Installing an electric car charging station in Miami
For homeowners, you can choose not to depend on public charging stations available in the Miami area. Installing a home charging option can be both highly convenient and affordable.
You can get a level 2 charger that guarantees fast charging time. To do this, you would need to hire a professional electrician. Factors that will be considered before installing the charger in your Miami home include your electrical panel and where the car will be parked.
In homes like a condo or apartment, you will need permission from the HOA to install your home charger for EVs.
At the same time, you could skip the entire process and opt for a level 1 charger at home – which is slower – while supplementing often with level 2 or DC fast charging options in public locations.
Ensure you hire an electrician with a good reputation, transparency, and reasonable costs. If possible get a warranty for the installation.
