By choosing to drive an electric vehicle, you’ve already taken a big step to decrease your carbon footprint and embrace greener living. Now let our team make your choice more convenient by installing an electric vehicle charging station at your home or business. Imagine having a fully charged vehicle in just a couple of hours without having to leave the comfort of your home. That’s what we provide at Kosmos Solar.
Level 1 EV Chargers
Electric vehicles come with a level 1 EV charger that fits a standard 120-volt wall outlet. These chargers are convenient, but slow. It can take 20 hours to fully charge a depleted vehicle with a level 1 charger. These chargers are best for people who only drive their vehicle on occasion, or who only go a few miles at a time.
Level 2 EV Chargers
These chargers are much more powerful than level 1 chargers. They are capable of fully charging a vehicle in just 3 hours. They use 240 volts of electricity and require a special installation procedure much like the one required to install an electric clothes dryer. Since this is more involved and requires some knowledge of wiring and safety measures, we recommend having a professional handle the installation for you.
Level 3 EV Chargers
Level 3 chargers are the ones you see lined up in front of shopping centers and office buildings, acting as charging stations for customers and employees. These are extremely efficient chargers that can completely charge an electric vehicle in 30-45 minutes. Unfortunately, they are not available for home installation, but Kosmos Solar can install level 3 EV chargers at your commercial or industrial property. Contact us today to schedule a consultation!
The Home Installation Process
We begin by consulting with you to learn more about your EV charging needs. Some customers do just fine with a level 1 charger, but most want the convenience and speed of a level 2. If you drive several hours each day or have a long commute, we recommend getting a level 2 charger installed in your home. It will save you time and money by charging your vehicle faster and helping you avoid gas usage (for hybrids) or running out of juice (for entirely electric vehicles).
Next, our technicians come to your home and perform an electrical audit to make sure your home is equipped for an additional high-voltage outlet. If it’s not, we can upgrade your panel during the same service call.
When it’s time to install the outlet, our team uses the industry’s best practices for safety. They get your charger up and running and test it to make sure it’s working right. They calibrate the charging station so that it purchases electricity when the rates are lowest, saving you money every time you charge your vehicle. Then they clean up the work area and make sure all your questions are answered before declaring the job done.
Solar-Powered EV Charging Stations
For the ultimate energy-efficient solution, you can pair a solar panel array with your electric vehicle charger. This allows you to capture renewable solar energy and convert it into the very electricity that will power your car, all right from your home! And who better to set it up for you than Kosmos Solar, the most trusted name in North Texas solar energy?
