Electric Vehicles are environment-friendly and clean-powered and are here to stay for very long. The EV market is rising rapidly and it is being interpreted that soon electric vehicles are going to take over the automotive industry. The one thing that is common in all-electric vehicles is the high-amp batteries. These batteries need to be charged approximately every 400 kilometres at an EV charging station. However, the number of charging stations has not increased compared to the proportion of purchases of electric vehicles.
If you are thinking of installing a Commercial EV charger or even a Home EV charger, there is no better time to do so. By the year 2030, the roads of the US will have about 18 million electric vehicles (EVs). Those EVs would require a minimum of 9.6 million charging ports. Installing an EV charging station at home for your personal use or commercially has numerous benefits.
Read on and let’s know more about what you will need before installing a charging station commercially or at home.
Home EV Charger Installation
If you are looking at buying an Electric Vehicle or already own one then you should consider installing a charger. Putting up a charging station in your own home is not just incredibly convenient but is also much simpler than most electric vehicle owners/drivers assume.
- Understanding how the charger works
If you are planning to install an EV charger at your home then it is better that you understand the basics of how it will charge your vehicle.
A home charging station does not actually charge your vehicle, instead, it provides the vehicle’s on-board charger with the traditional alternating current, which then converts the alternating current into direct current and stores it in the battery of the vehicle.
- Choose and Consider from the Different Level Chargers
Presently there are three level chargers available in the market for you to choose from. The chargers that are suitable for home are Level 1 and Level 2 chargers. Level 3 chargers are high-voltage and fast charges, suitable for commercial use.
When selecting a charger, selected based on the type of vehicle you own or are planning to buy, your driving frequency, the distance you travel and lastly how fast you want your vehicle’s battery to charge.
- Cost of Home Charging and Utilities
When you are calculating the cost it is not just the cost of the charging station but you also need to add the cost of electricity.
