What‘s the Requirement to Install a Level 2 EV Charger?

by Nurzviy Energy, Inc. 26 Feb 2023
In the United States, the requirements for installing a level 2 EV charger may vary depending on local codes and regulations. However, there are some general requirements that are recommended to ensure safe and efficient charging:

Electrical service panel: The electrical service panel in your home must have enough capacity to accommodate the new load of the level 2 charger. Most level 2 chargers require a 240-volt circuit and a 40-amp or 50-amp circuit breaker.

Dedicated circuit: A dedicated circuit should be installed for the level 2 charger to avoid overloading other circuits in your home. This means that the circuit should be used only for the charger and not for any other appliances or outlets.

Wiring: The wiring should be rated for at least 240 volts and installed by a licensed electrician. The wiring should be sized to handle the maximum charging rate of the level 2 charger.

Location: The level 2 charger should be installed in a convenient location for charging your EV, but also protected from the elements and not in a location where it could be damaged.

Permits: Depending on your local regulations, you may need to obtain permits and inspections before installing a level 2 charger.

It is important to follow all local codes and regulations when installing a level 2 EV charger to ensure safe and efficient charging for your EV. Additionally, you may want to consider factors such as the charging rate of the charger, the length of the charging cable, and any additional features such as Wi-Fi connectivity or smart charging capabilities.
