up a home charging station first. How do I set up a charger for my electric car?
Answer provided by
It’s a great time to be shopping for an electric car, so congrats on taking a step toward a more sustainable future.
The first thing you’ll need to set up your home charger is a dedicated garage, carport, or parking spot that is available to be connected to the electrical grid.
An electrician who specializes in electric car charger installation will be able to assess your space and decide where to install the charger. If you live in a condo or apartment building, you can also ask the HOA, property management company, or landlord to install electric car chargers as a perk for residents.
If you have coworkers who drive electric cars, you can also ask your workplace to install chargers for employees.
