How do you wire a new garage for an electric car?
I’m currently in the process of building my new house, and I want the garage to be set up so that I can have an electric car charging station. How do you wire a new garage to accommodate an electric car?
Answer provided by
Having a dedicated garage space will be great for charging your electric car, and being able to build it yourself and customize it to your needs will be even better!
While you can absolutely provide guidance to your contractors, you’ll need the help of a professional electrician to do the job properly. When examining the space, the electrician will be able to determine:
- Where to place the electrical service in relation to your parking space
- How much your current electrical supply can handle and the total load of the garage’s existing circuits
- The overall cost of installation
