Car Charging Facts
Below are car charging facts for Tesla and other Electric Vehicles.
Electrical Upgrades may be Required:
Fast Charging draws a lot of electricity (current) and may require a service upgrade. This is especially true for small and/or old homes.
Charging Station Location Matters:
Finding a good location in your garage or parking area is a key consideration for installation.
Circuits we add for your charging station will be beneficial in the distant future for new Electric Vehicles and Charging Stations.
Not quite Zero Emissions:
Your new electric vehicle is only as clean as the power plant making the electricity charging it… This brings me to the next fact (see below).
Solar makes Electric Vehicles truly emission free:
Electric vehicle owners that purchase solar panels are essentially purchasing their fuel for the next 25+ years! Learn more about Solar Power.
At this time we are only installing EV chargers on our larger solar projects. Our Licensed Electricians specialize in adding circuits, service upgrades, and charging station installation.
