Electric Vehicle Charging Options
Level 1 EVSE: This vehicle charging device is included when you purchase a PEV from Chevrolet (a Volt). It plugs into a standard 120 V wall socket in your home or other location and provides your electric car with a “trickle” charge.
Level 2 EVSE (Residential): These charging stations are hard-wired into your home and charge an electric vehicle faster than the Level 1 charger. Learn more about ClipperCreek Level 2 residential charging stations here.
Level 2 EVSE (Commercial): The commercial versions of Level 2 vehicle charging stations offer co-branding options as well as heavy-duty construction, built for consumers to use in a public environment. Options include access control management keypads and card readers to accept payments.
