How to Choose the Best EV Charger for Your Business
Just as there are many types of electric vehicles, there are many types of chargers as well. Finding the right charger for you will mean determining what your vehicle needs, as well as what your existing electrical system can handle.
Electric vehicle chargers are broken up into three main categories:
Level 1 charger: This simple unit is usually included with the purchase of your electric vehicle, and plugs into a standard 120-volt outlet. Depending on the capacity of your vehicle’s battery, it takes around 12 hours to reach a full charge. This is a good option for those who do not spend much time driving, but may not be ideal for those who are more on-the-go – particularly here in Los Angeles.
Level 2 charger: The next step up allows for much faster charging, with vehicles reaching a full charge in 4-6 hours. However, because they require 240 volts to operate, installing one of these systems may also require you to upgrade your property’s electrical panel.
Level 3 Charger: The top tier of electric vehicle chargers, also known as a DC Fast Charger, will have your electric vehicle battery topped off in the amazing time of 30 minutes to an hour. The level 3 charger may be unnecessary for most homeowners who drive less than 30 miles a day, but are the perfect fit for businesses that need to keep their electric vehicles operable throughout the day.
How Long Does It Take to Charge a Tesla?
Tesla is one of the most popular electric cars on the market today. With the company constantly innovating and producing newer models, the charging time for each car differs. The 2021 Tesla Model Y takes around 10 hours to charge at 220V. The Model S needs around 96.7 hours. It’s important to check the model and battery type of the Tesla to know for sure how long it will take to charge.
Given the popularity of Teslas, it’s important for businesses to have charging stations that help this car. If you’re interested in installing an EV Charging Station at your business, contact Southwest Industrial Electric today.
