Why the need for Electric Vehicle charging at home or in Commercial space?

With the global trend of countries moving towards zero-emission, there is a push toward electric vehicles. As the capabilities of electric cars increase, the demand for home electric car chargers and business electric car charging stations is increasing as well. And by installing EV Charging Stations today, you can stay ahead of this global trend. Sunderland Electric is ready to come to your home and install a unit that has the capability of charging your car at a faster rate than your regular outlets!


What are the Types of Electrical Vehicle (EV) Chargers?

The type of EV Charging Station you need to consider depends on the different levels of charging it offers. You can install an EV Charging Station at a residence or a commercial property. 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 chargers can recharge an electric vehicle’s battery to 80% in only 30 minutes. Level 3 chargers are not typically possible to install at home.
