Electric Vehicles

Sunlight Solar Energy is authorized to install some of the best in-home EV chargers in the industry. If you drive an electric vehicle, we can help you find a charging station that suits your energy needs.

Level 1 Chargers:

The majority of EV charging occurs at home. If you are using an outlet that was built into your home to charge your car, you are likely using a Level 1 charger or a 120-volt outlet. Level 1 outlets offer the slowest charge times for electric vehicles (approximate 4.5 miles of range per hour of charging). For example, if you drive a Nissan Leaf with a capacity of approximately 80 miles of real life driving on a full charge, the battery for that vehicle will require 17.7 hours to fully charge via a Level 1 outlet. Upgrading to a 240-volt outlet can almost triple the miles of range you get per hour of charging time. See the table for a comparison of fully-electric vs. hybrid vehicles and levels of charging.
