EV Home Charging Station Installation
Electric Vehicle Home Charging Station Installation For Lynchburg and Surrounding Counties
Charge Your Tesla or Other EV From Home
Charging your electric vehicle at home is a great convenience. Rather than spending time driving to a public charging station only to wait at a charger, you can save significant time charging your electric vehicle overnight at home. Your EV will be ready to go the distance whenever you need it. Charging from home also allows you to take advantage of lower off-peak residential electricity rates.
Types of Home EV Chargers
There are three main types of EV chargers, two of which can be installed in your home.
Level 1 chargers are often included with the vehicle and can be plugged into a standard wall outlet. While the level 1 charger usually requires no additional installation, it is the slowest way to charge your EV, taking around an hour to restore 4 to 5 miles of range.
Level 2 home EV chargers are fast and convenient. You’ll be able to recover 25 to 30 miles of range per hour. This allows most EVs to be charged in around 4 hours, compared to around 16 hours when using a Level 1 one charger.
Level 3 chargers are high-performance commercial charging units that are not typically installed in residential environments.
