EV Charging Station Considerations
There are many different options when it comes to EV charging stations. The master electricians at Aardvark Electric will help you choose the best, most cost-effective EV charger for your needs.
Here are some things to take into consideration when purchasing an EV charger for your home or business:
While many electric vehicles come with a Level 1 (“slow” or “trickle”) charging station that plugs in directly to a standard outlet, they take about 20 hours for a full charge.
For a faster charge (about 2 hours), a Level 2 charging station is ideal. It uses a dedicated 240-Volt circuit that must be installed by a licensed electrician.
Level 3 (DC Fast Charging, DCFC) chargers are normally reserved for commercial or industrial purposes, providing an 80% charge in under 30 minutes. They require ongoing professional maintenance.
You can choose between mobile and permanent EV chargers. Plug mobile chargers into different 120- and 240-Volt outlets. Permanent chargers can get installed indoors or outdoors. Just make sure you hire a qualified and experienced electrician to choose and install the right model for your needs.
Most Level 2 charging stations range in power from 12 Amps to 80 Amps. Around 15 Amps is perfectly suitable for one car, but you may want to install a higher Amp charger for larger vehicles or multiple cars.
Take cord length into consideration when choosing your charging station. Longer cord lengths allow charging stations to be installed closer to the service panel, potentially leading to installation savings. Choosing a longer cord also allows for extra operational flexibility and convenience.
