ATLANTA, GA, June 11, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Atlanta electrical contractors, Pat Murphy Electric, talk about electric cars and what the owners of these vehicles need to know about powering them. If you own one, you have probably experienced the lightened burden of not having to fuel up at the pump. Depending on how much you drive and what the cost of gasoline is in your area, the annual savings on can be quite impressive.

Your EV Matters
Though drivers of these cars need not worry about running out of fuel, they do have to perform frequent recharging cycles throughout the week to keep the motor going. The charging systems in electric cars are fairly straightforward. The vehicle features a built-in charger that converts energy from AC to DC. To put that another way, the unit in your garage technically does not perform the charging aspects.

The Electric Vehicle Service Equipment, or EV for short, basically works as the connection between the power source and the on-board charger. Given that your vehicle is fully dependent on the EV's ability to safely and efficiently transfer electrical energy, it pays to purchase a quality brand and to have the unit professionally installed. The average cost of an EV with installation is about $700 to $900. Pricier models are equipped with higher amperage capacities and offer more in the way of mobility and connectivity.

According to Guy Roberts, CEO of Pat Murphy Electric, Inc., "Never buy an EV that puts out less than 30 amps. Anything less will make the transfer process more time-consuming for the average owner or driver. With regards to installation, you should have a clear idea of where your car is going to be parked. Having extra cable length is better than coming up short."

The residential electrical service experts can have your EV installed in less than a day. For more information or to schedule a free consultation, visit them at http://patmurphyelectric.com.
