What Is an Electric Vehicle Charging Station?
If you have an electric car or hybrid, you might be wondering how you can charge your vehicle without relying on public charging stations. Technological advancements have made it easy to charge your EV right at home! This is an efficient way to increase your savings.
Residential charging is convenient and inexpensive, which is why most homeowners with EVs are interested in it. The cost to run your car with a residential system can be nearly equivalent to running your AC and installation can be completed in one day. There are different options when it comes to charging at home including:
- Level 1 EVSE: Uses standard outlet.
- Level 2 EVSE: Special equipment which provides more power.
Depending on your wants and needs, our technicians can let you know what the best option is for you. From upgrading your home outlet and charging station installation to providing energy load estimators and guiding you through available incentive programs, call our Lansing team and get connected today!

Not only are EVs more efficient and cost effective than combustible engine vehicles, but they also bring another level of savings thanks to a number of incentive programs available depending on your energy provider. The Lansing Board of Water & Light’s (BWL) provides rebates to help its customers offset the costs associated with the installation of home charging stations and Consumers Energy offers customers a $500 rebate for new installations.
In addition, all-electric and plug-in hybrid cars purchased new in or after 2010 may be eligible for a federal income tax credit of up to $7,500.
