Electric Vehicle Charging Station in Attached Garage
I’m wondering if anyone has any rules of thumb when locating a vehicle charging station inside an attached garage. I’m putting in a 240v outlet but don’t want to regret the placement location later.
I know I’m limited to a 25′ cord and placement near an overhead door is best. I read one blog that said to also place it near a man-door but didn’t say why. Anyone have thoughts or experience?
My garage will be 3-car attached. All outside doors are on the north face, running west to east it’s double overhead, single overhead, man-door outside, then door to house is on east face of garage.
I was planning on putting the charger in the NW corner, which is the likely location of my future EV. The gas powered family mover will usually be parked on the east side closest to the house door. Do I really need to consider putting the charger on the east side by the house and outside man-door?
I thought about putting it on the narrow section between overhead doors, but I feel like that will get bumped too often by kids not paying attention.
