Specialized EV charger installations- EV owners are connected to Qmerit installers, not random service organizations.

Qmerit ’s unique scoring system tracks contractor performance and customer satisfaction to help you get the best contractors available.
Competitive, local pricing- Qmerit puts you in contact with up to three Qmerit installers in your area. You communicate directly with the installers throughout the entire process. Qmerit is not involved with any pricing for installations, your bids come directly from your selected installers. You are in complete control to select the installer you like best.
Easy-to-use technology saves you time and money- Our EV Home Readiness Survey allows you to provide essential information about your EV charger installation preferences right up front.

In some cases, the survey can enable installers to provide you a bid without a site visit.
About your home
Installation of a Level 2 (240v) charging station typically requires that you own your home or have building owner permission (required for permits) and if applicable, have received HOA approval to install your charging station. Also note that “smart connected” stations require WiFi connectivity, so you will want to check your coverage at the installation location. For multi-family housing, most apartment complexes do not allow individual installations due to the inability to track and calculate electricity usage.

Cost of installation
Most installations range from about $750 to $1,750. This does not include the cost of the Level 2 charging station. Learn more.
Charging station price ranges
Charging stations range in price from $550 to $1,000, depending on the model and its options.

Pulling a city permit
Top 3 reasons to pull a city permit for your Level 2 charger installation
Safety & Protection: Permitting provides a final inspection process that ensures your installation was done safely and to the electrical code specifications. If a mistake is made, the city inspector is there to catch it and ensure it is corrected right away. All electrical upgrades must be done properly to avoid electrical and fire hazard risk.
Homeowners’ Insurance: If you ever have a related claim on your home (damage, etc.), your insurance company will likely require evidence of a permit on the electrical circuit upgrade.
Warranty: The Qmerit platform allows your installer to capture installation details that become helpful in the event that the station needs service or warranty attention in the future.
