Electric Car Charging Station

by | Apr 2, 2021

According to sites like the Alliance of Auto Manufacturers, the electric car market share in the US is pretty low overall. However, electric cars grow in popularity, year after year.  In Louisville, Laswell Electric is here to get your electric car charging station installed.  We can install them in your home garage or in the parking lot at your place of business.

In electric cars onboard rechargeable batteries store energy to power one or more electric motors. These batteries are charged using electricity from the grid and energy recaptured during braking, known as regenerative braking. Vehicles that run only on electricity produce no tailpipe emissions, but there are upstream emissions associated with the production of electricity so they are a great option for people who are concerned with the environment.  Powering PEVs with electricity is currently cost effective compared to using gasoline, but PEVs typically cost more to purchase. However, initial vehicle costs can be offset by energy cost savings, a federal tax credit, and state incentives.

Many PEV owners choose to do the majority of their charging at home and some businesses and office complexes offer access to workplace charging. In many cities, electric car drivers also have access to public charging stations in a variety of places, such as shopping centers, hotels, public parking garages and lots. Charging infrastructure is rapidly expanding, providing drivers with the convenience, range, and confidence to meet their transportation needs.
