Charging Made Easy
When it comes to selecting the best charging station for your EV, you've got options. Whether you need at-home, at-work, or on-the-road charging, there's a charger that's just the right fit for your needs. Let us help you find it!
Charging at Home
Home sweet home has its benefits. Install a charging station in an easy-to-access spot (like your garage or carport) for a convenient, low-cost way to charge your EV at home. Most EV owners choose to charge overnight when electricity is cheapest and they're sound asleep.
Save money by planning your charging while you sleep, when electricity prices are low. During the day, prices are slightly higher. Your energy supplier can give you more details about specific times and programs in your area to help you save.

Home Charging Options
Level 1 and Level 2 chargers are suitable for charging at home. We can help you determine which is a better fit for you!
Level 1 Chargers
Level 1 chargers are included with the purchase of an electric vehicle. They don't require any special equipment to install and use, but take longer to reach full charge than Level 2 chargers.
- Plugs into standard 120 volt wall outlet
- Adds about 4 miles of range per hour of charging time
- Very portable, even fits in the "frunk" (front-trunk)
Level 2 Chargers
Residential Level 2 chargers get your EV to full charge much faster than Level 1 chargers. They're simple to install, and most EV owners have them installed in a garage or carport, but outdoor-rate electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) is available as well.
- Uses 240-volt outlet (similar to what's used for an electric stove or clothes dryer)
- Costs vary depending on the model - anywhere from $300-$2,000
- Adds about 25-40 miles of range per hour
- May need a technician to install
- Rebates are often available (hyperlink to incentives page)
- Smart models can be programmed to charge during low-cost hours
Charging at Work
Most people spend at least 8 hours a day at work - so why not take advantage of that time? Charging stations are a great way for companies to reduce their carbon footprint and provide a nice perk for employees. Plus, they're relatively simple and inexpensive to install.
Charging on the Road
There are already thousands of public charging stations across the United States, and the number keeps growing every week. Many public charging station are free, and others are pay-to-use.
Public Charger Options
Almost all public charging stations use Level 2 chargers, and often have multiple connector types so they can charge multiple EVs. For even faster charging, look for DC Fast-Charging stations.
DC charging - also known as Level 3 charging - is the fastest way to get to a full charge. Unlike Level 1 and Level 2 chargers, which utilize a converter, DC Fast-Charging connects directly to the EV's battery, so it can charge the battery from depleted to full in under an hour.
- Nearly full charge in less than an hour
- Three types of DC fast-chargng: Combined Charging System (CCS), CHAdeMO, and Tesla Supercharger
- 2,500+ DC Fast-Charging locations across the country, and more popping up every week.
