EV Charging Stations in Northern & Central New Jersey
Stay Charged With the Expert Electricians in NJ
As battery technology has evolved and companies like Tesla, Nissan, and Chevrolet have made electric vehicles increasingly viable alternatives to gasoline-powered cars, their popularity has skyrocketed.
Now there are dozens of battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) on the market, and the segment continues to grow. According to Car and Driver magazine, some of the most popular models include:
- Tesla Model Y
- Tesla Model 3
- Ford Mustang Mach 3
- Chevrolet Bolt EV/EUV
- Volkswagen ID.4
- Nissan Leaf
- Audi e-tron
- Porsche Taycan
- Tesla Model S
- Hyundai Kona Electric
While many of these vehicles can be charged using a Level 1 charger on a standard 120-volt household outlet, the process can take up to 24 hours or longer, making it necessary to use commercial charging stations frequently.
To charge faster, many EV owners opt to install a 240-volt Level 2 charger that can reduce charge times to as little as 8 hours, according to the Kelley Blue Book. In most cases, a licensed electrician will be required to install a Level 2 charger in your New Jersey home.
When you need to charge your EV faster, turn to our experts at Service Professionals for an EV charging station installation. Our licensed electricians can recommend the best charging station for your needs and install it according to local codes.
Our company serves homeowners throughout northern and central New Jersey, and we offer on-time service with upfront pricing and a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Can I Install an EV Charging Station in My Home?
Most modern homes can support a Level 2 charging station, but if you have a 100-amp service panel or below, you may need to upgrade to a 150 or 200-amp service panel, or higher in some cases. Then, a 240-volt circuit of 30 to 50 amps will be required to power the EV charging station.
According to the State of New Jersey, if you have an existing 240-volt circuit with sufficient amperage for your EV charging station, such as an electric dryer or welder receptacle, it can be used with the appropriate adapters to power your charging station without needing a permit.
If you need a new 240-volt circuit or need to upgrade the existing 240-volt circuit, a permit and a licensed electrician will be required.
At Service Professionals, we can provide all the services you need for your EV charging station installation, from new 240-volt circuits to service panel upgrades.
Where Should I Install My EV Charging Station?
Most EV owners opt to install electronic car charging stations in the garage, where they’re out of the weather and there is easy access to the car and the electrical system. Some EV charging stations can be installed outside, on an exterior wall or pedestal, and are rated to handle the elements.
Whether you’re installing your electronic car charging stations in the garage or outdoors, you can count on our team at Service Professionals for a safe, high-quality installation.
