Electric Vehicles

Planning for an electric vehicle in your furture?

How will you charge the vehicle?
Based on surveys of electric vehicle (EV) owners, 80 percent of charging occurs at home. There are
different levels of charging stations available. Decide which charger is best for your needs.

Level 1 charging provides the slowest
charge, around 3 to 5 electric miles per
hour. Even at this slow speed, however,
the majority of electric vehicle owners
plug in at home to refuel. It plugs into a
120-volt outlet.

Level 2 charging is commonly found in
public locations, including hotels, shopping centers, downtown areas, multifamily communities, and work places. Level 2 charging stations can also be installed at home if a 240-volt outlet is available. Level 2 charging is three to five times faster than Level 1 and provides 10 to 20 electric miles per hour.

Level 3 charge provides an opportunity for a very quick charge. These stations are capable of charging a depleted electric vehicle’s battery to 80 percent capacity in under 30 minutes. Fast charging stations are usually located in high-traffic public areas.
