From Frustrated To Fully Charged: An EV Charging Station Story


From Frustrated To Fully Charged: How
We Saved A Customer’s EV Dreams

We Stepped Up When Our Customer’s
EV Dealership Dropped The Ball


Gretchen, a vibrant and tech-savvy senior in PA, embraced the future by purchasing a new electric vehicle (EV). Excited to ditch the gas station, she called Shafnisky Electric to install a residential electric vehicle charging station in her home.

“Steve and Neville did an excellent job with the 220 line and car charger installation.”


After our installation, everything seemed to be running smoothly – until it wasn’t. Gretchen encountered difficulties using the charger, which was an issue the EV car dealership was responsible for fixing.

Unfortunately, Gretchen said they weren’t very helpful.

In fact, a visit from their technician left her even more confused and frustrated – with unanswered calls adding to her woes.

These are the situations where Shafnisky Electric really shines.


It Wasn’t Our Job – It Was Our Responsibility

We believe exceptional customer service goes beyond the initial installation. And we refused to leave Gretchen stranded. Recognizing the importance of customer satisfaction, we took a proactive approach.

Mike, our friendly head of Business Development, visited Gretchen’s home free of charge. He didn’t just talk – he listened. He reviewed the car’s manual, observed Gretchen’s charging routine, and identified a few user errors and misunderstandings.

With a little extra customer care, we solved Gretchen’s immediate problem and solidified our reputation as her trusted partner.

“I have used Shafnisky for two jobs in the last two years. Everyone who did the upgrade and installation of a 220 line was professional, on time, and helpful.”


The result? A thrilled customer who can now confidently use her EV charger. In her own words:

“This new technology is something I’m learning to use. Thanks to Mike DeLucia’s help, I’m on the way to being able to charge my vehicle at home. I highly recommend Shafnisky!”


At Shafnisky Electric, we proudly combine traditional values with emerging technology like EV car charging stations. And that’s exactly what we did for Gretchen.
