Electric car drivers smile each time they drive past a gas station, knowing that they never need to wait in those long lines or pay the ever-rising price of gas again. In addition, the reduction in emissions benefits the entire community.

At Comeaux Electric, we recommend that you refer to your EV owner’s manual or manufacturer’s website to determine the perfect charger for your electric vehicle. In almost every case, a Level 1 charger is included in the purchase of your EV. However, it is also common for new EV owners to upgrade to a Level 2 charger. Your daily driving needs will most likely dictate which charger will better meet your needs.
A Level 1 charger uses a standard 110-volt outlet and can add about 4 to 6 miles of range to the EV per four of charging. However, it is also vital to understand that the charger should only be plugged into a dedicated 110-volt outlet to reduce the potential of damage from an electrical surge or spike. The Level 2 charge requires a dedicated 240-volt outlet, much like the one used for a clothes dryer. It can increase your EV range by 20 to 30 miles per hour of charging.
The licensed electricians at Comeaux Electric have years of experience installing dedicated outlets and EV home charging units in the Lafayette area. Call 337-252-2901 for a free price quote for a new charger installation or for EV charger repair in Lafayette.
