Electric Vehicle Charging

Electric Vehicle (EV) charging refers to the process of supplying electrical energy to recharge the battery of an electric vehicle. EV charging infrastructure is a critical component of the electric vehicle ecosystem, enabling drivers to charge their vehicles at home, work, or public charging stations.

EV Charging Levels

  • 1

    Level 1 (120V)

    This is the slowest charging option and typically uses a standard household electrical outlet. It provides a charging rate of around 2-5 miles of range per hour of charging. Level 1 charging is mainly used for overnight charging at home.

  • 2

    Level 2 (240V)

    Level 2 charging is faster than Level 1 and is commonly used in residential and public charging stations. It can provide about 10-30 miles of range per hour, depending on the charger's power output and the vehicle's capability.

  • 3

    Level 3 (DC Fast Charging)

    DC fast charging is the quickest option, delivering high-power DC electricity directly to the EV's battery. It can provide approximately 60-80 miles of range in just 20-30 minutes. These chargers are typically found at public charging stations along highways and major routes.
