How To Wire A New Garage For Electric-Car Charging: What You Need To Know

Look for at least 24 Amps of charging capability; 40 Amps is best, but more expensive Charging rate should be at least 7.2 kilowatts, which will handle both Chevy Volts (3.3 or 3.6 kW) and higher-rate cars like Nissan Leafs and BMW i3s (6.6 and 7.2 kW, respectively) Make sure it has that NEMA 6-50 plug on it! Some charging stations are "dumb," while others come from makers (e.g. ChargePoint) that offer online connections between your charger and a phone app and/or online site that will show you instant and cumulative charging statistics Ensure the cord is long enough to reach a car parked outside the garage. We'd suggest 16 feet at minimum, and 25 feet is well worth the extra cost.
