EV Chargers in Charlotte

Electric Vehicle Charger Station Installation Services

As electric vehicles continue to grow in popularity, many homeowners are choosing to install EV charging stations in their own garages. Doing so provides the convenience of rapidly charging their electric vehicle overnight, ensuring they have enough power for the next day. Because these specialized stations require a 240-volt circuit to operate, installation should be performed by a licensed electrician.

How Fast Can You Charge an Electric Vehicle at Home?

Charging speeds for electric vehicles depend primarily on the size of the battery and the speed of the charging stations. Maximum charging speed may also be limited by an EV’s onboard charger. The time is takes to fully charge the EV’s battery can range from 30 minutes to 12+ hours. The larger the battery and the slower the charging point, the longer it takes to charge the battery from empty to full. It is for this reason that many drivers top up their charge throughout the day, instead of waiting for their battery to reach its lowest point.

There are three types of EV charging speeds, including:

  • Level 1 charging – This type of charger comes with most electric vehicles and operates from a standard 110-volt AC wall outlet. Unfortunately, the rate of charge is only 4-5 miles per hour. This is simply not fast enough for most drivers, which is why they prefer to install a level 2 charger.
  • Level 2 charging – The level 2 charger runs on 240-volt AC and can charge at a speed of 25 miles per hour. At this rate, an EV battery can fully charge overnight. Unless you already have a 240-volt outlet installed on your property, you’ll need to add one before using this type of charger.
  • Level 3 charging – Also known as DC fast charging, these charging stations require a 200 to 600-volt DC. Many of these high-powered stations can charge a battery from empty to full in under an hour. These chargers are typically only used for commercial properties.

How to Get an EV Charger Installed at Your Home
