Charging Your EV. Powering Your Life.

For drivers going electric, charging takes the place of traditional gas station fill-ups. But the impact of EV adoption goes far beyond the way you fuel your vehicle. With the advent of bidirectional charging, your EV can now be used to power your home—and the possibilities for additional applications are practically limitless.

ABCs of EV Charging

There are three types of electric vehicle chargers: Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3—also known as Direct Current Fast Charging (DCFC).

Level 1 Charging

Typically included with your EV purchase, these home chargers plug into a standard 120-volt electrical outlet but only provide 3-5 miles of charging per hour.

Level 2 Charging

Level 2 chargers are found in both residential and commercial settings. They’re popular for home charging since they can fully replenish your EV battery while you sleep.

Battery Energy Storage & Solar Panels

Once your home charger is up and running, consider adding a battery energy storage system and rooftop solar panels. You can charge your battery system from the public grid, your solar panels—and even your EV, if it’s equipped with bidirectional charging.

Battery Energy Storage

Store power to use during peak hours when utility rates are higher—or if the grid goes down.

Solar Panels

Generate clean power that you can use yourself or sell back to the grid.
