EV Charging Station

Go For EV

According to data from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), more than 300,000 battery electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles were collectively registered throughout the year – almost four times the number of diesel cars sold. This growth will only increase, with a CAGR of 13.89% projected between now and 2027, leading to sales of more than 637,000 new EVs per annum.

As a result, alongside the burgeoning growth of the used EV marketplace, demand for charging solutions continues to increase at pace. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), this will continue to see both public and private infrastructure grow rapidly – with significant investment expected in support.

Types of EV Charging Stations

Level 1 (120 V)

Ampage: 15-20
Locations (Commonly): Home, Workplace
Power delivery: 1.4 kW
Range per hour charging: 7-8 miles

Level 1 charging works well for plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) because they have smaller batteries, currently less than 25 kWh. Since EVs have much larger batteries, Level 1 charging is too slow for most daily charging.

Level 2 (208-240 V)

Ampage: Up to 80
Locations (Commonly): Home, Workplace
Power delivery: 3.7 - 7.7 kW
Range per hour charging: 10-26 miles

Level 2 charging is the most commonly used level for daily EV charging. Most EV owners choose to install Level 2 charging equipment at their residence, because it charges the vehicle up to 10 times faster than Level 1 charging.

Level 3 (480-900 V)

Ampage: Up to 100
Locations (Commonly): Public
Power delivery: 50 kW
Range per hour charging: 180-1200 miles

Level 3 charging is the fastest type of charging available and can recharge an EV at a rate of 3 to 20 miles of range per minute. Unlike Level 1 and 2 charging that uses alternating current (AC), Level 3 charging uses direct current (DC).

Zero-Emission Vehicle Infrastructure (ZEVI) Program

Zero-Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program (ZEVI) is set to help the federal government’s goal for zero-emission vehicles (ZEV) to capture 10% of all light-duty vehicle (LDV) sales per year by 2025, 30% by 2030, and 100% by 2040. To lessen driver concerns about finding stations to charge their vehicles, ZEVI funding will go towards increasing the network of zero-emission vehicle charging (level 2 and higher) and refueling stations.

The Zero-Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program will provide successful applicants with up to 50% of total project costs up to a maximum of $5,000,000 per project.

In order to be eligible to receive funding for electric vehicle charging stations, applicants should be:
