Electric Car Charging Station Installation in
Kenilworth, IL

At Current Electric, we understand the importance and convenience of having your own car charging station installed at home. As we should, since our company is adept at installing Tesla chargers throughout the state, and we install more of them than all other varieties of charging stations.

In fact, Tesla recommends Current Electric over all other electricians in our area. We also pride ourselves on our expertise surrounding the installation of any number of different EV charging stations- so no matter what type of vehicle you have, we can help keep it running.

In-Home EV Car Charger Installations in Kenilworth, IL

Electric vehicles are valuable for a number of reasons, including the opportunity they give us to reduce both our carbon footprint and transportation costs. Public EV charging stations may be convenient and necessary, but they cut into the money you are saving by using an EV, and they are not nearly as convenient as having a level 2 charger at your home or business. This also allows you to ensure your vehicle is always ready to hit the road.

At Current Electric, we are experts in the field of EV charging stations. Our affordable rates and specialized service allows us to provide exceptional customer service and reliable installations every time.

Tesla Chargers in Kenilworth, IL

Teslas have a proprietary NEMA 14-50 plug that attaches to a Tesla Wall Connector. Your electrical panel will determine how fast this wall connector charges your car. For example, only about 5 to 11 miles of charge time is provided per hour when using a 15 amp circuit breaker.

Circuit breakers up to 60 amps offer Generation 3 Tesla charger compatibility, which provides 44 miles of range for the Model 3, 30 miles for the Model X, and 24 miles for the Model S (per each hour of charge).

If your circuit breaker is preventing you from getting the charging speed you need, our team of expert electricians at Current Electric can upgrade it as part of your EV charger installation.

When installing an EV charging station, you must obtain a permit from the local authorities. Once plans are approved, our team works to finish the project quickly and efficiently. Following its completion, your local inspection authority will inspect your new charging station to ensure it meets every local guideline.

Current Electric always provides expert installations that are up to code in your area, meaning that these inspections are typically just a formality. After your new Tesla charger is approved by the inspector, we will submit photos to Tesla for their records.

Other Types of EV Chargers

While many of our customers want a Tesla brand charger installed for their vehicle, there are many other electrical vehicles on the market today, which means there is a need for other types of EV charges, as well.

No matter which type of vehicle you have, we can help you choose the best EV charger for your needs and perform a reliable installation. While proprietary connectors are used exclusively for Tesla chargers, special adapters can be used to charge your Tesla on other types of stations. Therefore, as long as you have a level 2 charger in place, you will be able to charge any type of electrical vehicle at home.

The Newest Technology

If an electrical panel does not have enough power to support an EV charger, Current Electric offers an opportunity for customers to upgrade their electrical system with an Open Charging Station Controller (OCC).

An OCC is designed to shut off your charger before the electrical current flowing through the panel reaches the maximum level. The OCC automatically restarts the charger when more electrical current becomes available. This allows your vehicle to receive a full charge while ensuring that your panel is not damaged in the process. Installing an OCC is much more affordable than a complete electrical system upgrade.

As the first company in Illinois to install an OCC, Current Electric has extensive experience working with these types of devices. We are proud to offer our customers the most advanced installations and upgrades available when it comes to all types of EV charging stations in Kenilworth, IL.

Car Charger Installation Cost

The average cost for an EV charging station installation is about $2,500, but pricing can vary based on several factors, such as:

  • The amperage draw of the charger
  • The distance from the electrical panel to the parked car
  • How complicated the electrical route is from the panel to the charger
  • The amount of amperage left in the panel to power the charger

Why Make the Switch?

Electric charging stations in Kenilworth are a great addition to any location where you frequently store your electric vehicle, such as your home, business, or other commercial property. Switching from your gas vehicle to an electric car means you will never stop for gas again, or pay for it. Switching to an EV saves drivers roughly ⅔ on their transportation costs- and this doesn’t include the reduction in maintenance costs.

Electric vehicles also do not produce emissions on the road, helping to reduce ecological damage, pollution, and risks to public health.
