How does a home charging station work?

You do not need to ask permission from your local authority to install a charging station at home. You can purchase one yourself. You choose the charge point and arrange for it to be installed. Installing a charge point is an electrical installation. High voltage and current are used, which can make it dangerous to install the charge post yourself. In addition, cables must be pulled, the charge point is connected and adjustments must be made in the meter box. This requires special certifications. Therefore, it is best to use a certified installer. You choose the charge point yourself. However, there are many different charging stations on the market, so it can be difficult to choose the right one. Not sure what kind of charging station to buy? An installer can give you good advice.
