Can I use my own electrician?
Many times a dealership prefers to work with their own electrical contractor. For cases like this, InCharge allows the dealer to follow prescribed requirements for the placement of the charging equipment and self-contracted electrical infrastructure that meets the National Electrical Code. InCharge will verify that the infrastructure was installed correctly through a review of the permit package and photographs, among other things. Once this review is completed, InCharge will ship the dealer the charging equipment and send technicians to your facility to do the final equipment commissioning, testing, final closeout.
What does InCharge need to determine if I have enough power for the EV chargers?
InCharge will need 12 months of electric bills, pictures of the main electrical panel and service and the chargers that you want to install. Sometimes we will need to do a site visit if the equipment is older.
How long does it take to receive my quotation after my site assessment?
The average time to receive your quotation is two to four weeks. If a utility upgrade is required this will take longer.
My dealership allows public access to the area where I’m installing charging equipment. Can I limit access to the EV charger?
Our software, In-Control, allows dealers to limit access by requiring a PIN or monetizing the station for credit card processing or RFID cards that reimburses the dealer for utilization.
