Types of Electric Vehicle Chargers & Electric Car Charging Stations

There are three levels of EV charging stations: Level 1 and Level 2 stations are used for residential and personal vehicle applications; Level 3 stations are designed for heavy-duty applications such as public charging stations, charging large vehicles such as buses and for commercial and service fleets.

Level 1 Electric Car Chargers

Level 1 electric car chargers use standard household current at 110/120 volt (110/120V) electrical outlets which generally will not require any changes to your home's electrical system unless you need to add or relocate an outlet to eliminate the use of an extension cord. Using extension cords to charge electric vehicles can pose electrical as well as general safety hazards and should not be considered an option.


Using a basic circuit, Level 1 electric car chargers require less power but will take much longer to charge your vehicle than a Level 2 charger. Generally, a 120V outlet can recharge about 40 miles of electric driving overnight. If your daily driving is ever greater than 40 miles, you should consider a 240V charging station at home.

Level 2 Electric Car Chargers

Level 2 electric car chargers require a 240 volt (240V) electrical outlet (the kind needed for clothes dryers). Because these units add significant load to your electrical service panel, they require special installation by an electrician. In some cases, your electrical service panel may require an upgrade to accommodate the addition of a 240V circuit.


In addition, depending on your location installation of these charging stations often require permits which can only be obtained by a licensed electrician. Actual permit and inspection requirements vary from city to city.


Level 2 electric car chargers can recharge your vehicle for 200 or more miles of electric driving overnight.

Should I Have an Electrician Install My EV Charging Station?

Your new car dealer may offer a home assessment and charging station installation as part of the electric vehicle purchase. You may opt to use this as a negotiating point to reduce the price of the vehicle, and save money by hiring an independent licensed electrician. Because Nisat Electric is an independent contractor, our electric vehicle charger installation fees are much lower than those of dealers who use these fees as a way to recoup money lost in the negotiation price.


Even if this service is not offered by your car dealer Nisat Electric, the top electrical contractor in Frisco, Texas, can help! Your home and vehicle are your most valuable assets, and your personal safety is priceless; do not place them at risk due to unprofessional electric car charger installation. Hire a professional Licensed Master Electrician to ensure that a 240V electrical outlet is properly installed according to National Electrical Code (NEC) to safely keep your electric vehicle powered.

National Electrical Code (NEC)

The National Electrical Code (NEC) is the standard for the safe installation of electrical wiring and equipment in the United States.  The NEC, while having no legally binding regulation as written, is generally adopted by states and municipalities as the standards by which they enforce safe electrical practices within their jurisdiction.


Considered the benchmark for safe electrical installations, the NEC is published by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) every three years.

Electric Car Chargers/EV Charging Stations | Nisat Electric | Frisco, TX

Residential Electric Car Charger and Residential Electric Car Charging Stations

One of the most important decisions that owners of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs or EVs) will need to make is how to charge their vehicle. New systems are being introduced including the EV charging system, which is small enough to mount on the interior of a garage wall. This allows you to recharge your vehicle at your convenience, regardless of weather conditions. Pure battery powered electric vehicles and faster, high voltage charging needs may require that your electrical service panel be upgraded to include the addition of a 240 volt outlet.
