Where and How to Charge
You will likely charge your vehicle overnight at home using Level 1 or Level 2 charging. Level 1 charging requires no special equipment or installation – all you need is a standard outlet. For Level 2 charging, you will need to purchase and install Level 2 electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE). The cost of installing Level 2 EVSE varies considerably.
For more information about costs of EVSE installation, check out the PEV Handbook for Consumers.
Be sure to notify your utility company so that they can confirm that they are readyto reliably serve the electricity needs of your EV.
