Over the next two years I am upgrading all my electric panels so the I can install EV vehicle electric outlets. Either 30 or 50 amp. 30 amp should be sufficient, just takes a bit longer to charge but not problem if charging over nite. Maybe ahead of the change coming but will use as a marking tool to make my properties a step up from my competition! Your take on this step? --108.66.xx.xx

Going to require a 250 amp circuit breaker panel if using a electric stove, clothes dryer and water heater or could use 200 amp panel if all those appliances were natural gas. A stove type of outlet is used where Ac goes into EV vehicle. View some videos on You Tube about installing a outlet for charging a EV vehicle. There two types plugs one for Tesla and the other for other EV vehicles. --99.236.xxx.xxx

It's easy to measure the load capabilities of the utility wiring to the house and the limits of your panel. Most of the time you can add a double 30 amp circuit/breaker without any issues. Sometimes not.

You can spend a couple hundred bucks to add a charging port circuit (not the equipment) or have to replace the panel at a cost of $5,000 or more. --47.155.xx.xxx

Appliances that use the most current are a electric stove, electric water heater, electric clothes dryer where converting to natural gas the existing circuit breaker service panel will easily handle a 50 amp stove receptacle in the garage for charging a EV vehicle. The EV vehicle converts AC to DC in the vehicle to charge batteries. Charging at 120 VAC can be done but will take a very long time where 240 VAC will charge at a better rate as high amperage and voltage. The future is going to be solar panels where can charge EV from solar panels. Enough solar panels will charge EV vehicles alone when the sun is out. --99.236.xxx.xxx

All my properties have gas furnaces and water heaters plus piping for a gas dryer but few tenants have gas dryers. My opinion is that natural gas is SO much more less expensive than electric for those items. I can change out the main breaker for $500, 200 amp Square D $200 material $300 labor. Pull the meter, it is not brain surgery. Wow. Now there are a lot of people that should not do this but, really it is not that hard! Obviously safety first, especially dealing with high voltage electric! --108.66.xx.xx

I've never had an applicant with an electric car, so I'll wait and deal with it if it ever happens.

Maybe in the states with laws banning internal combustion engines, it might be different, but the electric cars aren't popular around here. --76.178.xxx.xxx

I don't think widespread adoption of EVs will happen anytime soon. Rentals are a big reason why it won't. What percentage of the population rents? Apartment parking doesn't lend itself to EV charging. Especially if parking is on street.

You need to have a dedicated parking spot and a charger and metered to the tenants electric bill. Not easy to do unless it's a single family home or townhome. --174.53.xxx.xxx

If ever sell house then it is better to install a 250 amp circuit breaker panel as some people do want want to use natural gas appliances. In the province of Ontario hydro electric costs are really expensive where using less is a better option. Often when I bought a used gas stove people were going back to a electric stove. I prefer a natural gas stove and clothes dryer as the heat comes right away instead of waiting for coils to heat up. Since there is no storage of hot water where the demand water heater was installed in 2005 there is no stand by loss. While it will cost more upfront later if ever sell then some buyers would rather pay high electricity costs. Here using natural gas is a third of the cost of electricity for heating unless using a ground sourced heating system. Laundromats only use the heavy commercial natural gas clothes dryers as there a 20 to 30 minute drying time. --99.236.xxx.xxx

I'm actually adding them into my next construction project, a set of 1 bedroom homes with garages. We should be fine with the 200 amp box.

We have just enough people coming into town that have them, that it makes sense to wire them in from the start. The Ford dealer in the next town to the east even sent some of his guys to school to learn how to work on them, and has been advertising the new Electric Mustang.

So, if you have the location? I'd add it in. --67.43.xxx.xxx

I have a friend in nearby college town, has 100 amp service, 2 30 amp electric plugs with no problems, appliances are gas with outlets for electric dryer and range. Maybe upgrade to 125 amp load center if electric kitchen coming, my provided kitchens are electric. --76.188.xxx.xxx

Tenants with electric vehicles probably wouldn't get along with me... so without a charging station, I won't get them as tenants, fine with that.

EVs are great. And if you offer the service, any tenant with an electric vehicle will have limited options finding a new rental that lets them charge their vehicle. And I bet they'd be willing to pay extra.

Two tips, use a higher gauge than needed to protect against overheating, and place a fire/smoke detector in the garage to be safe. --108.69.xxx.xxx
