Most drivers of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs)—which include all-electric vehicles (EVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs)—charge their vehicles overnight at home using AC Level 1or AC Level 2charging equipment.
RV plugs (14-50) are also considered level 2 chargers. Lastly, some public stations are level 3 chargers, also known as DCFC or DC Fast Chargers. These charging stations are the quickest way to charge a vehicle. Note that not every EV can charge at level 3 chargers.
For example, public car parks, particularly ones that serve shopping centres and supermarkets, are by far the best place to find free chargers. Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Lidl and Aldi all have free charging points in their car parks (at selected locations), for example.
Electricians can inform homeowners whether their home has adequate electrical capacity for vehicle charging. Some homes might have insufficient electric capacity for Level 2equipment. However, homeowners may have a qualified electrician add circuits to accommodate the capacity needed for Level 2 charging.
