How do I know which charging station to choose?
We consult with you decide which charging station suites your needs, and how best to implement the stations/systems. There are commonly three different types of charging stations on the market - the AC L1, AC L2, and the DC Quick Charge. Typically residential customers will want an AC L1 or AC L2 and commercial customers will want an AC L2 or DC Quick Charge station.
Are electric cars really feasible? Are there really enough charging stations available?
Currently funded by the federal and local governments, in partnership with the local utilities more than 14,000 chargers will be deployed in 18 major cities and metropolitan areas located in six states in the next few years - not including what commercial and residential customers install on their own! In San Diego alone, there are over 1,000 public access (240V) chargers and 30 Dual Port DC Fast Chargers.
Will charging be free at these remote locations, or will I have to pay?[back to top]
The real answer is, it depends. Some commercial companies incentivize customers and employees to drive electric vehicles and provide free charging. Other companies may charge $1/hr charge. Currently, there is also a network of chargers that use membership cards that track your charging and then can charge your account directly.
How much does it cost to fully charge an electric car?[back to top]
Based on a US average of $0.11/kWh, a full charge will cost about $2.75 for a Nissan Leaf on a typical home. Utilities also incentivize charging during off-peak hours by providing lowest rates possible.
