O'Carroll Electric specializes in turnkey EV charger installations from design to construction for all aspects related to the ever changing and advancing EV space.
Underground feeders through asphalt or concrete foundations; circuits of any size power Level 3 chargers
Assembly and install - experience with all equipment manufacturers and in all environments
INCENTIVES & TAX FILINGS
All modern public charger require wifi connectivity and programming in order to transact and gather data
Installation are specific to their environment and our customers' goals, but follow a basic process - site reviews, design, construction, and federal/state filings.
1. Site Analysis
Site visit conducted by engineers and project manager; determine power availability, feed path, and eligibility for subsidies
2. Engineering & Design
Develop project design - transformer, main switchgear, feeders, excavation plans, and charger selection
Initiate excavation and site prep, install feeder conduits, set concrete, install chargers, pull wire, and establish charger connectivity
4. Subsidies & Incentives
Prepare relevant state and federal tax forms - realize available rebates, incentives, and subsidies. Form 8911.
LEVEL II CHARGERS
Level II chargers will be the most prolific charger - they are cost efficient and provide a charge within 4-5 hours. These chargers can operate on a single phase (240V) 240-volt circuit or a 3-phase 208V circuit. Level II chargers draw from
LEVEL III CHARGERS
Level III chargers demand an enormous amount of power from 125kw to 350kw each. These machines required skilled electricians to feed, install, and wire.
Level II chargers, and especially Level III, chargers require significant power. Depending on your existing electrical service and your electrification plans, charger installs may require a new electrical service.
Level 2 EV chargers use 240V AC power, typically found in homes and commercial buildings, to charge electric vehicles at a faster rate than Level 1 chargers.
Level 3 EV chargers, also called DC Fast Chargers, use 480V power to charge electric vehicles quickly, typically in 30 minutes or less.
Site prep for EV chargers includes assessing electrical capacity, determining the necessary number and type of chargers, and preparing the physical location for installation.
Electric service upgrades for EV include upgrading the electrical service panel and meter, and running new electrical lines to the charging station location.
