Home EV Charging Solutions
Due to its advantages over traditional vehicles in terms of environmental impact, fuel efficiency, and other factors, electric vehicles are growing in popularity across the nation. However, there are still not enough charging outlets available.
For this reason, if you drive an electric vehicle, having a household EV charging station is essential. Our professionals can assist you in selecting a solution that meets your goals and budget, and we can also swiftly and effectively install it for you.
Benefits of Having an EV Charging Station at Home
Starting on July 1st, 2022, a program launched by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency will pay up to 80% of the installation expenses for electric vehicle chargers. Additionally, they may receive rewards if they are included in the “environmental justice” category.
Different Types of Home EV Charging Stations
It’s crucial to be aware of the many types of household EV charging stations that are available and how they vary before making a purchase. When you come in for a consultation, our staff will be delighted to provide you with all the information you require to make a decision.
Level 1 Charging
Level 1 charging, often referred to as overnight charging, makes use of a typical 120-volt plug. It works best for light-duty vehicle use since some electric vehicles may need up to 20 hours on these chargers to fully charge their batteries.
Level 2 Charging
Level 2 chargers could help you save a lot of time. Most electric vehicles may be charged in three hours or less. However, they need to be installed by a qualified, highly experienced electrician.
Level 3 Charging
This last alternative is also referred to as DC rapid charging where your electric car can be fully charged in as little as 30 minutes. Instead of residences, they are more commonly encountered in commercial environments.
