Although the technology behind an electric vehicle seems complex, the charging process is quite simple. Much like powering up a phone or electronic device, you charge an electric car by connecting it to a specialized charging station with a cord.
There are two types of chargers that owners of electric cars can have in their homes:
Most electric car owners find it worthwhile to upgrade to a level 2 charger. For example, a BMW ActiveE takes 23 hours to charge fully with a level 1 charger and only 4.5 to 8.5 hours to charge fully with a level 2 charger. One of the trained electricians from Chesapeake Electric can install one of these efficient chargers into your home so you can shave off charging time and hit the road!

We recommend evaluating your electrical service panels months in advance prior to purchasing an electric car.
