Charging

2017-Ford-Fusion-Energi-Detail-ShotPlug-in electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids need to connect to a source of electricity to recharge their batteries. This can be done through a standard 120-volt outlet (often referred to as “Level 1”) or accomplished more quickly using specially designed equipment, technically known as Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE), which are available at 240-volt (Level 2), 480-volt (often referred to as “Fast Chargers”) or higher.

The vast majority of electric vehicle recharging currently occurs at home. However, there is a growing network of public and workplace charging locations that provide additional options for drivers. Public recharging locations can provide a convenient way to expand the range a driver may travel on battery power and can attract new customers to a business.
