Denver Electric and Solar: Benefits of Home EV Charging

The rise in electric vehicle (EV) popularity continues to grow across America. Especially as gas prices increase, more and more automobile owners are turning toward electric for their next purchase. This not only helps the current market but it also makes availability of charging stations a premium. Public options continue to pop up across the country but the ease and availability of home charging stations is even more beneficial.

Future electric cars and trucks are to be constructed from many of the most popular vehicle brands today. These options are expected to not only fuel the increase in the popularity of electric vehicles but also their availability. As numbers increase, having options for owners to charge their cars and trucks will become a priority but ultimately - there’s no place like home.

The convenience of being able to charge your vehicle at home is simply unmatched. Not only are owners available to plug-in on their own schedule - obviously overnight is a popular option - but they can do so any time they are home instead of on the road. In addition, there is never any wait time associated with at-home charging as you are always first in line. Forget about having to wait for a station and begin to enjoy the convenience of charging at home.

In addition, the cost of charging up at home can be considerably less than that on the road. While there may be some current availability of “free” charging stations, the fact you will likely have to pay is more prevalent today. Electing to raise your current power bill a minimal amount for the ample return is far often a better choice for EV owners.


Another key factor of home charging is the safety aspect. The same dangers which come with parking your automobile in public - theft, vandalism, damage, etc. - are also prevalent when charging but these potential issues are somewhat regulated when plugged in at home.


The charging times may vary when choosing to amp up at home versus on the road but this can also be beneficial to the EV’s battery. Public availability tends to come with somewhat faster charging times but this also increases the amount of energy being transitioned to a battery, potentially causing an issue. At home, a slower and steadier method with decreased amounts of electricity can extend a car or truck’s battery life considerably.


Having an EV charging station within your home can also increase property value. As the future leans more toward these types of vehicles, availability becomes increasingly more prevalent so early access is key and can raise the bottom line of your residence should it ever need to be placed on the real estate market.
