Charging Electric Vehicles

Charging electric vehicles is easy and convenient.   Most electric cars are charged at home while their driver is sleeping or are charged in a parking lot while the driver is at work.  Public charging connections are available throughout the world in public parking areas, at businesses, hotels, state and national parks, and Tesla Supercharging Stations.  More and more employers are offering charging connections in their employee parking lots.   Electric outlets are ubiquitous and can often be used when EV charging stations are not available.

Wireless Charging.  Charging systems are available for some EVs that allow wireless charging.  The driver simply parks the specially equipped EV over a small charging pad in the parking space and the car is charged without the use of a cable.  Go to for more information.

Charging Options.   There are three primary means of charging electric vehicles ranging from the common household outlet to high power fast charging stations.    Standard household outlets provide about 4 to 5 miles of driving distance for each hour the car is plugged in.   240 volt charging stations will provide up to 50 miles of driving distance per hour depending on the capacity of the charging station and the capacity of the charger on board the car.    Fast charge stations provide up to 150 miles of driving distance in approximately 30 minutes.

Get Paid for Charging Your Electric Car.   EV drivers can get paid for charging just by signing up for a program that controls when their car is charged and also controls the amount of electrical current used for charging the car.

The program is designed to ensure that the car is fully charged by the time the driver specifies and allows the driver to choose the time of day the car is charging to take advantage of Time Of Use electricity rates.   Charging may be controlled to maximize the use of zero emission electricity generation on the grid.
