Electric vehicles come with charging equipment that must be connected to your electrical system. There are two types of charging equipment that are available for residential and commercial use and a third that is strictly for commercial use.

A level 1 charging system can be plugged into most grounded electrical outlets, is usually rated for 15 amperes at 120 volts AC and charges an EV between 10 and 12 hours.
A level 2 charging system is fixed in-place and hard wired, requires a dedicated branch circuit between 30 and 60 amperes depending upon the manufactures specifications and charges an EV between four and six hours.
For commercial use only, a level 3 charging system is fixed in-place and hard wired, requires a dedicated branch circuit with an ampere rating and required voltage per the manufacturer's specifications and charges an EV in minutes rather than hours.
