We ask to see images of your panel so we can ensure there is enough space and power to install your electric vehicle charger.
Please send us an image of all of the circuit breakers in your main panel. If you need to take one up close image of the top half and another of the bottom half, please do so. We need to see all of the circuit breakers and the numbers on them. If you have a subpanel, we will also need to see images of this as well.
The goal is to be able to clearly see each and every panel you have and read all the numbers on each breaker. This will allow us to tell you if you have enough room in your panel(s) to install the charger without any additional work.
Here are some examples of images:
Main Breaker / Service Disconnect
There is a Main Breaker which determines the total ampacity being provided to your electrical service. This breaker can sometimes have a label next to it of “Main” or “Service Disconnect” in your panel. We need to see this breaker and clearly see the number that is on it. It usually has a 100 or 200 on it but may also have a 125, 150 or 175. The main breaker is usually a larger breaker that is sometimes separated from the rest of the breakers in your main electrical panel. When it is separated from the rest of the breakers, it is usually at the very top of the panel. If you are in a townhome, your main breaker is probably located outside somewhere next to your meter.
