What are my charging options? A. Level 1 Charging- You have a few different options for charging your vehicle depending on the type of electric vehicle you have. Anyone has the option to charge their vehicle on a household 110 Volt outlet. All EVs come with an extension cord and an adapter so that you can simply plug your vehicle in to the wall. This option, known as "trickle charging," is very slow and may take up to 15 hours to charge your vehicle. B. Level 2 Charging- Most people will choose to install a level 2 charger, which will charge the vehicles much faster than the 110 Volt. These chargers come at 240 Volts and range in ampage. Belmont Light is offering a $250 rebate to customers who have installed a program-approved level 2 charger. 1. If you have a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV), such as the Chevy Volt, Ford CMax, Ford Fusion, Prius Prime, etc., you can leverage your vehicle's full charging capacity with a 240 Volt 16 AMP. The total time it takes to charge will vehicle will range depending on the size of the vehicle's battery, but you can expect it to charge at a rate of about 12 miles per hour.
BDE will help you find a certified electrician to connect the charger to your electrical panel and complete the installation.
Coming soon.. If you do not have space at your house to install the level 2 charger, you can receive a freeeMotorWerks JuicePlug that will connect your regular 120-volt outlet charging to your wireless network so you can receive the annual charging incentive provided by Belmont Light.
