How To Add An Electric Vehicle Home Charging Station

If you’re considering adding an electric vehicle home charger to your home in Great Falls, there are some things you’ll want to consider. Fortunately, the process is pretty simple and we’re more than happy to walk you through everything you need to know about an electric vehicle home charger. Without further ado, here are the steps you’ll want to take if you’re interested in an electric vehicle home charging station:

1. Research Charging Levels

Learn about the different charging levels and determine which one best fits your Chantilly lifestyle. Level 1 charging can typically utilize a regular wall outlet but will take much longer to charge. Level 2 charging will charge your Mercedes-EQ much quicker but will likely require professional installation.

2. Prepare Your Garage

Once you’ve decided on charging levels, it’s a good idea to prepare your garage for professional installation. Cleaning out your garage and organizing it as much as possible will make it easier when the technician comes to inspect your garage.

3. Find a Charging Station

Your next step would be to begin researching different charging stations. We recommended the ChargePoint Home Flex wallbox for your Mercedes-EQ.
