EV Charging Installation
When it comes to EV, you can trust the certified installation from Rein Electric
FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
Hybrid and all electrical vehicles charge the same way, by connecting to an electric vehicle charging station. The difference is hybrid vehicles can also use gasoline power if no electrical source is available.
When connected to either a personal, at-home charging station or public dock, the EV’s charging port transfers the power to the car’s battery.
1. Trickle Charging
- For emergencies only, this type of charging isn’t recommended. It uses 220 V 3-prong outlets.
2. AC Charging
- This is the most common type of residential installation charging. It is 3-4 times faster than typical 220V, 3 prong outlets and takes an average of 9-10 hours to fully charge most electrical vehicles
3. DC Charging
- This type of charging is typical for public charging stations and uses 50-150kW power for fast charging. Typically, DC will take about 1 hour to fully charge most EV’s depending on the power.
Depending on the battery type, car model, and price of local electricity, it can take between $4-$12 to fully charge an EV for an average of around 200 miles.
While electrical vehicles come with a 120v, charging port, it is by far the slowest method of charging and is not recommended.

Delivering Quality Customer Service
Terrific. Anthony, Mike, and Paul were all very professional. I made a few decision mistakes and Rein fixed them perfectly. Finished product is perfect. We own many retail stores, the Rein team has done installations at 3 of them and they are all done as hoped. Really great work.
Rein just installed a 3rd gen Tesla Charger for me. I received a text with a photo of the technician and eta shortly before he showed up. They were very timely in arriving on the window they provided me a week ago. Rein Electric had both the most convenient schedule for me and had the best pricing.
Nothing but professionalism and quality work. Anthony and his brothers have a solid, local company that cares about the customers. You can count on your job to be done with care and attention when you hire Rein Electric.
