While you can always charge your vehicle at a public charging station, it is much more convenient to have a charging station at home. Not only does it save you time, but it also saves you money, as you can take advantage of lower electricity rates at night.
To set up a home charging station, you will need to have an EV charger installed at your property by a licensed electrician. It is important to make sure to choose a charging station that is compatible with your electric vehicle, as different models may require different charging stations, but the team here at Pat Kirk Ltd are happy to advise you in this process.
Once you have your charging station installed, you can easily charge your car overnight or whenever it is parked at home. Many electric vehicle owners find that having a home charging station is one of the most convenient and cost-effective ways to keep their car charged and ready to go.
To find charging stations, there are several apps and websites available such as PlugShare, ChargePoint, and EVgo. These apps allow you to search for charging stations near your location and provide information on the type of charger and availability. Additionally, depending on the EV which you purchase, some will come with built-in navigation systems that provide charging station locations and real-time availability.
