Will you be purchasing an e-vehicle in the near future?
One of the things that you will need is a charging device. Just as there are several different models and types of e-vehicles on the market there are also several different charging options. The 240V hard-wired charger can be installed on off-peak and may qualify for a rebate. Is an e-vehicle right for you?
Just as there are different types of electric vehicles, there are 3 different types of chargers, differentiated by how fast they can charge the battery.
The following will vary on actual car used, charging station used, temperature, and time of charge:
Generally for every 1 kWh of electricity you will get a charge of 3 miles.
Example: 6 kW 240V charger - 1 hour of electricity use will get you a charge of approximately 18 miles.
The technology is similar to Ground Fault Circuit Interruptors (GFCI) found inside your home to protect you from electrical shocks.
