Home electric vehicle charging stations: Indoors or Outdoors?

March 11, 2013

Finally, the moment has arrived. The EV charging station will be installed at our home tomorrow. Only one question remains: Should we install it in the garage or outdoors? If we ever join the PlugShare network and allow others to use the station it would seem outdoors would be betters. And, there is no time soon that we will be able to clean out enough stuff in our garage to put the 2012 Nissan Leaf in the garage so we would have to string the cord into the garage with the car parked in the driveway if we put the charger indoors.

Then again, we live near the ocean, and wonder if the weather will harm the charging station or reduce its life span. And, do the neighbors really want to see it?

What do you electric vehicle owners out there think?

    Our Blink EVSE is mounted in the middle of the garage. The best of both worlds. Charge inside or out!
