Electric Vehicle Chargers in Northern VA & Washington DC
As the proud owner of an electric vehicle (EV), or hybrid vehicle, you enjoy many unique benefits. Electric vehicle tech has advanced extremely rapidly in the past decade, providing owners with perks like quieter and smoother rides, lower overall fuel costs, and the sheer convenience of never needing to take trips to the gas station.
Initially, there was one major obstacle to owning these vehicles. Charging them was a bit inconvenient, as it takes a while and charging stations weren’t quite widespread in the early days. We’re happy to say this is no longer an issue! With the advent of exceptionally efficient home charging stations, homeowners can enjoy all of the benefits of EVs without any major downsides to speak of. If you’re looking to have a charging station installed in Southern Maryland, the experts at John Goudie Electric can help!
An electric vehicle charging station, also called a charging port or EVSE for short, is a device that allows the charging of EVs at home. These systems are occasionally simply called “chargers,” but the term is actually incorrect, as the actual charging device for EVs resides within the vehicle itself. A charging station simply allows access to the power your vehicle needs.
These EVSEs make use of a dedicated circuit to allow a plug and socket system to plug directly into your electric car. And just like that, your EV can be charging overnight, allowing you access to consistent power and eliminating the need for frustrating trips to public charging stations.
My service was just finished by Ron and his helper, and I could not be happier. They replaced a couple of power outlets, a couple of light switches, and my fire detector. (Did you know you're supposed to have these replaced every 10 years?) These guys were professional, pleasant, efficient... AWESOME, I'll be calling in for additional work in the near future. (Hope I get these guys again!).Lea S.
I was thrilled with their efficiency and customer service. He arrived the same day, identified the problem quickly and after the part I needed came in he was back right away to install. They even sent me a thank you for my business card! This is a company with superior electrical skills and top-notch customer service.M T
We have a two-story foyer with a large chandelier. Yesterday afternoon the chain snapped and it was hanging by only the electrical cord. We called Goudie and they were here early this morning and fixed it immediately. They took the time to replace the bulbs and wash all the glass on the chandelier. Great service and very very responsive. Could not be happier.Bob G.
Goudie Electric was thorough and extremely professional. Their customer service attitude is exceptional. Under very trying circumstances due to the national emergency, they diagnosed a very difficult service fault and accomplished a very complicated new installation, including difficult site constraints at a very reasonable price. Thank you so very much!Christopher G.
Outstanding customer service. Communication was great and the technician Ron was early which was a plus for us. He was quick to diagnose and remedy our electrical outlet issue. He also provided insight into why it happened and how to check for similar issues on other outlets. He also cleaned up once the job was complete which was a nice plus. We're keeping them in our list of housing contractors to do business with and we'll recommend them if the opportunity arises. Thanks again for fixing our issue and giving us piece of mind the job was done right.Jeffery B.
We’ve had issues with our electric down by the pool. We had SMECO and various other electricians come out to see what the issue was a non of them could figure it out. John Goudie Electric figured out the issue within an hour. Spectacular service. Highly recommend.Tyler C.
Phenomenal Service from start to finish! Beginning with the phone call into the office, to the completion of the job, John Goudie Electric was, and is OUTSTANDING! After the installation of a chandelier and a ceiling fan (in two separate rooms😊) there was a slight connection issue with the fan and my current recessed lighting. I called to report the issue, and John & Krystal (sp) were immediately responsive, scheduled Me for a follow-up appointment, and the technicians were at my home bright and early to correct the problem! The combined effort of the office staff and the field electricians is extremely impressive (especially when professional and caring customer service is lacking in many areas/industries)! If you're contemplating hiring them... Wonder no more... HIRE THEM! You'll be HAPPY you did 😃 💃🏿!

They provided outstanding service as a subcontractor to our company while upgrading LED lighting at one of the many government facilities we support. John Jr. and his team are true professionals. We highly recommend them for your Electrical needs.John S.
The ABSOLUTE BEST Customer Service (including, compassionately following up when their work was complete)! This company is AMAZING… I received OUTSTANDING customer service, from the moment I frantically called, and Krystle (I swear she was a Godsend) calmly answered the phone. Her presence immediately put me at ease, and gave me an assured, confident feeling that she knew what she was doing and that she’d take care of Me. The field service techs were also very professional, thorough and courteous!
Krystle stands out because this Young Lady even followed up with Me on her way to a personal medical appointment… Now, who and what company does that???!!! I will DEFINITELY use this company again, and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND them for your electrical needs. Customer Service begins the moment You make contact, and for Me… Every moment thereafter, I felt like Krystle HAD MY BACK!!!!! Thank You so much in my time of need! It meant a lot to Me!Karen F.
Installing an EV charger at your home has several advantages, including:
- Convenience – For the reasonable cost of installation, you get full access to dependable power. No more complicated public systems or fighting to get the power you need. It’s all at home and as simple as a plug-and-go!
- Faster charging – EVSEs can be set up to deliver faster, more effective power. The result is a vehicle that is ready to go a lot sooner than one that is simply plugged into a public outlet.
- Additional Perks – Charging ports can also come with Wi-Fi accessibility, giving you access to apps like timers, display systems, data collection, and monitoring systems. They aren’t necessary of course, but they can add a lot of great benefits!
