Charging Your EV

Last updated 5/3/2019

In many ways, driving an electric car feels the same as driving a gas-powered one. However, if your car is powered by electricity, you can't just pull up to the gas station and refuel – you have to charge it. EnergySage has the rundown on charging your electric vehicle. 

FAQ: Does my electric car need a special charging station?

Not necessarily. There are three types of charging stations for electric cars, and the most basic plugs into a standard wall outlet. However, if you want to charge your car more quickly, you can also have an electrician install a charging station at your home.
