Is it possible to charge my car if I live in an apartment complex?
If multiple individuals in your apartment building have or want electric cars, ask your apartment management or owner if an electric vehicle charging station may be installed. This might also be a major selling feature for potential tenants. Have them contact their local electrician for assistance in determining the best solutions and ensuring excellent installation.
What is the best way to locate public charging stations?
The Department of Energy (DOE) maintains a database that lists all known charging stations. Major automakers have their own databases, but because their data comes from the DOE, it’s usually preferable to go straight to the DOE website. Third-party applications can also assist you in finding a charging station.
Is it safe to install a charging station in your home?
Yes, it is safe if you deal with a professional to have it fitted. The coupler or cable in a charging station is designed to guarantee that no energy flows through it until it is attached to a car that is actively charging. When plugged into a charging station, electric cars are also intended to not start or move.
What does it cost to install a charging station at my house?

Do I need electrical work done at my house if I want an EV charging station?
