2022 Bolt EUV Premier
Electrical code requires a breaker of higher capacity than the expected load, typically 25% more. A 32 amp EVSE requires a 40 amp breaker. a 40 amp EVSE requires a 50 amp breaker. a 48 amp EVSE would require a 60 amp breaker. Any circuit that expects a 50 amp load might be OK with a 60 amp breaker, but might require moving up to 70 amp, of course with the correctly sized wiring for all.Granted. Our garage outlet is wired for a 90 amp circuit, but I have a 40 amp breaker for our 32 amp onboard charger. Way safer than one wired for 50 amp service, and fused with a 50 amp breaker. Much better to have more wire than you "need", and a breaker closer to your load.
