Types of Electric Vehicle Charging Stations Available
At Casco Bay Electric, we offer electric vehicle charging station installation for both commercial and residential use. As more and more customers are using electric cars, local businesses realize the importance of having an EV charging station to help promote green energy while becoming a reliable stop for those customers with electric vehicles. Until EV charging stations become more readily available, vehicle owners have the option to charge their vehicles at home. Learn more about our electric vehicle charging station options below.
- Level 1: 110V – Level 1 charging stations are a low-power EV charging station that is included with most new electric vehicle purchases. They are ideal for residential use because they can be plugged right into a standard wall outlet. However, they only provide about five miles per hour charges, so they aren’t ideal for many long distance commuters.
- Level 2: 240V– When you require faster charge times and more power, the Level 2 Charging Station is the right choice. This charging system is ideal for most new electric vehicles as it provides about 25 miles per hour charged. However, they do require a special hookup. Our professional electricians can install a Level 2 Charging Station for your home.
- Level 3: 480V – Business owners that want to expand their customer base need a fast and reliable charging station installed by a licensed electrician. Installing a level 3: 480V charging station ensures that your customer receives fast charging while they’re on the go. Its compact design means it can be installed nearly anywhere, including supermarkets, gas stations, coffee shops, and shopping centers.
Why It’s Important to Choose a Licensed Electrician
If you’re considering installing an electric vehicle charging station, it’s essential to choose a licensed and insured electric company to ensure it’s safe for your customers, family, and vehicle. At Casco Bay Electric, we have access to the latest equipment and follow comprehensive installation guidelines, so you can feel confident you’re getting high-quality services.
