Electric Vehicle (EV) Charger Installation San Antonio

Choosing a Charger – EV Charger Types

Level 1 Charging Station – 120 Volt (uses standard home outlet)

Level 1 charging means charging by simply plugging your EV into a normal household electrical outlet (with an adapter that comes with your EV). For a Nissan Leaf, charging this way yields 4-5 miles of range per hour of charging, or about 22 hours for a full charge.

This seems like a long charge time, but consider that 80% of US drivers drive less than 40 miles per day.  This means that the typical EV will not require a “full” charge each night, and could easily recharge in the hours while the car is idle in the garage.

Level 2 Charger – 240 Volt (same voltage used by your refrigerator)

Level 2 charging stations vary in their output from 3.3 kW (40 miles of range for 3 hour charge) to 16.8 kW (40 mile range with 40 minutes of charge).  The optimal home charger usually fits somewhere in between, depending on your average commute and whether you have access to a charging station at work.  Level 2 EV chargers require installation by qualified installers.

DC Fast Charging – High Speed EV Charging for Texas public charging networks

Public EV charging stations require fast charging, in order to facilitate short but worthwhile charging stops.  You will notice an expanding number of electric vehicle charging stations sprouting up at your most common destinations across Texas and throughout the US. New EV chargers are being installed at supermarkets, coffee shops, malls, airports, along major highway rest areas and at your workplace.
