Benefits of Charging Stations

Investing in EV Charging stations provides a reliable and sustainable way to power transportation needs while reducing dependence on fossil fuels.

Pros and Cons

If you have an electric car, having a charging station at home provides freedom and opportunity. Charging when you are home allows you to save money by choosing the time of day and, therefore, the rate of electricity. Electric vehicles can save a lot of money over the cost of gas and do not require oil changes or regular maintenance, making them a more affordable long-term choice for some owners. Having a charger at your home provides greater freedom and convenience, rather than needing to find public chargers, business chargers, or pay-as-you-go charger options.

Key Advantages include:

Convenience: Having an EV charging station at home means being able to charge your vehicle overnight without having to make frequent trips to public charging stations. This can save time and money in the long run, as well as reduce stress on the power grid during peak usage hours.

Sustainability: Electric vehicles produce fewer emissions than traditional gasoline-powered vehicles, and using an EV charging station further reduces your carbon footprint. Offering EV charging stations outside of your business can attract environmentally conscious customers and demonstrate a commitment to sustainability.

Incentives: Some states and municipalities offer incentives for businesses that install EV charging stations, such as tax credits or rebates. This can help offset the cost of installation and provide additional financial benefits.

Cost savings: Over time, owning an electric car can be more cost-effective than owning a gasoline-powered car due to lower fuel costs. Charging at home or at a business with free or low-cost charging options can help maximize these savings.

Level 1 Charging : Slow Chargers

Level 1 EV charger is usually the power chord charger that is usually given for free when you purchase an EV car. It’s a simple charger that is compatible with a wall outlet in your house to start charging your car since it only requires a single phase, AC configuration.

Due to its low charging output, these Level 1 chargers are more common for PHEV cars, or EV cars that you use only for short-distance traveling/weekend cars that you use occasionally.

Level 1 chargers are the type of chargers you use overnight or park and charge during your working hours. Usually owners would keep the charger inside the car, just in case they couldn’t find any charging spot for their car.

Level 2 Charging : Fast Chargers

Level 2 chargers are the type of ‘box’ chargers that you usually see in public spaces, where usually people park their cars for 1-2 hours to ‘top-up’ their vehicle while doing errands (shopping, meeting, exercise).

For those who are driving an EV as a daily-driven car, it is recommended to have a level 2 charger installed at your home for your own convenience. You will need to hire a third-party installer to help you do the installation as it will involve wiring to ensure the safety of the home circuit.

For level 2 chargers, you can either use a single-phase AC or a 3 phase AC. The maximum output for a single-phase AC is 7.68kW while a 3 phase AC is 22kW. Most home electrical configuration is single-phase AC, therefore an upgrade is required to support 3 phase charging.

With an average charging time of 4-8 hours, it is definitely much faster and more convenient than a level 1 charger.

Level 3 Charging : DC Fast Chargers

Level 3 charging is the fastest level of EV charging available. It is much more powerful than Level 2 chargers as it uses direct current (DC)s, thus why you would not find anyone installing it at their home. A Level 3 charger installation itself would cost more than the EV car!

While DC fast charger has a maximum output of 50kW, a Tesla Supercharger (only available for Tesla) would be able to deliver up to 120kW! 

Due to its high output capacity, level 3 chargers are commonly found on highways or routes where long-distance travel takes place.

It can recharge an EV to 80% as fast as 20 minutes depending on the charging station model. However, an average EV would take around an hour on a standard 50kW rapid charge point because the car will reduce charging speed as the battery gets closer to its full charge.

Common Questions

Do All EV Cars Use The Same Connectors?

No. There are several types of charging connectors available in the market. 

You should research the type that best meets your needs before purchasing.

Can I Install A Level 2 Charger At My House?

Yes. You may install a level 2 charger for your house by engaging any independent 3rd-party installer. Do note that it would require an electrical upgrade to your electrical system in order for it to provide a 3 phase output.

Where Do I Find A 3rd Party Installer?

You are at the right place! B&W Electric provides home EV chargers installation service. We help to consult the best solution, provide a top-quality charger and the best installation workmanship to ensure the safety of your car and your home.

Electrical Panel

Make sure that your electrical panel can handle EV charger installation.

Most EV chargers pull 30-50 amps of current. If the EV charger were the only thing on the whole panel you'd be fine either way. In reality, other appliances need amps, too. If your home has a 100-amp panel, you likely need to upgrade to a 200-amp panel before pursing a level 2+ EV charger.
