The Benefits of Installing an Electric Vehicle Charger

The Benefits of Installing an Electric Vehicle Charger from an Bentonville Electrician.
  Although the costs to drive an electric vehicle are quite low compared to buying fuel for a conventional vehicle, it takes significant time to recharge the batteries after a trip. Most vehicles come with a Level 1 charger, which can plug into a standard 120-volt outlet but needs as long as 18 hours to fully charge a vehicle, depending on the battery capacity. A dedicated Level 2 charger installed by an electrician uses a 240-volt circuit and can deliver more power to your vehicle in less time.
   The benefits of installing a dedicated electric vehicle charger include: Reducing charge time from as high as 18 hours to as little as 3 hours Allowing your vehicle to charge fully overnight as you sleep Reducing your dependence on public charging stations Enabling you to take advantage of off-peak electricity rates, if available in your area A Level 2 charger can make owning and driving an electric vehicle more enjoyable and convenient.
