EV Charging | Portland, OR
Get a free estimate now for an EV charging station in Portland and the surrounding cities.
Electric vehicles are getting more popular every year. Not only can you save on the cost of fuel, but you can also help cut down on greenhouse gas emissions, which helps support the environment. The only problem? You need a convenient place to charge your vehicle. The good news is that Orient Electric is here to help with that. Even though Portland alone has 400+ public EV charging plugs, with an extra 800 in the greater metropolitan area, nothing beats the convenience of EV charging at home. As licensed, bonded, and insured EV charger installers in Portland, we’ve got you covered.
We can install EV charging stations for the following:
- And Many More!
Many cars can charge on 120-volts. However, it is a much slower charge than you get with a charging station. We can install an EV charging station in your desired location to suit your needs.
Before we install the charging station, we’ll evaluate your home’s electrical system to ensure it has capacity for the additional load. If needed, we may have to upgrade the panel or electrical service. After taking care of the wiring, we’ll mount the box, perform a few tests, and show you how to use your new charging station.
Electric Car Charger Installations
Our experienced electricians can install level one, two, or three chargers.
At Orient Electric, we are equipped to do either a level one, level two, or level three charger based on your needs. Level one chargers provide EV charging, but a charging station isn’t necessary. Rather, we’ll install a 240-volt or 120-volt outlet for your level one charger based on what it needs. Level one chargers are generally recommended for someone who isn’t using the EV every day and rather just for traveling. You can get about 5 to 12 miles per hour that your vehicle charges with a level one charger.
A level two charger, on the other hand, charges your vehicle fully while you’re sleeping, as there’s greater power coming in. That makes it the preferred option for people who drive an EV to work daily or need to charge a vehicle fast. If you’re interested in a level two charging station, we’ll put in a 240-volt circuit so that you can charge your vehicle quickly and at your convenience. With a level two charger, you can get roughly 20 to 60 miles for every hour your vehicle charges. You can’t get much better than that in a residential application.
A level three charger, also called a DC fast charger, is a more commercial type of charger for use in public areas with a low dwell time. We can provide you with a new service or a transformer to get you the 480-volt power needed for these chargers. With a level three charger, you can get the fastest charge rates available with the ability to completely charge your car in anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour.
“In an age where customer service seems dead, Orient Electric shines above the rest!! They helped us Hang Fans, Replace Light Fixtures, Wire our Hot Tub, Run Power to our Well, and even Fixed the Pump on the Septic System.
The crew Orient Electric sent out was friendly and respectful of our home & family, and they did excellent work! “
