Electric vehicles have many benefits that consumers are gravitating to. The main reason is that they do not consume fuel. So, there is an immediate impact on an individual’s pocketbook, especially with today’s erratic gas prices. Some of the other great perks of the new EVs are the performance. Some of the fastest vehicles in the world are now EVs. The performance these vehicles are producing sometimes match or even beat out some of the world most expensive hyper cars. It quite an amazing feat. Especially, since the EV has really only been in mass production for the last few years.
Electric vehicles are also just fun to drive. EVs have immediate torque and no transmission. So, you simply press the “Gas” pedal and you’re off! EVs are becoming increasingly easier to charge with new superchargers popping up all over the country. Additionally, you can charge your vehicle from the comfort of your own home.
There are three levels of home EV charging stations. Each level will determine how fast the vehicle can be charged:
These chargers typically plug into a household 120-volt outlet—like you’d plug your phone or laptop into. Given that it takes a few hours to charge your phone when plugged into such an outlet, it should be no surprise that a Level 1 charger will take a long time to charge the battery in your hybrid or electric car—typically adding only 3 to 5 miles per hour of charging. You can do the math on how long it will take to get a full charge on your EV.
If you’re driving a full-electric vehicle you’re going to want regular access to a Level 2 charger at home. Running on a 220-volt outlet, similar to what you’d plug your clothes dryer into, a Level 2 charger can deliver 12 to 80 miles of charge per hour.
These types of chargers are normally found in commercial settings. Such as places like gas stations, Costco, Malls etc. Level III are the fastest way to charge your car. However, you do pay more for the charge then you would at your home.
David Williams Electric is your preferred Howard County, MD Home EV (Electric Vehicle) charging station installer. We can handle all charging stations that you want to install at your residential home. We will take care of every aspect of getting your station ready to charge your vehicle. Many homeowners have frequently asked questions before they decide on an electric company that will complete the installation.
EV charging stations typically require a dedicated circuit to run from your home electric panel, directly to the charging station.
This depends on a few factors. The main cost determination is the distance and the difficulty to run wire from your electrical panel to the installation location. The next is the amperage that the EV requires. These can range from 30 – 80amps, typically. The higher the amperage, the faster your vehicle will charge. However, most installations run between $750 – $1250.
We typically do not provide the chargers since there are many options and recommended chargers for each manufacturer. Additionally, most vehicles are offered a charger along with the purchase of a new vehicle. However, we do recommend a “Juice Box” charger if you need a recommendation.
Most customers will choose to install the charger as close as possible to your vehicle location. This can be in the garage, carport, or driveway.
Yes! We can install as many as you need. (Prices will vary depending on how many you need and the location)
We can typically come out the same week you call or the following week.
Installation varies depending on the distance and difficulty to run wire from your panel to the location. However, most installations take about 2-4 hours.
It depends on the current size of your panel, available breaker spaces, and the current load capacity.

Diagnosed my electrical issue, then professionally resolved. Quick response time, quality work at a very reasonable price. Definitely use Dave Williams Electric for all future electrical work.
Needed some electrical work done in our garage. We’ve used DWE before and had a great experience. This time was no different- Matt and Lamont were professional and efficient. Would recommend.
Abbigail Cleckner was our electrician and she was amazing! So friendly and knowledgeable. They did quick clean work and my new lights are amazing. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
David Williams guys showed up on time, went above and beyond by helping me move some cabinets that were in their way (something I should have moved beforehand), and patched all drywall that had to be removed. Great Job!
We were so pleased with the work that Dave and Kevin did for us. I’m sure we don’t need to tell you what professionals they are. The explanation of the work to be done, the quality of their work, their neatness, etc., was all outstanding. We are more than happy to be a reference for others looking for great electrical professionals and plan to use David Williams Electric again in the near future.
Dave, I don’t normally do this, but I wanted to thank you for doing what you said when you said you would do it! We have been having a lot of work done in the house in the last year and it is the exception that when I get home, the work that was done was done correctly! You are the exception—thanks for your work!
We renovated our kitchen three years ago stopping short of the addition of recessed lighting. With the installation of the lights last week, it’s like walking into a brand new kitchen once again. We are so enjoying it. I appreciate the time spent with Vern discussing placement of the cans for function and aesthetics. We want you to know how much we admire the way you run your business, your work ethic and expertise and that of your staff.
