Fees & Where to Charge Your EV

Electric Vehicle Icon


Types of EV charging stations:

Level 2 charging uses a dedicated 208V or 240V circuit (same as a clothes dryer) and requires a specialized station. Level 2 chargers can fully recharge a vehicle in 4 to 6 hours and are commonly used in homes, workplaces and public charging locations.

Direct current (DC) fast charging uses a 480V circuit and requires a specialized station and utility connection. DC fast chargers can recharge a vehicle in approximately 30 minutes and are well-suited for public charging locations close to amenities or transit corridors.
