Electric cars are definitely the way of the future for car manufacturers. There are many considerations that go into purchasing an electric vehicle. The main consideration is the size of the service in your home. The load may exceed the capacity of the service. This can lead to the service being overloaded, or in some cases, a home service being shut off. What can you do?
It is important to remember that when charging, if the charge is too high, it could potentially cause damage to the charger or the battery. If this happens, then you could end up with an expensive repair bill, not to mention a poor experience. As mentioned before, if the amperage is too low, the battery will not be able to take a full charge, this will also be costly. Rate Load Calculation (RLC) can be used to determine the amperage that can be safely used on your existing service. Kent offers RLC’s for free.
“Kent electric came today to quote a job for pendant lighting. They were able to provide a reasonable quote and do the work right on the spot. While he was here, I had questions for Victor regarding other small projects. He was able to give me honest feedback about what I could handle myself, and an idea on cost for items I'd need a professional for.
Their work was clean, fast, and came out great. Couldn't be happier!”Denise S.
