The Charging Station Principle
The term charging station is a bit of a misnomer when it comes to electric vehicles. the actual components to charge the car are built into the electric vehicle (EV). What the charger does is provide a method by which you can tap into your home’s electrical grid to provide electricity, called the Electric Vehicle Service Equipment (EVSE).

The Right Choice of Charger
There are several devices to charge an electric vehicle, from the base charging station, known as level 1, to the very fast DC charging station. Most electric car companies recommend a 240v circuit as it charges your car more efficiently in less amount of time. These chargers are generally referred to as level 2 EVSE’s (or Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment). Take the time to talk to your electrician about your energy needs to determine what’s best for your car.
Before installation, Electrika’s highly qualified electricians ensure that your home has the power to provide a charging station for your electric vehicle. If this is not the case, ask your electrician about what can be done to upgrade your electrical capacity in your home and how to go about doing this.
