Types of EV Chargers
An electric vehicle’s ability to quickly recharge depends on two things: a home’s electrical supply and the EV charging unit used. EV chargers are broken down into three levels. Level one chargers are the slowest, while level three chargers are the fastest.
Level 1 Chargers
A level 1 charger comes standard with an electric vehicle. Because they use a home’s standard outlet, these chargers are most useful for slow overnight charges.
Level 2 Chargers
Level two chargers do their job faster but require an electrician for installation. These chargers need a dedicated 240-volt circuit to supply a current strong enough to charge an electric vehicle at a faster rate. Level 2 chargers can add approximately 70 miles of range for each hour of charging! These are the most popular options for home charging.
Level 3 Chargers
Level 3 EV chargers are incredibly fast but require an industrial supply of power, making them difficult for homeowners to install. These charging stations can recharge an electric vehicle’s battery to 80% in only 30 minutes. Level 3 chargers are not typically possible to install at home.
Choosing the Right EV Charger
Identifying your needs is the most crucial step in charging your electric car at home. While many people are fine with charging their car overnight with a level 1 charger, many prefer the flexibility provided by a level 2 charger.
When an installer comes to your home, they’ll help with the following issues related to EV charging stations:
Deciding your home’s ability to support a level 2 charger
Picking the right charger for your car model
Upgrading electrical systems as needed for safe operation
Home EV installation according to National Electrical Code and local codes
What Amperage Do I Need on My Breaker Panel for EV Charger Installation?
To install a Level 2 charger, you will probably need a 150 amp or 200 amp service. For 100 amp service or less, your EV or Tesla charger will probably take up too much capacity for your home. You may need to consider an upgrade for lower amp service. We recommend installing a 200 amp service to ensure you have enough capacity to handle the electrical demands of your home.
