EV Chargers

Home Electric Vehicle Charging

Electric vehicles are becoming more affordable and more popular. Adding an EV charger to your home can allow you to charge your car more efficiently by charging faster or customizing charging times to save money. Home EV chargers are especially effective and valuable when paired with solar – charging your vehicle with energy generated by your system is both more economical and more environmentally friendly.

EV Charging
Levels

Not all EV chargers are created equal. The industry classifies chargers into three levels, based on how fast they can deliver power to a vehicle plugged into them.

Level 1

Level 1 charging is simply plugging your vehicle into an ordinary 120v household electrical outlet. You can charge your EV this way, but extremely slowly – plugging in overnight will only yield enough power for 40-50 miles of driving range at best.

Level 2

Zenernet Recommended

Level 2 chargers are the most common category, and the majority of chargers we sell are categorized as L2. An L2 charger can yield between 12 and 80 miles of range per hour of charging depending on the specific type of vehicle. L2 generally delivers the best value and convenience for daily use.

Level 3

Level 3 chargers can fill up an EV’s “tank” in as little as an hours. However, this level of power comes with a significant price tag. We offer L3 chargers but typically only recommend them for commercial-scale projects.

What to Look For
In An EV Charger

Power Delivery

Make sure the charger has enough amperage to charge your vehicle as rapidly as it will accept.

Warranty

Reputable chargers should have at least a 3-year warranty and safety certifications from groups like UL and ETL.

Smart Features

The best EV chargers come with apps that allow you to do things like schedule charging, monitor charging, and set up reminders to plug in.

EC Charger Incentives

Federal Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC)

The biggest active solar panel incentive in the United States, the ITC allows homeowners to claim a tax credit of 26% of the cost of any new solar installation project, and if you install an EV charger as part of the solar install you can claim the credit on the cost of the charger as well.

State & Local Incentives

Depending on where you live and who your utility provider is, there may be rebates and incentives available to homeowners who install an EV charger on their property. A Zenernet energy consultant can help you figure out what incentives are available to you.
