Before bringing home a plug-in electric vehicle (PEV), review the types of vehicles available to find one that best fits your lifestyle. Federal and state incentives can help you fit a new vehicle into your budget. Then, consider your charging options:

Determining A Charge Level

The average PEV needs to recharge daily. Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) is the external unit commonly called a charging station. EVSEs are what safely connect your vehicle to a home or business electrical service.

Where Can Electric Vehicles Be Charged?

All PEV’s and Level 1 and 2 charging stations come with a standard adaptor for charging. SAE J1772 is the North American standard for electrical connectors. It includes several levels of shock protection. This ensures safe charging even in wet conditions.
