Choosing the Right Electrical Vehicle Charging Station
When deciding on the perfect electric vehicle charging station for your Twin Falls or Jerome, ID home, it’s important to know the different levels. There are two basic types of charging stations to choose from:
- Level 1: These chargers don’t require professional installation but they are a lot less powerful than level 2 chargers. Level one chargers only require a 120-volt outlet and take longer to charge your electric vehicle.
- Level 2: Level 2 chargers are the recommended charging stations. They provide the most power and can quickly have your vehicle fully charged. However, because of their strength, not every electrical panel is made to sustain these chargers. If your existing panel box can’t handle it, our electricians can install a 240-volt to provide your home with enough electrical power to handle it.
After you’ve chosen your electric vehicle charging station, you need to pick an electric rate that is best suited for your station. We often recommend the EV2-A rate which can save you money over time, as the rate lowers at certain times of the day. However, if you want two separate electric rates, an EV-B rate is the best option for you.
After you’ve gotten your EV charging station installed, it’s important to have proper outdoor lighting so you can easily charge your vehicle even after sundown.
