Emporia CEO, Shawn McLaughlin, Details the Benefits of Level 2 EV Charger in Men's Journal Pursuits: Style

Here at Emporia, we talk a lot of Level 2 EV Charging for homeowners. But have you wondered why you should consider it over a basic, Level 1 EV Charger or just relying on public charging infastructure?

You’re in luck, because our expert and CEO, Shawn McLaughlin, detailed the “Reasons Why You Should Upgrade to a Level 2 Charger” with Emily Fazio in Men’s Journal Pursuits: Style!

You’ll learn about 4 key areas that pertain to Level 2 EV Charging:

1. General convenience factors:

Having a Level 2 charger at home means you don’t need to rely on public charging stations. You can charge your EV at your convenience, ensuring that your vehicle is always ready to go when you are.

2. Improved speed of charging:

Level 2 chargers can significantly reduce the charging time compared to standard Level 1 chargers. They can provide about 10 to 60 miles of range per hour of charging, depending on the vehicle and charger specifications, allowing you to charge your EV overnight or during short periods.

3. Better energy efficiency

Using a smart Level 2 charger at home allows you to automate charging times to avoid peak demand periods and also allows you to make use of renewable energy sources if you have solar panels or other green energy solutions. This can further reduce your carbon footprint compared to relying on fossil fuels or grid power alone.

4. Costs savings from rebates, incentives, and tax credits

As of December 2023, the US government offers an alternative fuel tax credit. This supplies a 30% discount on the cost of the charger and its installation up to $1,000 (consult your tax professional for more information on Federal Tax Credits). Federal tax credit form
