Installing a Charging Station

Considering a Level 2 Charging Station? These steps will guide you through the typical process.

Step 1: Assessment

Have a licensed electrician determine whether electrical upgrades are needed for your home to handle the charging station, and how much those upgrades will cost.

Step 2: Permitting and Upgrades

If you need to upgrade, your electrician will obtain the necessary permits from your local government. You should also notify Duke Energy at 800-979-9145 so we can evaluate and upgrade your local transformer, if needed, to support the charging station.

Step 3: Installation and Inspection

Your electrician will install your charging station and schedule all inspections that your local government may require.

Step 4: Charge and Go

After the installation and inspections are complete, you can bring home your PEV, plug in, charge up and drive off!
