What’s Needed for an EV Charger?
Installing an EV charger does require some careful planning. Because EV chargers require a 240-volt connection, your home must have access to a 240-volt electrical connection (most modern homes do). This typically means running a new, specialized 240-volt circuit from your electrical panel to where you plan on installing your charger in order to power it, and nothing else should be on this 240-volt connection. Our Kansas City EV charger installation pros highly recommend having a professional electrician install this new circuit in order to make sure it is added safely and properly to your existing grid.
EV chargers also require a proper place for mounting. Depending on the model of charger you purchase, your charger may require a minimum amount of clearance around it. If you plan on installing your outlet in an outdoor location, you must install a weatherproof charger and ensure that all electrical connections adhere to outdoor use codes and guidelines.
