As electric vehicle adoption continues to accelerate, so does the need for EV charging infrastructure.
I’ve personally installed a couple dozen EVSEs in the past eight years, and I’ve always had my EV with me, so I could test the unit to make sure it was working before I left.
However, most installers don’t have that luxury. Most of the time a new EVSE is installed, the technician leaves the site without knowing for sure if the unit is operational.
In fact, since I know many of the electrical contractors in my area, and they know how involved I am in the local EV community, I’ve had a couple call me when they were installing a new EVSE. They asked if I could stop when they were finished, and plug my car in to and verify that the station indeed worked.
