EV Chargers

Level 2 charger installation. Most residential EV owners will want to have a house-installed Level 2 charger.  An outdoor wall will work, but a garage is ideal as you can tap into existing electrical lines and regulate temperature better out of the elements.  These installations require a 240v circuit similar to electric clothes dryers or similar, high-voltage appliances.

Level 2 units generally charge 10-30 miles per hour and will achieve full range in about 8 hours. Installation costs are reasonable and allow the most flexibility and peace of mind for drivers.

Not sure what the difference is between level 1, 2, and 3 chargers?

Level 1 charging is the slowest and can take between 8-20 hours.

Level 2 charging is faster and typically takes 4-9 hours.

Level 3 (Fast Charger) is the fastest and recharges in 20-40 minutes.
