How should I prepare at home before an EV charger installation?

There are several steps you should take before buying and installing an EV charger:

  1. Before buying a charger, know your EV battery capacity and the type of plug connector your EV has, to ensure the unit will have sufficient power and the correct configuration.
  2. Decide if you want to use a wall-mounted charging station or a portable Level 2 charging cord (which will require professional installation of a 240v NEMA outlet). Also, decide if a smart charger that connects to the Internet and the manufacturer’s mobile app is right for you.
  3. Complete the Qmerit Home Charging Assessment to be connected with a licensed, certified electrician in your area. You will answer a few questions about your home and submit a few pictures to receive an upfront price estimate for installation.
