Charging station types and charging levels
There are a number of options when it comes to selecting the type of charging station that best suits your needs.
- AC Level 1 Charging allows you to use existing infrastructure; you can simply plug into a standard electrical outlet.
- Faster charging options such as Level 2 or Level 3 require the installation of charging equipment but allow for quicker charging times.
AC Level 1 (120V/15A)
Level 1 charging refers to charging through a standard home or business outlet through a 120-volt alternating-current plug.
- No installation of charging equipment is necessary for Level 1 charging.
- The charging cord has a standard three-prong household plug on one end and a connector on the other end to plug into the vehicle.
- This charging level is ideal for easy charging at home or the office, and usually does not require you to make changes to your electric panel or wiring.
- Depending on the vehicle and size of the battery, Level 1 charging can take eight to 20 hours to fully recharge a depleted battery.
AC Level 2 (240V/30-10A)
Level 2 charging refers to charging through 208/240-volt alternating-current charging equipment.
- This charging level can require the installation of charging equipment or modification of your existing electrical system.
- This charging level can recharge an EV in four to five hours - significantly faster than AC Level 1 charging.
- Charging an EV using 240 volts is similar to adding a large appliance, such as a clothes a dryer, which results in a greater electrical draw and might require upgrading electrical service.
DC Fast Charging
DC Fast Charging or Level 3 Charging refers to charging at 480VAC.
- It delivers the fastest charging rate and can recharge a battery EV in less than 30 minutes.
- It requires the installation of charging equipment.
- The name "DC Charging" can be misleading. Batteries store DC power so the AC power from the electric grid must be converted to DC power. In the case of DC Fast Charging, the AC/DC conversion occurs in the charging equipment rather than in the vehicle's AC/DC convertor so that the power entering the vehicle is already in DC form.
- DC Fast Charging can enable rapid charging between work shifts and during breaks.
- These chargers are also well suited for public areas and highway rest areas.

Electrical system requirements for vehicle charging
In some cases, an upgrade to the electrical system in your home or businesses may be needed. To determine if this is necessary:
- Identify the vehicle charging requirements from the manufacturer or local supplier.
- Talk with a licensed electrician about your home or business and the requirements of the electric fleet you are introducing.
- If a system upgrade is necessary, obtain any required permits.
- If your electrician determines that a utility upgrade is necessary, call us at 800-401-5666.
