One of the biggest obstacles to owning an electric vehicle (EV) is the hassle of charging. While more public infrastructure is popping up around the state, as an EV owner, it would be far more convenient to come home after a long day and set the vehicle to charge overnight. At Kollmann Electric, we can help you with your desire to switch to an environmentally friendly EV by providing you with the convenience of a home electric vehicle charging station.
Kollman Electric in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, wants charging your EV to be as easy as parking any other vehicle. We know you need consistent and reliable charging times so you can plan your days and nights. Most owners want to know about the fastest charger they can get, but there are many factors that come into play when charging your EV, including:
It is a myth that you cannot have an EV in a cold climate. While colder temperatures can slightly reduce charging times, they charge just fine. In freezing weather, EV batteries benefit from regular top-ups, which is all the more reason to have one conveniently at home. Based on these conditions, the electric vehicle charging station for your home in the Oshkosh area should work for the EV you own (or plan to own) and provide some room for additional vehicles with higher charging rates. With today’s technology, Kollman Electric can make that a reality for you.
A Level-2 charger requires a 240-volt electric service. At Kollman Electric, our certified electricians can complete the electric vehicle charging installation for you. We can ensure your home’s wiring and EV home charging station comply with all the local, state and national codes. This ensures the safety of you and your family, as well as your beautiful new vehicle and home charger.
Installation time will vary depending on the amount of work that needs to be done to ensure the install complies with regulations. Electrical service upgrades will take longer than a straight charger installation, but in the long run, a Level-2 charger will save you time and money.
Electric vehicles are known for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, but they also have fewer moving parts. This means they require less maintenance and don’t need oil changes. With your electric vehicle home charger, you can charge your battery on the schedule recommended by the manufacturer, ensuring great mileage and long battery life.
