Installing an EV Home Charging Station
If you’re interested in installing an electric vehicle charging station in your home, Starling Chevrolet is here to help. Chevrolet vehicles have long been at the forefront of innovation and technology, and the high-tech alternative energy models available here at our dealership are no exception. That’s why we’re sharing all you need to know about purchasing an electric vehicle, like how to have a charging station installed in your home.
How Do I Get a Charging Station Installed?
There are three levels of charging for electric vehicles, Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3, or DC fast charging. Level 1 charging is relatively low, which is why it’s the best option for plug-in hybrid models. Electric vehicles, which have much larger batteries, typically use Level 2 charging at home or work.
Level 3 charging provides a very high voltage, which isn’t available for most residential homes, but can be found at public charging stations. When installing a home charging station, it’s most likely that you’ll be working with Level 2 charging, as Level 1 charging can be connected to the average home outlet.
When deciding on what kind of charging system to install into your home, always consider what kind of charging accessories are available with the vehicle and what capacity your home has for power output. The best part? Chevrolet might cover the costs of standard installation of a home charging station for you!
