Electric Car Charging at Home

Types of Electric Vehicle Chargers

Many electric vehicles are charged only at home.

Connecting to a standard household electrical outlet is practical for charging any EV when time is not a factor. But many EV drivers may want to install a Level 2-240-volt AC charger. This makes electric car charging at home much faster. 

Level 2 charging stations should be installed by a professional EV charger installer. Many local governments and utilities offer EV charger incentives and rebates for the purchase or installation of these units.

Some utilities also offer special rates for EV charging to reduce charging costs at home. And most EVs have software that enables you to charge your vehicle when electricity rates are lowest.
