Electric cars are becoming very common. If you have visited a car lot lately, you will see the selection has increased dramatically and Prius is no longer the only game in town. It is the future of cars and there is no time like the present to start learning the ropes of using an electric car for your transportation needs. A Santa Monica electrician is here to help you make the most of your new electric car or make your old one a little better with the installation of a Level II charger at your home. The team at The Electric Connection can assist you in getting the most out of your gas-saving car.
One of the problems with electric cars is their inability to drive long stretches on the battery alone. They are great for commuters with short distances to travel. Most electric cars can go anywhere between 40 to 100 miles on a single charge. Unfortunately, it can take a full day for a car to get a full charge when using a Level I battery charger. An electrician in Santa Monica can install the 240-volt outlet you need to run the Level II or fast charger in your own garage. This means, every day you get home from work, you plug in the car and it is fully charged and ready to go the following morning.
The faster chargers are a bit more expensive up front, but when you factor in the gas savings, it is an investment that will pay off over time. It is also more convenient in general. Because the charger requires more electricity to run, you will need an electrician. Santa Monica homeowners can decide where they want to charge their car and have the outlet installed nearby. Give The Electric Connection a call today and schedule your installation.
