BEFORE YOUR EV CHARGER INSTALLATION RICHMOND
All EV chargers need a dedicated circuit in the panel. If you don’t have the space in your current panel, a sub-panel may be installed to accommodate the new circuit. If you have an 100 amp panel installed in your home, you will need to upgrade to a 200 amp panel for EV Charger Installation.
HOW DO I DETERMINE IF MY STATION NEEDS TO BE HARDWIRED?
A hardwired charging station can be installed either indoors or outdoors. However it is always recommended to hardwire any outdoor installations. A hardwired installation provides more installation flexibility than the 240V supply plug. They are especially recommended for Level 2 charging stations that continuously use power where hardwiring will provide the best connection.

The Service Was Great
Needed an electrician to help me replace a thermostat and give me a quote on installing pot lights in two rooms, as the light switches are not connected to anything. The service was great and he discovered be could fix one of my rooms to have the light switch connected to an existing outlet which was included in the hour of work I paid for. Good service, arrived on time, provided advice and was friendly and prompt. Would recommend.
Skilled & Efficient
AJ’s has done electrical work for us a few times — installing light fixtures and sorting out wiring problems. Today Jason changed the puck lights in our kitchen from halogen to LED. Skilled and efficient. Always professional and cost-conscious.

Highly Efficient & Professional
I was very impressed with the work AJ Electrical did for me. I really like their estimation services and hour the estimates include the estimated number of man-hours for your job. The work itself was highly efficient and professional. Their staff are also a pleasure to deal with (Darrian, Josh, and Kyle). I would highly recommend AJ Electrical and I will use them again in the future for future electrical jobs in my house.

Helpful & Explained Everything
Dealing with AJs was a great experience. From the moment of calling them about needing someone to install a 240V socket and talking to Darian. Darian was most helpful and explained everything and even managed to get our service done sooner then the 3 weeks it was originally scheduled for. Kyle the electrician was on time, professional and did the work quickly. Would recommend AJs to anyone needing Electrical work. Their price was reasonable, they were prompt and did the work well.
