How To Install A BMW EV Home Charger

If you choose a BMW Wallbox or third-party EV charger, you will need to have it installed. It is always best to have a licensed electrician tackle the installation, as they will need to tie into your home’s pre-existing electrical system. Here are some key steps that need to be followed when installing a BMW EV charger:

  • Assess Electrical Capacity – You need a qualified electrician in your area to verify that your home’s electrical system can support the additional load of the EV charger. This involves looking at your home’s electrical panel and making sure that a dedicated 240v circuit breaker can be added to accommodate the load of the level 2 charger.
  • Choose the Installation Location – It’s important to place your BMW charger in a convenient location both to where you park your vehicle and to your home’s electrical system. This way, you will minimize the length of cable you require. You should also make sure the area is well ventilated.
  • Get Any Necessary Permits and Codes – In North Carolina, you are required to get a permit if you are going to be adding to or working on your home’s electrical system. It is important to ensure compliance with local electrical codes and obtain any necessary permits. A licensed electrician can assist you with getting these.

Bobby was able to advise on my project by the phone/text and provided a fair quote for a panel upgrade and Tesla charger installation. He was on time for the job and helped to sort out some tricky issues in our system. I would recommend him and will use him again.
