EV Charger Installation: Why You Need a Licensed Electrician in Minnesota

As electric vehicles (EVs) become increasingly popular, the need for reliable home charging solutions has never been more critical. This is where the expertise of a licensed electrician becomes invaluable, especially when installing EV chargers in your home.

Choosing the Right EV Charger: Level 2 and Level 3 Chargers

Selecting the right charger for your EV is crucial. At H&S, we specialize in installing both Level 2 and Level 3 chargers, catering to different needs and preferences.

Our team can help you choose the best charger based on your vehicle’s requirements, your charging habits, and your home’s electrical capacity.

Level 2 EV Charger

These chargers are ideal for home use. They charge faster than the standard Level 1 chargers that come with most EVs, making them a convenient option for overnight charging.

Level 3 EV Charger

Also known as DC Fast Chargers, these are best suited for commercial settings or for EV owners who need rapid charging. They can charge an EV battery to 80% in just 30 minutes.
