How to install electric vehicle home charging stations in the United States

Electric cars in the United States have become quite popular, and many friends around me have changed electric vehicles, and under the influence of friends, I also ordered a Model 3 this month.

Regarding electric vehicles, the most concerned is the problem of battery life, although battery technology has made great progress in recent years, but the charging problem of electric vehicles is still an important factor for everyone to consider when starting electric vehicles.

In the past ten years, the United States has also built a large number of charging stations, but the United States has a large land area, low population density, and the per capita charging stations ownership is much lower than that of China.

However, most people in the United States live in houses, and installing home charging stations solves this problem well. Today we will talk about how to install electric vehicle chargers in the United States.

Classification of charging stations

According to the different output power performance of the charging stations, the electric vehicle charging stations is divided into three grades: level 1 (slow charge), level 2 (fast charge), and level 3 (overcharge, also known as DC fast charger, referred to as DCFC).

level 1
The first-level charging stations can be charged on a standard household power outlet, using a household 120V or 230V power supply, providing a current in the range of 12A-16A, charging 3-4 miles in an hour, and charging a 24kw battery in 16 hours.

level 2
The secondary charging stations is usually suitable for commercial places, or household charging stations, the working voltage is 240 V, the current is between 15A-80A, the secondary charging is much faster than the primary charging, the charging time is about 4 hours, and it can fully charge any electric vehicle overnight.

level 3
Three-level charging stations is also DC charging stations, we call it super charging stations, this type of charging stations uses an external charger to directly provide up to 400A of high-voltage DC power to the vehicle battery, does not need carrier board charging control, output current power is larger, typical 24kw battery charging time does not exceed 30 minutes.

This kind of charging stations is generally distributed in gas stations or shopping malls, the current 15% of the charging network in North America is this kind of charging stations, emergency use is very good, such as Blink, Chargepoint, Electrify America, WilwinEV, Tesla Supercharger and other manufacturers have layout.

Whether it is necessary to install a home EV charging station?

Although the US electric vehicle market has become very popular, the US government and enterprises are also frantically building charging stations, whether it is shopping malls, gas stations, or supermarket parking lots, there are charging stations everywhere. But as an electric car owner, I still hope to install a charging stations at home, after all, it is convenient. And most people in the United States live in houses, with independent garages or parking lots, which is much simpler than domestic communities fighting wits with property in underground garages to install charging stations.

According to a survey by Columbia University's Center for Global Energy, two-thirds of electric vehicle owners in the United States have installed home chargers at home, and more than 80% of charging behavior occurs at home.

1. Cheap
In many places in the United States, electricity bills are divided into peaks and valleys, and you can set a good time period to charge, and you can save a lot of money every month. Compared with fuel vehicles, this cost is basically negligible.

2. Convenient and worry-free
The biggest advantage of installing a household charging stations is that it is convenient and worry-free. If your car needs are mainly commuting, drive home every night, plug in and charge, basically do not have to consider the problem of additional charging for a year, unless you go to long-distance self-driving on holidays and need to spend money on the road to charge. Usually drive a car out to charge, the time cost is not the cost?

3. Policy support
In order to encourage everyone to buy new energy vehicles, many states in the United States have developed incentive programs, such as California, all California residents can enjoy the California Clean Fuel Incentive Program, no matter which power company provides their electricity, incentive programs include electric vehicle discounts, charging stations discounts, or adjusting the charging time rate to help customers save costs.
