Most sites required a service upgrade to accommodate the multiple chargers, encompassing specific capabilities and sizes. This required coordination with local utilities, permitting, and engineered electrical plans to properly install these projects. In addition, to install the chargers in the most convenient spot for the dealership’s customers, the parking lots, stalls, and sidewalks had to be modified in most cases. An additional requirement of having the exterior equipment installed on a stamped concrete walkway, required further coordination with concrete sub-contractors to ensure design criteria was maintained.
Most of the Jaguar – Land Rover locations required installation of (2) 480V DC fast charging stations, (2) 120V single port charging stations and (1) 120V dual port charging station. Due to the lack of available breaker space at some locations we were required to install two new panels and a new 120/208 Wye to 480V Delta transformer. The facilities allowed for surface mounting conduit in the service area but requested that conduit and accessories in the show room be out of sight.
