We support electric car owners to save money and do their part for the environment.

Driving an electric vehicle equates to spending about $1 per gallon of gas.

When Electri-Serve installs an electric vehicle charging station in your home, you can be sure your car has what it needs to get you where you’re going – without a longer charging wait time with a more traditional outlet!

For non-commercial uses, Level 1 or Level 2 charging should meet your needs.

Keep in mind that the more power supplied through the charger, the faster the vehicle’s battery will charge. Here are the differences between the two types of charging available for your electric vehicle.

Level 1 Denver EV charging stations.

Level one is achieved through a 120v outlet. At this level, you can expect between four and five miles of driving per hour of charging. More power means faster charging so consider your average daily mileage.

If you have a long commute or cover many miles from day-to-day, you might find that level 1 charging takes too long and is impractical for your driving needs. If that’s the case, you should choose a level 2 charging station.

Level 2 Denver EV charging stations.

Level two charging is achieved through a 240v outlet and requires the installation of additional charging equipment. Your EV dealer can help you choose the equipment that is best for your vehicle and for your driving needs. Using level 2 charging delivers between 25 and 30 miles of driving per hour of charging.

Comparing Level 1 and Level 2 EV charging stations.

The more power supplied through the charger, the faster the vehicle’s battery will charge. Typical charging time when charging at 120v is approximately five hours. Typical charging time when charging at 240v is approximately two to two-and-a-half hours.

When considering the 240v circuit and outlet, aside from faster charging times, the increasing popularity of electric vehicles means that adding a 240v circuit and outlet to your garage will add value to your property and would be considered an amenity to a home buyer.

Contact us today, and we will help you choose the right EV Charger for your specific needs. Your Denver Electricians since 1969!

What we need to know when we come out for the estimate:

  • The amperage and voltage of the charger.
  • Your preferred location for the charging station. (see below for more info)
  • Our estimator will want to look at your electrical panel to determine whether there is space in your breaker box and whether your existing service has the capacity for an additional 240v circuit.

Once the necessary information has been gathered, we will provide you with a free estimate for the proper installation of your EV charging station.

Where should I locate my electric vehicle charging station?

Most EV home chargers come with cords that are between 20 and 25 feet in length.

The National Electrical Code (NEC) limits charging cords to a maximum of 25 feet, and the NEC does not allow extension cords to be used as permanent wiring.

Be sure that your vehicle will be close enough to the charging station to allow for slack in the charging cord. This will ensure a full charge and prevents possible damage to the charging station, the car, or both.
