Electric Car Charging Station Installers in Grand Rapids, MI

Enjoy the Convenience of a Residential EV Charger Today!

Electric cars on the market today offer great range with plenty of amenities, and they’re ideal for anyone who does a lot of city driving or has a commute of 100 miles or less.

They can take quite a while to charge, though. Especially if you rely on a Level 1 charger that plugs into a standard 120-volt outlet at your home. If you want shorter, more convenient charging, consider installing a 240-volt Level 2 electric car charger.

Service Professor can help you upgrade to a Level 2 electric vehicle charger in your Grand Rapids home. For your safety, only a reputable electrician should install an EV charger. At Service Professor, our licensed electricians have plenty of experience.

They can recommend the best electric car charging station for your needs, and we can complete any upgrades necessary to install it in your home.

Charge faster with a Level 2 EV charger from Service Professor. Call 616-871-1900 to schedule your EV charging station installation in Grand Rapids today.

The Benefits of Having Your Own Car Charging Station

Stopping at a gas station or a commercial EV charging station to top off your battery can waste a lot of time, not to mention money. By installing your own Level 2 EV charging station at home, you can:

  • Make driving your electric car more convenient
  • Reduce the time spent at gas stations or chargers
  • Save money on charging, snacks, and drinks
  • Enjoy great rebates from your electric provider

In Grand Rapids, Consumers Energy offers a rebate of up to $500 for installing an EV charger, plus a $10 monthly discount for charging your EV overnight when electrical demand is lower. DTE Energy offers similar savings.

Do I Need To Upgrade My Electrical Panel for an EV Charger?

A Level 2 electric car charging station can use up to 50 amps of power at 240 volts. Most homes in the Grand Rapids area have 100- to 200-amp electrical service, and in many cases, this will be plenty of power to support both the EV charger and the rest of the appliances in the home.

If your home has mostly electric appliances instead of gas, however, you may need to upgrade your electrical service.

Things like electric stoves, water heaters, and home heating systems can draw large amounts of electricity. This can mean a 100-amp home may need to upgrade to 200-amp electric service to support an EV charger, or a 200-amp home may need to upgrade to 400-amp service.

Our experts at Service Professor can provide all the upgrades necessary for an EV charger, from dedicated 240-volt circuits to electrical panel upgrades and service upgrades.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where Can I Install a Car Charging Station?

The most common place to install an EV charging station is in a garage, where power is easily accessible, and the charger is protected from the elements. Weatherproof wall or pedestal-mounted EV chargers are also available that can be installed outside the garage, in a car port, or in your driveway.

How Long Does it Take to Fully Charge a Car at Home?

Recharge times will vary based on the EV model, how empty the battery is, and its total capacity. A 120-volt Level 1 EV charger can take anywhere from 40 to 50 hours to fully charge an electric car battery, while a 240-volt Level 2 charging station can reduce that time to between four and 10 hours.

Do EV Charging Stations Use a Lot of Electricity at Home?

Level 2 EV chargers can use anywhere from 7,000 to 12,000 watts while operating, which can increase your electrical usage significantly. Even so, it can cost substantially less to recharge an electric car compared to the fuel costs for a gas or diesel vehicle.
