The growth of electric vehicles (EVs) in the U.S. has been rapid. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Electric car sales have increased from 0.2 percent in 2011 to 4.6 percent in 2021, that’s an increase of 2400%! So, even if you don’t have one it’s likely you know someone who does. With this rise in EVs there is an increased demand for charging stations. Let us introduce you to Leviton and their smart EV charging stations. Leviton has been a leading manufacturer of electrical products for decades. Let’s outline some of the benefits of a Leviton charging station.
Faster EV charging
Leviton offers Level 2 charging stations that can charge an EV faster than Level 1 stations. These charging stations can charge your EV up to 9 times faster than a standard changing station, which can take up to 20 hours to fully charge a vehicle
Leviton smart charging stations are compatible with most electric car models and can charge both plug-in hybrids and all-electric vehicles. This means that you can use a Leviton charging station regardless of the make and model including Teslas.
Smart EV charging features
Leviton’s charging stations come with smart charging features that allow you to monitor and control your charging sessions remotely. With the Leviton app, you can track your charging history, set charging schedules, and receive alerts when your are fully charged. The stations also have RFID and wifi controls to restrict who has access to the stations.
The Leviton charging stations are energy-efficient and can help you save money on your energy bills. They are designed to minimize energy waste and can adjust their charging rate based on the battery level of your electric vehicle.
