EV Charging Installation in Bellevue WA
Electric cars are as popular as ever, and manufacturers are introducing new models on an almost monthly basis. Besides ensuring an almost neutral carbon footprint, another benefit to electric vehicles is that you can charge them at home.
Although you don’t need a home EV charging station to charge your electric vehicle, using the standard outlet will take hours to fully charge the batteries. For instance, if you’re using a standard 120V outlet to fully charge a 40kWh battery can take up to 17 hours. This means it takes an hour for the battery to have enough charge for around 5 miles. If you don’t like relying on public EV chargers, the best solution for you is to install a level 2 charger in your home.
A level 2 EV home charger uses 240V power, which is the same voltage your dryer and washing machine use. With this type of charger, you’ll be able to charge your EV between 12 and 60 miles of range per hour. What this means for you is that with a home charger you’ll be able to fully charge your EV overnight.
