EVSE Installation & Service
(Car Charging Stations)

What Is A Charging Station


When you purchase or lease an electric vehicle, the dealership or auto company may have supplied you with a charging station.

If not, we can provide you one. And, if you’ve already purchased one, we can help install it.

EVSE, or a charging station, is a device that supplies electric energy for the recharging of electric vehicles, such as plug-in electric vehicles.

Highmark Electrical can help you install this! In fact, we can help install any type of charging station for all makes or models of electric cars.

Electric vehicle supply equipment, or EVSE, is an electric vehicle charging station.

Also called EV charging station, electric recharging point, charging point, charge point.

Types Of Charging Vehicles


There are several types of charging vehicles.

This includes:

  • Electric cars
  • Neighborhood Electric Vehicles
  • Plug-in hybrids

Why Install A Charging Station


Owning an electrical vehicle is a great way to save money on gas and reduce your carbon footprint by a significant margin.

Although there are many good reasons to drive an electric car, keeping your vehicle fully charged can become somewhat inconvenient after a while if you do not have electric vehicle supply equipment installed in your home.

Thankfully, you can have all the convenience that comes with having an electric vehicle charger in your own home with help from Vancouver’s electrical experts at Highmark Electric.

Charging Station Benefits


Having an at-home charging station for your electric vehicle is a great way to maximize the accessibility of your energy efficient car.

It will make it easier to monitor your energy consumption and will go a long way towards reducing your fuel expenditures. Before you can take advantage of all of the benefits of having an EVSE installed in your home, you will want to make sure that you have a team of certified electricians to install it for you.

There are a number of steps that go into integrating an EVSE into your home’s electrical system, which is why you should make sure you hire a skilled and trustworthy company that is certified to install EV or car charging stations for your home or business.
