If you’re a landlord, a retailer, a developer, or own a commercial property, this is the time to shift to commercial EV charging stations. This is why:
In 2021, the sales for electric vehicles have gone up to 180% across the United States alone, and thousands are gaining interest in EVs.
As you’ve already guessed, the bigger percentage of EV owners are in the corporate world. So, to meet this growing demand, it’s essential to make available EV charging stations for your clients and employees.
First things first, if you’re looking to install EV charging stations on your commercial property, it’s essential to understand the different levels of charging stations available.
There are three types of chargers:
- Level 1 charging – uses 120 volt. It supports every electric vehicle, including plug-in hybrid cars. It charges the slowest; it can take between 6-12hours to fully charge, that is why it’s recommended for home use.
- Level 2 charging – is the most preferred for daily usage, and it offers faster charging than level 1. It can be installed at home, in public places such as malls, plazas, destinations areas and workplaces. They charge between 7-22kW, and it takes 3-5hrs to charge fully.
- Level 3 charging – this is the fastest charging station available; it uses direct current as opposed to the alternating current used by level 1 and level 2 chargers, and it charges at a rate of 3 to 20 miles per minute.
Level 3 chargers are a high-power charging station with a voltage of 400, which is why it’s rare to find them in residential areas, plus they cost tens of thousands of dollars.
So, if you need one for your commercial property, you have the option of level 2 and level 3 charging stations.
