6 Questions To Ask Before Buying An EV Charging Station
One of the biggest advantages EV owners have is the ability to recharge their cars from the comfort of their home, or better yet, at your place of employment. Yet many companies still have a lot of questions when it comes to the wide variety of charging stations and options out there.
EVConnect put together this infographic which sheds some light on EV chargers for companies and organizations looking to provide their EV-driving employees with a number of benefits.
For example, what are the differences between Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3 EV chargers, and what’s a “dumb” charger versus a “smart” charger? And how many EV chargers should you install?
The most important question EV owners are going to ask though is “How much will it cost me?” Charging stations started out costing over $2,000, but these days companies like Clipper Creek offer Level 2 chargers for under $400, though installation can still cost a pretty penny. There’s also the question of how to manage a network of EV Chargers, which EVConnect would be happy to help with.
Check out the infographic below, which hopefully answers all your questions about EV charging stations.
