Electric vehicle EV ownership has skyrocketed as consumers are drawn to the vehicles’ performance, cutting edge technology and lower operating costs, carbon emissions and maintenance requirements. EV drivers rely on home, work, and public charging stations to keep their vehicles charged. This has led to nationwide EV charger installation projects by both private and public entities.
If you are looking for a nationwide EV charger installer, consider an experienced electrical contractor with the skills to perform a comprehensive inspection to ensure your property can support the required EV charging hardware and meet applicable codes. They should also be knowledgeable about your electric utility’s current and planned EV Charger programs to help you take advantage of available incentives for EV charging installations on your site.
When choosing a nationwide EV charger installation company, look for one with a wide network of certified-installers who are trained to properly install and service the equipment. This is important to minimize the downtime and risk of service interruptions.

A well-sited EV charger installation is critical for safe operation and ease of use. For example, it is recommended that a Level 2 charger be installed in a garage or other protected area where the temperature is typically stable. The EV charging cords and connector should be placed where they will not interfere with foot traffic.
Public and commercial property owners can offer EV charging as a customer service to their customers, employees or tenants, or can generate an additional revenue stream by charging for public use. EV charging can be a great way to attract new clients and keep existing ones.
In 2021, New York State began installing its first DC fast-charging sites in partnership with local businesses and public agencies as part of President Biden’s National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Formula Program, or NEVI. NEVI’s goal is to put DC fast chargers, which replenish an EV battery to 80 percent in about 30 minutes, at intervals along high-traffic corridors. The sites are being built using NEVI funds from Title 23, U.S.C., and other federal funding sources.
