Charging your electric vehicle (EV) at home is cheaper and more convenient than using commercial chargers.

Seal Solar’s certified electricians can install a charger to help you get more out of your EV. There are many details to consider when choosing an EV charger that best suits your needs.

Level 1: Home Charging

Level 1 charging cords usually come standard when you purchase an EV. These chargers are the easiest to integrate into your current home because they use a standard 3 prong 120V outlet. Although Level 1 chargers are convenient, they are also the slowest chargers giving your EV about 40 miles of range in an 8-hour overnight charge. Overnight Level 1 charging might be adequate for low- and medium-range plug-in hybrids and for all-electric drivers with a low daily driving range.

Level 2: Home and Public Charging

Level 2 charging requires a 240V circuit which can be installed by the certified electricians at Seal Solar.  While the charge rate varies depending on the vehicle, you can usually expect about 280 miles during an 8-hour charging period. Level 2 chargers are the most commonly used in public spaces such as grocery stores, offices, and parking garages. Public Level 2 chargers have a standard plug that fits all EVs other than Teslas, which come with the required adapter.

Level 3: DC Fast Charging

DC Fast Charging is currently the fastest charging method for electric vehicles. DC Fast Chargers can typically add 50 to 90 miles in about 30 minutes depending on your EV. Tesla’s Superchargers are even faster, providing up to 250 miles of range in a half-hour. DC Fast chargers are most useful for long car trips, drivers with limited home charging, or cars in use most of the day. Level 3 chargers are currently only available for commercial or public use and usually require payment.
