Install an EV Home Charging Station with Starling Buick GMC

June 5th, 2022 by

When it comes to an electric vehicle charging station, installation and use don’t have to be overwhelming. Here at Starling Buick GMC, we believe that purchasing and maintaining an alternative energy vehicle should be easy. That’s why we’re sharing everything you need to know about installing a charging station in your home.

How Do I Install an EV Home Charging Station?

When it comes to charging an electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle, there are three different levels. Level 1 and Level 2 charging are the types you can do at home, which allows you to charge your vehicle overnight and extend the life of your vehicle’s battery.

Level 3, or DC Fast Charging,  is much faster because it uses a much higher voltage. Because of that, Level 3 charging typically isn’t available at home — residential units typically can’t support the higher level of voltage. When installing home charging stations, you will typically be working at Level 2 charging capacity, as Level 1 is already available from the average home outlet.

Electric and hybrid vehicles will come with the charging accessories you need to plug your vehicle in and begin charging, but if you want to take the process up a notch, you may install a charging station. There are many different options and companies to pick from, and GMC can help you find home charging installation assistance.

You want to do your research and consider your charging needs, what kind of vehicle you drive, your resource capacity, and other essential factors when determining which charging station is right for your needs. Then simply call up the installation company and begin the process.
