As the market for EVs begin to blossom, EV drivers will need a reliable way to charge their vehicles at and away from home.
Options and basic charging circuit requirements
Charging PHEVs and EVs requires plugging into Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE).
SERVICE UPGRADE INFORMATION
Installing a separate 220/240V circuit for your home charging unit
ELECTRIC RATE OPTIONS
APU offers EV homeowners two rate schedules: Domestic Service (DS) and Domestic Time-of-Use (TOU). Although the Utilities allows for the installation of more than one electric meter in the home, it does not allow for more than one electric rate.
LOAD MANAGEMENT TECHNIQUES
It is highly recommended that owners charge their electric vehicles during off peak hours so as not to overload the electric grid.
