Are there units suitable for home use? Which brands and models?
I currently have a 40 amp cable to the garage and a 200 amp breaker box,
Do I need three phase power? Digging up the street would be pretty expensive and the HOA would probably not permit overhead lines. Or, is the standard residential distribution line three phase and they just give different legs to different houses?
For these costs, might be worth exploring just BUYING or building a nearby commercial charging station so you can defray some costs by charging other EV owners to use it. The only downside is that someone else might be using it when you need it.
