  2. Purchase and Install

    • 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 hard-wired charger, we recommend getting help with the installation from your licensed electrician.

    * A licensed electrician has a South Carolina LLR residential electrical contractor's license.
