Consider how much power your service panel will be able to supply to your charger. Chargers are generally high capacity and even if you have a new and improved service panel, you need to be careful you do not overload it. Your charger can typically use between 30 and 50 amps.
Consider whether you can install a charging station yourself or with the help of an electrician. Proper installation by a professional can save you a lot of hassle in the future!
