Electric Vehicle Charging for the Whidbey Community

Clean, Professional, Code-Compliant Installations

Home with electric vehicle charger

As more people make the switch to electric vehicles, the demand for personal charging stations has become increasingly important. Home charging stations integrate with your home’s electrical system to make charging your EV convenient and safe. Here at Energywise, we are committed to supporting this transition to electric vehicles by providing high quality charger installations to the Whidbey Island community.

We specialize in the installation of high-performance Level 2 chargers. Level 2 chargers are designed for quicker charging speeds, which ensures your vehicle is fully charged and ready to hit the road whenever you need it. These chargers can be installed indoors or out, whichever is most convenient for your charging needs.

Our lead electrician, Don Gamble, has over 30 years of experience in the electrical trade and is committed to making every installation safe and neat. Sean, our AD01 electrical administrator, will meet with you on site to evaluate your electrical system and design a custom charging solution that meets your needs (all free of charge). Sean and Don work together to ensure that every installation meets or exceeds the safety requirements laid out in the National Electrical Code and Washington Administrative Code. Safety is our highest priority and should be for any electrician.

In addition to EV chargers, we also provide other electrical services such as generator installation, service panel modification and replacement, feeder and branch circuit installation, and electrical troubleshooting. We hope that you find the following FAQ helpful and look forward to working with you. Feel free to give us a call or text at 360-632-7455.


We are a licensed, bonded, and insured electrical contractor in the State of Washington.

Frequently Asked Questions

What types of home EV chargers are available?

There are primarily two types of chargers for home use: Level 1 and Level 2.

Level 1 chargers are the most basic and can be plugged into a standard 120-volt AC outlet. They typically deliver 2 to 5 miles of range per hour of charging.

Level 2 chargers require a dedicated 240-volt circuit (like your clothes dryer or oven) and can provide 18 to 35 miles of range per hour of charging, depending on the vehicle and the charger's specific power rating.

Can I install the charger myself?

Installing a Level 1 charger can typically be done by the homeowner since it just requires a standard electrical outlet. However, installing a Level 2 charger requires a professional electrician due to the need for a dedicated 240-volt circuit. In any case, it's important to ensure that the charger is installed safely in accordance with the National Electrical Code and Washington Administrative Code.

How much does a Level 2 home EV charger cost?

A Level 2 charger installation could range from $1,200 to $4,000, depending on the scope of work. We perform free estimates in order to generate the most fair and accurate pricing for each charging station.

Can I use a home EV charger with any electric vehicle?

Most home EV chargers use a standard SAE J1772 connector compatible with most electric vehicles sold in North America. However, certain EV models, like Teslas, come with their own proprietary connectors that usually include an adapter for J1772 connectors.

How much will it cost to charge my EV at home?

The cost of charging your EV at home depends on your local electricity rates and the specific EV model. On average, charging an EV can be significantly less expensive than filling a similar-sized conventional car with gasoline. You can typically find the exact energy usage of your EV in the vehicle's user manual or on the manufacturer's website.

Is it safe to charge my EV in the rain?

Yes, it's safe to charge your EV in the rain. EV chargers are designed to be weatherproof and include several safety features, such as ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) to prevent electric shocks.

How can I extend the lifespan of my home EV charger?

It's generally recommended to keep your EV charger clean, protect it from extreme weather as much as possible, and avoid overloading it. Following the manufacturer's guidelines for use and maintenance can also help extend the lifespan of your charger.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to reach out to us. We're here to help make your transition to electric driving as smooth and convenient as possible!
