Our experts were recently called out to perform a car charging station installation for a Boca Raton homeowner. The Reliable electricians showed up on time in their fully stocked truck, ready to do the job right. The client needed a 100 amp Tesla charging station put in 35 ft. from their electrical panel: this required a new outlet, rewiring, and a safety test of the device. At the end of the day, the installation was a complete success! Now this homeowner can re-charge their Tesla car over night and never need to worry about running out of juice!
So while we’re on the subject of electric car chargers, we thought we’d put together some information about electric car charging stations for South Florida homeowners to look through:
Benefits of Electric Car Charging Stations
Buying an electric car, as we all know, is an investment in efficiency and reduced carbon emissions. Over time, the savings you get from not having to go to the gas pump will cover the initial cost of purchase! An electric car charging station installation is an investment of a different kind: namely, it’s an investment in:
- Convenience– Although public electric car charging stations are becoming more popular in South Florida, you can never beat the simplicity of being able to “refuel” your vehicle in your own garage.
- Safety– Having your electric car charging station installed by a professional allows you to always re-charge your car safely at the amperage that it requires. Never risk running low while you’re on the go again!
- Efficiency– Reliable Electric can install an electric car charging station that will be perfectly sized to your electrical panel, just like we did for the client we spoke about above.
Are electric cars the future? Right now, it’s difficult to say…but the executives at Tesla Motors seem to believe there’s absolutely no doubt! They recently made the patent of their wildly successful Tesla car model “open-source,” meaning that other car manufacturers can now make and sell the same electric car model. When asked why they would allow others to have access to an innovation that could have made them millions as patent-owners, CEO of Tesla Motors Elon Musk said this: “We’re all in a ship, and the ship has some holes in it. If we’re bailing water out of it, and we have a great design for a bucket, then even if we’re bailing out way better than everyone else, we should probably still share the bucket design.” The point, of course, is that making more energy efficient vehicles isn’t about selling cars — it’s about saving our own future.
