Buy A Home Charger
A level two (240V) charger offers much faster charging at home. While the 120V electric outlet charger that comes standard with most Plug-in All-Electric and Plug-In Hybrid Electric vehicles provides 2-5 miles of range per hour, a level two charger works up to nine-times faster - giving you 10-20 miles of range per charging hour.
Some chargers have Wi-Fi capability, which can pair with a smart phone app to conveniently program and remotely control your charging, allowing you to take advantage of off-peak cost savings.
Level Two (240V) chargers must be professionally installed. The age of your home, your electrical panel capacity (and where it is located), can affect the final cost of putting an electric vehicle charger in your home. The cost of parts and labor can vary widely, typically ranging from $1,200 to $2,000. It’s best to get a few quotes from certified electricians. Some states also require homeowners to get a permit, which can add to the cost.
EV Incentives and Programs
Residential customers can participate in charging programs and earn incentives to help reduce EV charging costs and increase efficiency and reliability of the power grid.
