EV Chargers Installation - Residential and Commercial

It’s clear that the world is entering a new era in terms of transportation. The capabilities of electric vehicles are increasing, so we are now seeing more of them on the road. In spite of being economical and efficient, it is not always easy to charge an electric car. But, one thing that every EV owner needs is a charger for their car at home and even at their business location.

Are you looking forward to owning an electric vehicle, but you just don’t see how charging your car at home could work for you and your family? Perhaps you already own an electric vehicle but it is usually parked in your garage due to the lengthy charging time? Are you searching the Internet to locate reliable EV charger installers in your area? Well, you certainly have come to the right place.

Two Brothers Electrical can install an EV charger at your home or business, allowing you to charge your electric car.

Our EV Charger Installation Services

A home electric vehicle charging station, also known as a residential charging station or EVSE, is an object that supplies electric energy to a plug-in electric car.

In general, there are three types of residential electric car charging stations. We recommend Level 2 chargers for home use. Never Level 1. Level 3 might be an option for homes but is generally reserved for commercial use.

Our experts will help you select the perfect brand and model of Level 2 charger based on your vehicle and your home. As an additional benefit, Level 2 chargers allow you to recharge your electric vehicle over several hours, so you can always charge your vehicle quickly and conveniently.

A Level 2 charger will charge your vehicle at the rate of 10 to 20 miles usage per hour of charge time. This is ideal for a home. You could even forget to charge your car when you wake up at 6am and need to be out of the door at 8am and in that time have 20 to 40 miles of usage with your car. Plenty of distance before you need to charge again. If you charge your car overnight you will always have a full charge in the morning.

For the most part Level 1 chargers shouldn’t even be a consideration. In fact, if you buy this charger it’s a plug-and-play device. It uses a normal wall outlet. As a result, it can take one hour of charge time to get five to ten miles out of your car depending on the model. For most people, this is just not realistic unless you never plan to drive far and are willing to not use your car until it’s charged overnight.

Level 3 chargers are generally reserved for commercial use. They are fast! You can get 40 to 50 miles out of a 10-minute charge. They generally can’t be installed in homes due to the power requirements. If you can install it in your home you will generally need a panel upgrades as well. On occasion, we do this installation for those EV enthusiasts who need all the features and can’t live without them.

For the most part, we install Level 3 chargers at commercial properties where the businesses management is providing an EV charging station for their staff. We can even make sure that if you have a generator installed on your property it can be used to charge your EV.

Standard Wall Outlet - Level 1

This is a standard 120-volt wall outlet and offers up to 5 miles of range per hour.

Ideal Use – Overnight charging for average daily driving. A good option for plug-in hybrids because of their smaller batteries. Keep one in your car for unexpected charging needs.

240-Volt Outlet - Level 2

This is the most commonly available public charger. It usually gets around 25 miles of range per hour but can go as high as 60 miles of range per hour depending on the car and equipment.

Ideal Use – Quick charging at home or at work. Can be used for overnight charging.

Commercial EV Charger Installation (DC Charging) - Level 3

Commercial electric vehicle charging stations are quickly becoming more sought after, so they can help you attract and retain both customers and employees. The Two Brothers Electrical team of EV charging station installers can help your commercial property benefit from a high-quality electric vehicle charging station installation to serve the future needs of your business. Having electric car chargers installed on your commercial property or business can keep you ahead of the curve, and our team of experts can help. Since we offer turn-key installations, from the initial evaluation of your property to the final installation, we will be able to handle every aspect of the project. Our team of experts can install EV chargers in a variety of properties, including workplaces, hotels, multi-family buildings such as condos, shopping malls, restaurants, parking lots, and garages, among others. This is the fastest EV charging option available. Currently, DC Fast Chargers can provide up to 250 miles of range per hour with 50 to 125 miles of range chargeable in 15 minutes depending on the car and equipment. Ideal Uses:
  • DC Fast Charging is mostly used to facilitate long-distance driving and is usually found at commercial locations along highway corridors.
  • CCS (SAE Combo): Compatible with General Motors®, Ford®, Volkswagen®, and all other brands besides Tesla.
  • Tesla Supercharger: Compatible with Tesla models only.
  • Most publicly available fast chargers have a CCS and CHAdeMO connector or a Tesla connector.
If your business needs new chargers installed to keep up with this change, call Two Brothers Electrical.

Things to Consider Before Installing an EV Charger

Apart from determining whether you should install a Level 1, Level 2, or DC (Level 3) charging port, you must also consider the following:

 Type of plug and connector – It is determined by the type of vehicle. It’s obvious that if you have a Tesla, you’ll choose the original Tesla connector. There is also the SAE J1772, which is the standard plug for most American cars. It is compatible with both Level 1 and Level 2 charging. For fast charging, you can also select CHAdeMO.

  • Safety – You should look for charging stations with the UL certification. A UL certification indicates that the charger has been tested to ensure its safety. Also, be sure to keep pets and children away from power outlets and connectors.
  • Electric capacity – It is always a good idea to check first whether you have an electric panel that can handle EV charging. To be effective, you need a circuit that can deliver 32 amps at least in your home or garage. Ensure you have permission from your landlord and local authorities and adhere to all regulations.
  • Cable length – It is vital to pay attention to the length regardless of where the charging station is located. Ideally, it should run from the wall mount to the car and be made from rugged, well-insulated material to prevent accidents.

Other things that you should consider include whether the charger will be hardwired or plugged in. EV chargers that deliver more than 40 amps need to be hardwired to ensure that the unit is directly connected to your power supply. You should also consider the cost of the equipment and the location for installation.

Benefits of Electric Vehicle Charging Stations:

  1. The most significant benefit of a home or work charging station, beyond convenience, is that it enables long-distance trips in an electric car.

  2. An electric car can be completely discharged (0%) and then driven until it is nearly out of fuel with still more than 10 miles left before the vehicle’s low-charge indicator engages at which point public charging stations will not be helpful anymore.
  1. In this way, many BEVs can cover their daily driving needs without using any public charging infrastructure whatsoever. Furthermore, charging your EV at your own charger will provide a range for 80% of daily trips according to a survey.
  1. An additional benefit is the ability to charge at work, which would allow BEV owners in workplace parking to drive all-electric without having to rely on public charging or paying high electricity prices during the night when their cars are parked at home. 
  1. In addition, some employers have partnered with electric companies and charging station manufacturers for discounts on workplace charging stations. 
  1. Public EV charging infrastructure will be important for new BEV drivers since most drivers travel less than 50 miles per day on average so the majority of daily driving needs can be met by opportunity charging from the household level.
  1. At a private charger, a full recharge can take place in 30 minutes instead of the 3-8 hours that it takes using a standard outlet.
  1. A charging station can be installed both at home or work, depending on which is more practical for the end-user. 
  1. Finally, convenience is the greatest benefit for many BEV owners since these drivers can charge their vehicles while sleeping or working rather than visiting a gas station to refuel every few days.

Why The Need To Install An EV Charger In Your Home?

The availability of a charger at one’s home or work allows for “opportunity charging”, which is charging a vehicle during the hours that an owner would not otherwise be using it. This provides several benefits, including: increased all-electric range in day-to-day use, reduced fuel usage and charges about 30% faster than a standard 110 V outlet. Also, this allows for a full charge overnight when demand for power is lowest.

Charging Sites Evaluations and Estimating

We’ll lead your EV charging installation with the help of experienced team members from Two Brothers Electrical. Our team will provide an evaluation of the site, including traffic patterns, electrical infrastructure needs and compliance issues, parking operations, and sustainability priorities to ensure your EV charging implementation is successful.

Preventative Maintenance

It is likely that the more attractive your EV charging installation is, the longer it will last. Keep equipment running at optimal efficiency with preventative maintenance from Two Brothers Electrical, including proactive repairs, software monitoring, green equipment cleaning, and life cycle management.

Warranty Service and Repairs

Having a plan to protect your electric vehicle charging assets will reduce capital risk. By working with our electricians, you will avoid the high and unpredictable costs associated with reactive electrical repairs and replacements and keep EV charging assets ready and reliable. Let us show you how our warranties and comprehensive service programs can help you control costs and maximize returns on your EV charging investment.

How Does EV Charging Installation Work?

The advantages of owning an electric vehicle include a reduced cost on gas over the long-term as well as better environmental performance. For installation of an EV charger at your residence or business, manufacturers typically recommend that you hire a trained electrician. While you could simply plug your vehicle into an electrical outlet (Level 1 charger), this is not the most efficient way to charge your vehicle and could unnecessarily increase the demands on your electrical system.

We have the following steps in our installation process:

  1. Make an appointment: We offer a free consultation to discuss your needs and determine what upgrades, if any, are needed to your electrical system.
  2. Upgrades: Upon analysis, we will let you know if any changes need to be made and analyze to make sure your electrical system is prepared for an EV charging station.
  3. Placement and installation: Having a new circuit installed, we will then be able to determine where to best place and install the EV charge station.
  4. Post-installation: Experience the convenience of having your car charged if it’s for your home or have your clients enjoy the services you’re providing them as a business. If you have any issues or need tips on how to use your equipment, we can help.
