What Size EV Charger Should You Install for Your Car?
Electric car charging stations often pull a great deal of electricity. Depending on the type of charger you want to install, often, you will need an upgrade to your current electric service. When choosing an electric car, there are many varying sizes and capacities. The chargers to charge these vehicles depend on your existing electric service in your home.
There are three levels of electric vehicle chargers:
- Level 1 is a standard 120-volt wall outlet. Most homeowners are likely to have this already in their garages. However, charging your vehicle using such an outlet may take longer.
- Level 2 uses a 240-volt wall outlet and is one of the most preferred chargers for many homes with their own EV charging station.
- Level 3 uses DC Fast Chargers and is mostly used for commercial and industrial charging stations.
