Electric vehicles come with a basic charger that can be plugged into a standard 120-volt outlet. This type of charger is called a Level 1 charger. Unfortunately, Level 1 chargers can take up to 24 hours to fully charge an EV battery. You can expect to receive 3 to 5 miles of range per hour of charge. If you are only traveling short distances, this option may be okay. However, Level 1 chargers can present a problem for those who have longer journeys.
The solution is a Level 2 charger. By installing this advanced charging station in your home, you’ll enjoy 11 to 28 miles of range added per hour, which means your battery can reach full charge in as little as 4 to 6 hours. A Level 2 charger is typically mounted to a wall on the inside of a garage, and it requires a 240-volt circuit. You may also require an electrical panel upgrade to handle the new circuit. When you rely on Dutch Creek Electric for your EV charger installation, we’ll take care of every part of the process, from determining the best placement for the charger to installing the 240-volt circuit to performing any necessary upgrade of your electrical panel.

You might be wondering if purchasing an EV and installing a charging station will really save you money, since you still have to pay for the electricity needed to charge your car. The answer is yes. The cost of electricity is cheaper than gas to power your vehicle. According to a recent study by Consumer Reports, EV owners typically save between $800 to $1,000 a year on fuel costs. This amounts to anywhere between $6,000 to $10,000 in fuel savings over the life of the electric vehicle.
Lower Maintenance & Repair Costs
Decreasing the amount you’ll pay for fuel is not the only way you can save money with an EV. Consumer Report’s analysts have also found that electric vehicles are cheaper to maintain than gasoline-powered vehicles. The average savings on maintenance and repairs enjoyed by the EV owner is about $4,600 over the lifetime of the vehicle.
