WHAT ARE The Benefits of Electrical Charging at Home?
One of the most important aspects of electric-vehicle ownership is how you will charge it. Residential charging is convenient and inexpensive. By charging at home, you take advantage of low, stable residential electricity rates. The cost to run your car over the course of a year can be less than running an air conditioner.
Control when you charge and take advantage of off-peak rates. There are massive
operating savings when driving an EV. For a Tesla model S (92 kWh battery), a full charge costs $7.36 when charged on off-peak hours with comparable range to internal combustion engines. Quite the savings compared to traditional fossil fuel costs to fill a tank!
Bring the convenience home! No one wants to drive for hours, line up and wait while your car charges. Ensure convenience and easy of use from the comfort of your own home.
Ease of Adoption & Installation
A level 1 charging station uses a standard 110V outlet, while a level 2 charging station requires a 240V outlet – both are simple upgrades to an existing home
and electrical service!
Remain in control of your charging assets. No worries of third-party issues such as: software errors, network connection issues or defective and malfunctioned units.
Improve Property Value
Electric vehicles are here to stay. A home charging station is a long-term investment, one that will remain for many years as the adoption of electric vehicles increases. You can expect demand for EV chargers at home to increase as the adoption of electric vehicles soars and becomes mainstream.
Your car is charging at your home, not in a public area where it could be subject to the
elements and potentially vandalism or theft.
