Looking to Install an Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Station In Your Home Or Business?
As electric vehicles become more popular, the need for charging stations is increasing. If you own an Electric Vehicle EV or are considering purchasing one, a charging station is something you will need to have. With our experience installing EV chargers, Thompson can help you find the correct charger for your home or business in the Sioux City, Sioux Falls, and Omaha areas.
Level 1: A level-one charger uses a dedicated essential home outlet with a 120-volt circuit as a residential charging station. A driver can fully charge a car at home with this charging station within 24 to 40 hours.
A Level 1 charging station is the simplest and lowest financial investment; the downside is the slow battery recharging time.
Level 2: The most common commercial EV charging station type, level-two chargers run on 240-volt circuits the same as your electric dryer. Level-two chargers require between eight and 10 hours to charge a car fully.
Level 3: Otherwise known as direct-current DC Fast Charging can charge your battery to approximately 80% in 30 minutes. Equipment charges and upgrades to infrastructure make DC fast chargers the most expensive and quickest way to charge your vehicle.
Most residential areas would not have enough grid energy to have a Level 3 installed on their property.
Thompson can help you navigate the correct type of charger and installation and suggest rebates available in your area to offset the costs of your EV Charging Station costs.
