Charging stations manage the electricity for recharging EVs. They are available at various levels.
- Level 1 charging is done at 120 volts, the voltage most commonly found in your home. Portable Level 1 charging equipment is provided with every new electric vehicle. There is no additional cost to the consumer other than making a 20-amp circuit and wall socket accessible from the car's parking space.
- Level 2 charging is done at 240 volts and is generally preferred because it's faster. Level 2 charging requires a separately installed charging station. Costs for purchasing and installing a Level 2 charging station at the home can range from $1,500 to $3,000, depending on the work required. Costs to purchase and install larger versions at the workplace can approach $5,000 to $15,000 per charging station.
- Level 3 charging (or fast charging) is intended for commercial and public charging locations - the electric version of a local gas station. Fast charging requires 480-volt circuits, rarely found in homes. Industry standards have not yet been developed for Level 3 charging stations, but cost estimates for their installation in commercial and public settings range from $25,000 to $75,000 per charging station.
