You’ve decided to invest in an electric or plug-in hybrid car to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, decrease your household’s carbon footprint, and save on vehicle expenses. And now you are looking for Toronto EV charger installation service for your home? We are here to help you through every step of the process.
Electric vehicles (EVs) can be recharged at different speeds depending on the capacity of the battery. Charging capacity can be divided into three categories:
- Level 1 charging includes plugging in a standard cord set that comes with all EVs into a wall socket. This is the slowest level of charging (110 Volts/15 Amps) with an approximately 8 km range per hour of charging.
- Level 2 charging is the most common level of charging with similar requirements to a clothing dryer or stove. Level 2 chargers can be installed in homes and commercial facilities by licensed electricians. They charge slightly faster than Level 1 chargers (240 Volts/30 Amps) with approximately 35 km range per hour of charging.
- Level 3 charging/direct current (DC) is the fastest level of charging (400 Volts/100 Amps). Level 3 stations charge a battery from empty to 80% in 30-45 minutes with approximately 250 km range per hour of charging.
