Installation

Learn more about the home installation process for an electric vehicle charger in our installation guide.

Efficiency Maine maintains a list* of residential electrical contractors on its website. Enter your ZIP Code to find an installer near you.

By participating in the program, you agree to pay for installation costs as well as activate and connect your JuiceBox charger. Your new JuiceBox has a SAE-J1772™ connector, which is compatible with all EVs on the market today, including Tesla’s (using an adapter).

This program is limited to the first 100 participants who install their charger.

* Note that while EV charger installation services are not yet listed as a specific service on this page, most contractors will be capable of installing the JuiceBox charger. You can search for a contractor based on ZIP Code and Distance alone, without selecting a service from the dropdown list.

FAQs

How do I sign up for the Efficiency Maine EV Smart Charge Pilot?

Once you install and connect your charger, you are signed up for the program. After purchasing your charger, an energy expert from our partner ERS will contact you to confirm your program enrollment, provide additional program information, and discuss next steps.

How does the permitting process work?

Residents and/or their contractors are responsible for securing all required permits and for meeting installation requirements.

If I already have a JuiceBox or other smart Level 2 charger and live in Maine, can I sign up for the Efficiency Maine EV Smart Charge Pilot?

Unfortunately, no. The program is only open to EV drivers who don’t already have a smart Level 2 charger installed at their home.

What are the qualifications for the Efficiency Maine EV Smart Charge Pilot?

Eligible participants must live in Maine and must not already own a smart Level 2 charger. Participants also are expected to install, connect, and maintain their JuiceBox smart charger. The program is limited to the first 100 participants who install and connect their charger.

If I’m having problems with my JuiceBox who do I contact?

Is this system compatible with all home electrical systems?

To confirm compatibility with your home electrical system, please consult our quick guide to understanding what may be needed for your JuiceBox home charging installation. Some homes may already be equipped with a standard NEMA 14-50 outlet to install a Level 2 charging station and some may require an electrician to install a new outlet. Others may require an electrical service panel upgrade, depending on the circuit capacity.

What if I rent?

The applicant will be responsible for overseeing the installation of the charging station and coordinating with the property manager, as needed.
