The end of the year is a great time to buy a new car. There are always huge discounts on the almost last year models. If you have been thinking about buying an electric car, this is the time to do it. There are plenty of tax incentives and rebates that go along with electric car ownership. You will save money on gas and get to say you are doing a little something for the environment. If you have made the decision to buy a new electric car, call your electrician in Florida as soon as you get home. The team at Elcon Electric can help you make your new car purchase a little more cost effective by installing a fast charging system for your car.
When you buy your car, you will likely be given the option of the standard, trickle charger that can take up to 24 hours to fully charge your car. This charger is easy to plug in to any outlet in the garage and is less expensive. However, it isn’t always the best option if you actually plan on driving your car on a daily basis and are hoping to take advantage of the option that does not require fuel. You need a Level II charging station that will return your car’s battery to a full charge in as little as six hours.
An electrician is needed so you can plug in the station in your garage. The outlet required to run that fast charger is basically the same as the outlet you would need for your dryer. This is a simple job for a certified electrician. The electrician will need to check your electric panel to ensure you have room to dedicate a breaker to the charging station. If you don’t, again, it is another upgrade that will get you on the road to saving money with your new car purchase.
