Electric Vehicle Residential Charging Infrastructure. Is your home ready?

You may be considering purchasing an Electric Vehicle (EV). However, one of the key items you need to consider is whether your home electrical infrastructure can safely charge your vehicle via a type 1 or type 2 EV Supply Equipment (EVSE). This presentation will provide an overview of the current EV market, the electrical infrastructure requirements for adding a type 2 EVSE, the process to determine what may be needed to update your electrical infrastructure, if anything, and options you can use to meet the necessary requirements. The expansion of electric vehicle sales and manufacturing require our homes to be able to safely support the addition of electric vehicle charging systems. You will leave this presentation with that knowledge.
