We can ensuring the power supply, connections, and wiring to the charging device you supply are all working correctly to properly charge your electric vehicle.

Available Charging Levels

There are multiple levels of EV charging, and when choosing the right device for your home, there are a few things you must be aware of. After you have purchased the most cost-effective solution for your home, we can help you power your new device to ensure it is working as it should.  

There are three charging levels you can choose from:

  • Level one: This is the charger typically included with your EV purchase and can be used with a standard wall outlet. Replenishing 3-5 miles per hour, this is the slowest option.
  • Level two: Level two is a common choice for at-home charging because it often doesn’t need a complete electrical panel upgrade but only an additional circuit. With charging capabilities of 12-80 miles an hour, it’s ten times faster than level one.
  • Level three: For 3-20 miles per minute, a level three charger is the fastest, but it uses DC current instead of traditional AC current, so it requires a higher upfront cost. However, this could be beneficial if you replenish multiple electric vehicles with one charger.

Though the cost of charging your EV is dependent on the speed of your charger, it also depends on the times you charge. Many chargers can be set to begin during a specific time period when electricity is cheaper. Overnight and weekends typically offer lower electrical costs, depending on your utility provider. Count on Douglas Electric to provide cost-effective electrical power to your EV charger in Rancho Cordova.

EV Charger FAQs

Powering up an EV charger in your home can be a significant investment, so it’s normal for you to have questions. Here are the answers to frequently asked questions about chargers:

Are there incentives or rebates?

Currently, there is a federal EV charging tax credit for equipment, infrastructure, and installation of up to 30%. The state of California offers various rebates for level two chargers up to $10,000.

How much will running power to my EV charger cost?

After you have purchased the right EV charger for your needs, our team will provide a free estimate to inspect your current electrical system. The cost of our services will depend on the unique aspects of your property, such as if we find any outdated wiring or if we need to replace your electrical panel to support your new EV charger.  

Should I charge my EV every night?

This depends on how often you use your electric vehicle. We recommend you keep your vehicle charged at 20-80% and only charge when necessary. If your commute to work is relatively short, you may only need to charge two or three times a week.

If you still have questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to Douglas Electric. We’re part of this community and look forward to helping it grow with our quality services.
