Home EV Charging Station In Winnipeg
If you’ve been on the fence about buying an electrical vehicle, now’s the time to take the plunge. With Home EV charging stations in Winnipeg now, charging your electric car battery is faster and more convenient than ever. All cars have batteries, but an electric vehicle runs on that power completely instead of gas. It needs a charging station to keep the battery full. But you don’t need to drive to a public charging station to fill it up—instead, you can have a specialized outlet installed in your own home. At Powertec Electric, we can easily install an EV charging station at your house or commercial property.
What is an EV Charging Station?
With a standard vehicle, you typically don’t need to charge a car battery. An electric car is a bit different; it uses the batteries like a gas tank and needs regular top-ups. As such, you’ll need to charge it fairly regularly (depending on how often you use it). A charging station supplies your car with the electricity it needs to operate. When you install a charging station for your electric vehicle, you won’t need to leave the house to power your vehicle. Simply plug your car into the outlet and wait until it’s ready to go!
Say goodbye to stops at the gas station or waiting for hours to charge your car—with an EV charging station, you can fill your vehicle battery at your own home. You can’t enjoy the benefits of an electric vehicle with a dead battery. And who wants to travel elsewhere just to charge their car? We’ll install EV charging stations in your home to offer you convenience and accessibility.
There are a few different kinds of EV charging stations, which are divided into three levels:
Level 1 Charging
Having a Level 1 charging station is good in a pinch; you can recharge your car anywhere there’s a wall outlet. No specialized installation is required for this charger. The charging cord-set that comes with your electric vehicle is compatible with 120v wall sockets.
After charging your electric vehicle for 1 hour, you’ll get 8 KM of driving range. While a Level 1 charging station is the slowest, it’s also the most versatile—you can use it with any regular wall socket.
If you’re using a Level 1 charging station, be sure to plug your car in overnight. It may take as many as 20 hours before the vehicle’s battery is full.
Level 2 Charging
For most homeowners, a Level 2 charging station is what you need to cut down on charging times. Unlike Level 1 charging stations, a Level 2 will require a 240v circuit that’s dedicated to your electric vehicle. Once this is installed in your home, you’ll get 30 KM from 1 hour of charging—that means the battery will be charged after just 3 hours. It’s ideal for those who want convenient and fast charging times for their electric cars.
Level 3 Charging
These charging stations are more standard for commercial, industrial, or public use rather than residential. They offer the fastest charging times—in just half an hour, you’ll get 250 KM of driving range. But for that type of capacity, you’ll need a specialized installation.
