Do you have the ability to charge your vehicle at home?

Yes, I can charge at home.

If you have a garage, carport or driveway with access to electricity, you can probably charge at home. There are two primary home charging options.

  • Level 1 120V charging (standard household outlet)
  • Level 2 240V charging (requires installation and/or 240V outlet)

No, I can't charge at home.

Public charging is likely available, but keep in mind it takes time and prices vary substantially. Charging time varies based on car battery size and charger power.

  • Level 2 240V charging: 4 to 8 hours
  • Level 3 480V+ charging: 20 to 30 minutes (Not for PHEVs)

An EV will likely reduce your environmental impact.

 

Where does your electricity come from?

Utilities generate electricity various ways. This includes using fossil fuels, such as coal, natural gas and oil, as well as non-fossil sources like hydro, wind, solar and nuclear. Learn more

 

Public charging electricity sources

Electricity at public charging stations comes from utilities as well, but it may be difficult to determine which utility serves a specific station, thus CO2 rates may vary.
