Thanks, that’s what I’ve been seeing is a 40-50 amp circuit breaker but was just thinking my luck I’ll get this ev and then can’t have a charger installed haha.You need to have a licensed electrician evaluate your service panel and current ecctrical loads to determine if your panel has enough spare capacity to power the charger. Presumably you are looking at a min. 32 amp 240 volt unit which requires a 40 amp circuit breaker, I believe. I am not an electrician.
Photos show it plugged into standard 110 but not sure what amperage it needs. Having a plug put in next to your panel, assuming your panel is in the garage, isn’t much of an investment dollar-wise if your construction is new(ish) and you’re planning to go EV. GM had to consider that when designing everything. Maybe just a much slower charge?How do you know if your breaker box on your house can handle a charger for your electric vehicle. I’m going to have to have an outside charger box installed and I was wondering where I can find information about this.
If you get a charging station from the dealer with the truck do they install it?Also consider physical space in your panel. If you are installing a 240v outlet instead of a hardwired charger, you’ll need to install a GFCI breaker. I had to have a sub panel installed to fit 2 of those because there wasn’t enough room in the main panel.
I don’t think that’s known yet, but Chevy does offer free charger installation with purchase of a Bolt. So hopefully that program will continue with the Silverado EV and future vehicles.If you get a charging station from the dealer with the truck do they install it?
