How Do I Prepare My Garage for an EV?

You’ll want to prepare your garage before taking home your new Ford EV in Mayfield. We recommend clearing your garage floor of any clutter to provide enough space for both your vehicle and its charging cable. After clearing out your garage, you’ll then want to assess your home’s power panel, its typical usage and determine if it can handle charging your EV. An experienced electrician can help you with this if you’re unsure, as you don’t want to overload your power panel!
