Power an electric vehicle charging infrastructure for a single-family home with a full electric panel.


To power a charging infrastructure installed in this single-family home with a 100A panel at full capacity, a DCC-12 was installed.

“The addition of the device added about $2,000 to the cost of the charger installation, and some of the expense will be covered by a new federal tax credit. In the grand scheme of things, the extra money seemed well worth it. The installation was accomplished in one afternoon, then inspected a few weeks later. The device works beautifully, provides round-the-clock protection for the ample Level 2 charger mounted on the outside of the garage.”
