Get your EV home charging station installed

After determining which electrical vehicle (EV) to purchase, the next step is getting an at-home charging station set up.

Residential electric customers are eligible to receive a $250 instant rebate on a Level 2 Charger when purchased from SRP Marketplace.

Step 1: Determine what type of charging station would work best for your EV and home.

Step 2: Contact SRP at (602) 236-8888 for information about the EV price plan and whether it’s a good fit for you.

Step 3: Install your charging station.

SRP recommends hiring a licensed electrician to install your charging station. When consulting with the electrician, here are some questions to ask:

  • Do I need to upgrade my electrical panel?
  • Is ventilation required?
  • What's the charging level?
  • How much does installation cost?
  • When will it be complete?
  • If required by your city, will the electrician submit all necessary permits and oversee inspections?

Note that permitting and inspection requirements may vary depending on where you live. Check with your city for more information. To assist your contractor and help simplify the permitting process, SRP has worked with local cities to create an EV Installation Plan File is a word document..

Types of at-home EV charging stations

Pure battery electric vehicles and faster, higher-voltage charging methods may require a home electrical panel upgrade in addition to a dedicated 240-volt circuit.

Level 1 (120 volts)

  • It uses the standard 120-volt outlet that typically won't require you to make modifications to your electric panels or home wiring. Confirm that your home's electrical panel is at least 15 or 20-amp, single pole by consulting with a licensed electrician.
  • Most plug-in hybrid EVs take four to six hours to fully charge.
  • A battery electric vehicle takes 12 to 24 hours to fully charge.

Level 2 (240 volts)

  • It increases the charge power two to four times and decreases the typical full charge time for a battery electric vehicle to four to eight hours.
  • It will likely require a new dedicated circuit from the electric panel to a wall location near the EV parking spot.
  • Consult with a licensed electrician to verify that your home has a two-pole 30 to 50-amp electrical circuit breaker panel.
