Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

Trust in Our Highly Trained and Experienced Electricians for Your Home's Electrical Needs

There are different types of home charging stations. Knowing which one is right for you depends on a few variables. While each type has pros and cons, it comes down to three main factors:

  • What your homes electrical system can support (and if it makes sense to upgrade capacity first)
  • The charging compatibility most suitable for the make and model of your car
  • How quickly you want it to charge

Always Trust a Professional for an EV Charger Installation


Safety Is Critical

Installing an EV charger in your garage is a technical process that requires a highly trained electrician. Cutting corners or any minor mistakes, because we're talking about electrical work, could lead to an electric shock or a fire.

Our trained electricians will learn about your needs and advise on options best suited for your lifestyle.

The Benefits of Charging Your EV at Home


Stopping at the gas station is inevitable for conventional cars and trucks, which brings wasted time, impulse buys, and high costs of fuel. By charging your EV at home, you can skip this ritual and realize some great benefits:

  • Greater convenience
  • No waiting in line or wasted time
  • No unnecessary impulse buys or snacks
  • Lower energy costs
  • No fuel smells or messes

Choosing the Ideal EV Charger for Your Kennewick Home


Although you can comfortably charge most electric cars overnight with a 120-volt Level 1 charger, if you have a long commute, make lots of short trips, or just drive often, upgrading to a 240-volt Level 2 charger can make owning an electric vehicle far more convenient, and lets you skip the commercial Level 3 DC fast chargers and the lines to use them. When installing a Level 2 EV charger, there are a few factors to consider:

Panel Capacity

Make sure your service panel has the capacity to add a new 240-volt or 120-volt circuit that will be dedicated to your EV.

Installation Type

Many EV chargers are wall-mounted, but some can be installed in the driveway or other locations. Be sure to choose a weather-rated charger for outdoor locations.

Cable Type

Make sure your charging cable is long enough, rated for the application, and has the correct plug for your EV, such as the standard J1772 connector or proprietary ones for specific manufacturers.

Amperage

EVs have different charging requirements, with some needing as few as 15 amps, while some may need 40 or more. Consider the amperage draw you will need now and in the future, especially if you have multiple EVs and plan accordingly.

Our experts at Campbell & Company can recommend the best charger for your needs, and we can install the dedicated circuit that it requires.

EV Charger FAQs


How fast is a level 2 charging station?

While a 120-volt Level 1 charging station may take eight to 16 hours to charge an EV battery fully, a 240-volt Level 2 charger can do the job 5 to 7 times faster. This is ideal for busy families who need to use their EV often. At Campbell & Company, we can provide the circuits you need to charge your EV as fast as possible.

Can I install multiple EV chargers?

As long as your electrical service and electrical panel have the capacity, you can install one, two, or more EV chargers. Most homes have 100-, 150-, or 200-amp service, but higher amperage service is available in some areas. If you need an electrical panel upgrade for your EV charger, talk to our expert electricians at Campbell & Company.
