Plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs), are motor vehicles, powered either entirely or partially but rechargeable batteries. The batteries recharge when connected to an electric grid. Depending on the station, a full charge can take anywhere from 30 minutes, up to 18 hours! Because the average Chicagoan has a 22 mile daily commute, PEVs are becoming much more common.
According to to "Drive Electric Chicago", (supported by the Department of Energy), the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic
Opportunity (DCEO) will refund up to 50% of the equipment and installation costs!
In addition to reduced costs for installation, by offering a public PEV charging station, you can increase the value of your building as well as enhance your building's reputation for being environmentally friendly!
An electrical vehicle charging station is simply a station that supplies electricity for the recharging of electrical vehicles and plug-in hybrids. MAX Electric LLC will install appropriate circuitry (amperage/voltage) to the location of equipment and connections to complete circuitry.
(Also known or referred to as EV charging stations, electric recharging points, or EVSE-Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment).
At Max Electric LLC, our electrical experts will inspect your main distribution panel to make sure we select a breaker that will match the panel's UL listing and size requirements. We will then install appropriate circuitry, (voltage) to the location of equipment and connections to complete the circuitry. If exterior circuitry is needed, our commercial electricians will size and install appropriate conduits at NEC depth underground and will use correct wiring (THHN) suitable for installation in conduits.
