Plug-In Electric Vehicles: A Popular EV Option
As wind and solar electric generation continue to play a greater and greater role in municipal electrical generation, so has the role of electric and hybrid vehicles. Specifically, a class of electrical vehicles called Plug-in Electric Vehicles (PEVs) has seen quite a bit of growth in terms of popularity. The most common types of PEVs we see today are the 100% electric Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs), and a variety of Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs). BEVs get their power by plugging into a charging station, whereas HEVs produce their own electricity internally as well get power in other ways. Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs) are a unique option we sometimes see, and can plug into EV charging stations, use gasoline, and generate electricity on their own like HEVs.
While that’s a lot of information, just consider it a bit of a brush-up in case you already own an EV, or a brief overview if you’re investigating your options. Most often, we install EV charging stations in Arvada to accommodate BEVs and PHEVs.
Level 2 EV Charging Stations For Fast-Charge Performance
Most electric and hybrid vehicles come standard with Level 1 chargers. These are fine, but in some cases may leave a bit to be desired in terms of charging speed. Many of our customers find that upgrading to a Level 2 charging station can really improve your EV experience. For most EVs, a full charge can be accomplished overnight or even during a normal day in your home. That’s up to 4-5 faster than a Level 1 charger, for reference.
A Level 2 home EV charging station requires a dedicated, 240 volt electrical circuit. These products also need to be installed with a properly sized electrical breaker and the right gauge of wire. As such, a Level 2 EV charger installation is best left to a professional, experienced electrician. In Arvada, Save Home Heat Company is a trusted name in EV charger installation. We will install your charging station correctly, following all manufacturer requirements as well as local and national electrical code (NEC).

While there are more and more public EV charging stations available, access is still often limited, so having a home electric vehicle charging station can be the perfect addition for both plug-in hybrids as well as Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs).
