- Level 2 EV chargers require a 240-volt power source. If you do not have a 240-volt power source where you are planning to plug in your charger, reach out to a licensed electrician* to install one for you.
- If you already have a 240-volt power source, talk to a licensed electrician to make sure the charger you are selecting will work correctly with your electrical system.
- Purchase and install the prequalified charger that you selected in step 1.
- Many stations have a plug-in and a hard-wired option. If you select a hardwired charger, we recommend getting help with the installation from your licensed electrician.
* A licensed electrician has a South Carolina LLR residential electrical contractors license.
