How are home EV chargers installed?
We’ll send a qualified electrician to come and assess your home, determine the optimal location of your EV charging port, and connect the charger to your electrical supply, ensuring compliance with safety standards. This process typically takes a few hours, providing a quick and efficient installation.
Where will my home EV charger be installed?
Every home is different. However, our home EV charger technicians will ensure your charging port is strategically located for vehicle access and proximity to your electrical supply and Wi-Fi connection.
Why do EV chargers need Wi-Fi?
EV chargers require Wi-Fi for smart features like remote monitoring, scheduling, and integration with your home energy management systems, enhancing convenience. If you connect your Solar PV System to your home EV charger so you can charge your car via solar energy, Wi-Fi also offers the added benefit of monitoring and managing your energy production and EV charging remotely.
Can I install an EV charger myself?
It’s strongly recommended not to install a home EV charger yourself due to health and safety concerns, unless you’re a qualified professional. Rules and regulations should be followed to ensure a safe and compliant installation.
