Electric Vehicle Charging in Maryland
Charging Your Electric Vehicle At Home
Most new electric vehicle owners use a standard 110v outlet or extension cord to charge their car. This is fine if you only plan to charge the car overnight and only drive 30-40 miles per day. This charging method is what is known as “level 1” Utilizing a 240 volt outlet (like your dryer and some other large appliances) will provide a “level 2” charge for your Tesla or other Electric Vehicle. A level 2 charging system will charge your electric vehicle at roughly double the rate of a 110v system.
Level 2 Charging Systems
Installing a level 2 charging system at your home or business will cut down on charge time allowing you to drive further every day. Utilizing a 240 volt system improves the efficiency of the electric current. Level 2 240-volt charging is a must especially for owners with multiple electric vehicles at home. Level 2 chargers can be installed with 3.6kWh or 7.2kWh capacity.
Promoting Clean Energy At Your Business
Providing electric vehicle charging systems at your place of business or other commercial setting helps to promote clean energy and longer customer visits at your location. More visitors will be attracted to your store or restaurant and spend more money over the time of their vehicle charge. An electric vehicle charging station in itself could also make a profitable addition to your location depending on demand in your area.
Many electric vehicle owners are unsure what charger style to use at their home. We recommend having a 240 volt circuit and receptacle installed in a location that is convenient for daily use. It is important to consult with a professional installer to make sure that circuit is appropriately sized for your home service and panel. Newer home electrical services may be able to support 7.2 kWh catching units while some older homes may not have capacity for increased load demand.
