Charging your Electric Vehicle

Electric vehicles can be charged at an increasing number of locations at different speeds depending on the location and type of charger. However, the two most common places to charge are at home and on the road. Use the tools below to find charging stations in your area and learn more about installing charging at home.

Charging at Home

It’s easy to refuel an electric vehicle at home. To ensure shorter charge times and to take advantage of utility off-peak hours, a certified electrician can install a Level 2 charging station in your home. Wall chargers can be plugged into a regular 240V outlet or hardwired into the wall. Level 1 chargers and adapters (typically come with an EV) can be plugged into a 110 outlet. Level 1 charge times are much longer, depending on how much is needed for a full battery charge.

Level 1: 2-5 miles added per hour or about 40 miles overnight

Level 2: 25 miles added per hour

Charging on the Road: Public Charging Stations

Finding the right charging station is easy. Most modern Electric Vehicles have built in maps and navigation tools for finding charging stations, calculating charging time, and even availability. The two types of chargers found in public spaces are DC Fast and Level 2.

Level 2: 25 miles added per hour

DC Fast Charging: 100 – 400 miles added per hour
