EV Charging Station Installer
The electric vehicle industry is growing and it is growing fast! Just as a reference, by 2030 it is expected that over 18 million EVs will be on the roads only in the U.S. However, to deploy such a large number of EVs in this country, there must be an electrical infrastructure that supports the development of this industry.
Other regions, such as Europe, are more densely populated and have a smaller territory than the U.S, however, by 2021 there were nearly 1.3 million charging points installed across Europe while in the US there were only 0.3 million. This means a lot of work needs to be done. This is why EV charger installers will become an essential part of this industry.
EV charging stations contractors are companies licensed to install EV charging stations. Electric vehicle charging station installers make sure that these stations comply with state and federal laws as well as with corresponding electric code standards like the National Electric Code. Although there are established standards, ensuring that the selected contractor has experience installing the type or level of EV charger that you need is a good tip to keep in mind for the successful development of a project. But, what exactly can EV car charger installers help you with?
What Do EV Charging Station Installers Do?
EV charging point installers handle all the installation and maintenance procedures for EV stations. They carry the project development starting from the design phase, passing through procurement and construction of the system. To install an EV station, the electrical contractor needs to provide any or all of the following services:
- Perform Site Survey Analysis: Assess the existing electrical infrastructure including electrical service capacity and availability for more power from the utility.
- Local Permits: Apply for the necessary paperwork to expand the utility service capacity or to apply for federal, state, or local utility incentives and permits.
- Procurement: Purchase the required equipment (breakers, wires, EVSE, panels, etc)
- Cable Trenching: Analyze cable trenching from the sub-panel or main panel source to the charging station locations.
- Electrical Installation Work: Including conduit, pipes and wiring running. Also adding necessary protection devices.
- Main Panel Upgrades: Upgrade the main panel board rating and capacity to add extra circuit branches for EV charging stations.
- Mounting Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment
- EVSE Commissioning
- Perform Final Inspection
- Provide Support and Maintenance
The Benefits of Working with EV Charging Station Installers
Working with certified EV charger installers has its rewards as we can see below.
Receiving assessment from a specialized company or expert on the subject is always an important plus, with EV charging stations the same concept applies. Electric charger installers are capable of making a proper site assessment to evaluate the ideal configuration to install EV stations at your business, giving you insight on the best model options for your needs.
While some EV charging stations such as the Cyber Switching CSE1 are quite simple to install, deploying a large number of stations can add a substantial load demand on your electrical infrastructure. Commercial EV charger installers are prepared to determine the best possible route to avoid unnecessary changes by using valuable resources such as the EVMC.
Easy Permitting and Commissioning
One of the most complicated processes of any EPC project is to get the permit packages fast and right. Experienced electric vehicle charger installers will save you a lot of time of going back and forth on permit requirements while at the same time will allow you to make sure the commissioning process is done properly.
Why Choose Us?
Cyber Switching has almost 30 years of experience in the market, developing a range of valuable products and working with installers of multiple electrical components. Our experience in the industry has led us to work with multiple certified electric charging station installers who have received our assessment throughout the entire process to make sure the installation process is done correctly. The CSE11 is also very easy to install and commission for any certified EV charging point installer, which makes the process fluent and easy to follow for both the installer and the client.
Can the CSE1 Be Installed Outdoors?
Yes it can. The Cyber Switching EV charging station is rated to work for indoor and outdoor installations. Manufactured with a Type 3 enclosure protection level.
Is the CSE1 Certified?
Yes, the CSE11 is ETL listed and has been designed according to multiple standards among others such as:
- UL 2594 Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment:
- UL 2251: Plugs, Receptacles and couplers for electric vehicles
- UL 2231-2: Personnel Protection Systems for Electric Vehicle (EV) Supply Circuits: Particular Requirements for Protection Devices for Use in Charging Systems.
- UL 1998: Software in Programmable Components
- NFPA 70 Article 625: National Electrical Code, Electric Vehicle Charging System.
What Are The Benefits of Pre-Commissioned AmpUp Integration?
Enjoy a fast commissioning procedure with one of the most recognized OCPP software of the EV industry. Let the user enjoy full monitoring capabilities that will include real-time energy data analysis, load management configurations according to relevant Time-of-Use utility rates, time schedule reservation for EV charging, RFID authentication, and more!
What Should I Consider When Installing Multiple Electric Vehicle Charging Stations?
Electric vehicle charging point installers need to consider several factors at the time to perform a site survey or a commercial EV charging station design. Some include potential charging point locations, proximity to supply panels, project costs, circuit breakers size, trenching distance and more.
Among them, evaluating the existing supply feeder and available electrical capacity is one of the most important ones. Especially in commercial projects for EV fleets, there may be the need to update the electrical infrastructure in order to proceed with the installation of multiple charging points. While this approach is feasible for a certified EV charger installer, it may also be more expensive.
Analyze the possibility of adding an EV Management Controller to your project in order to connect multiple charging points and feed them using the existing available capacity.
