EV charger subpanel needed?
i just got an electric car and wanted to install a 50amp circuit beaker to be attached to my nema14-50 outlet. however, when i open the panel… i dont have any more space. 🙁
Do I need to install a subpanel? if so, I had following questions.
After watching your video about installing subpanel, there are some areas that I need clarifications.
1) If you are maxed out on space…you cant install another breaker. How do you add a subpanel breaker if you don’t have space?
2) I need 50amp. What AMP breaker should the subpanel be?
3) The main panel main line is at 125amp. do I need to upgrade that? If so, how do I upgrade main amp breaker? is it easy as just switching to a higher amp breaker?
Thank you for all your videos. Love your videos!~
