Electric Vehicle Charger Installation in Atlanta
MD Electrical Integration provides electric vehicle charger installation in Atlanta. Electric vehicles or plug-in hybrids are a terrific way to save money on gas while reducing your environmental effect, especially for people with shorter commutes. While you may charge your car at home using a conventional outlet, a specialized electric vehicle charger will make the process considerably faster and allow you to avoid using public chargers as much as possible.
MD Electrical Integration is thrilled to provide our Atlanta clients with the convenience of a full-power, Level 2 charger in their own home. Our qualified electricians will install the circuit and equipment needed to charge your car in a fraction of the time it would take to charge it using a conventional outlet.
You will be able to effortlessly charge your vehicle at night, and thanks to a timer, your charger will be shut off automatically, keeping your energy costs down. When you are ready to purchase a charger, you will have your choice of Level 1 or Level 2 models. Level 1 chargers are the same outlets you use to power your electronics, and they will add hours to the length of your journey. Level 2 chargers are more powerful, and they can add up to 40 miles of range to your electric vehicle every hour.
The Benefits of Installing an Electric Vehicle Charger
Although driving an electric car is less expensive than buying gasoline for a conventional vehicle, it takes a long time to recharge the batteries after a journey. Most vehicles come equipped with a Level 1 charger, which can be plugged into a conventional 120-volt outlet but can take up to 18 hours to completely charge a vehicle, depending on battery capacity. A dedicated Level 2 charger operates on a 240-volt circuit and may provide your car with more power in less time.
Level 2 chargers can recharge an electric vehicle much faster than Level 1, taking only a few hours to charge a vehicle’s battery. Although Level 2 charging stations are more expensive to install than Level 1 chargers, they are often the only option for charging an electric car at home due to the large amount of power required.
We install charging stations for a variety of electric car models, including Tesla, Leaf, Bolt, and others.
