1. Select an Electric Vehicle Home Charger (AKA Charging Level)

When you research electric vehicle home chargers, you see that you'll have two distinct options for your Nashua garage. Review your choices to prepare your home for an electric vehicle:

  • Level 1 EVCharging Station: Electric vehicle charging batteries with a Level 1 charger can take a day or more to complete. 
  • Level 2 EVCharging Station: Electric vehicle charging batteries with a Level 2 can take a few hours to complete. In many cases, you can gain 60-200 miles of range in just 20-30 minutes of Level 2 charging. 

2. Ready Your Garage for Your Electric Vehicle Charging Station

If you haven't had the chance to take on your spring cleaning, prepping your home for an EV is the ideal time. You'll want to clear the clutter from your garage to ensure you have adequate space for your EV and charging station. 

3. Find Your Power Panel & Assess Consumption

Your home has a power panel that's responsible for sending electricity through the entire building. It will offer a rating for a maximum amount of current flow measured in Amperes. Generally, new homes in the Stratham area are equipped with a 100 Amp power panel. You'll want to assess your power usage before installing an EV charger. You don't want to overload the electric distribution panel. 

4. Hire an Electrician

Next, get in touch with an electrician. You can voice any questions or concerns you have about your power consumption at this point. This is also a good time to have them install a dedicated 240-volt plug or add a hardwired circuit back to the power panel. In most cases, this job costs only a few hundred dollars but can be up to $3,000 if your power panel needs an upgrade. 

5. Buy Your Electric Vehicle Home Charger & Have it Installed

Once you've consulted with your electrician, you can pick out your EV charging station and have it installed. You can also work with our Audi e-tron® specialists to decide what charging system is right for you.
