Choosing Your Chargers

April 13, 2011

Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) is available in three different charging levels (Level 1, Level 2, and DC Fast Charge). To determine the proper mix of charging stations for your city, consider the costs, time to charge, locations and power requirements of each option and balance your needs with your available budget. Also includes tax breaks, siting considerations, installation costs, safety and maintenance, vehicle communication, and more resources. Advanced planning, such as locating near power, pre-installing conduit during parking lot refurbishment, can avoid costs of installing the conduit and EVSE later.
