Here at EVC, we know that the key to having a great EV driving experience is an easy transition and reliable charging options. If you’re in the market for an EV, there is a wide variety of makes and models to choose from, ensuring that you get the right EV to suit your needs. In the same way, there are also different places to charge and different methods of charge. EV charging stations installation is EVC’s game.
Whenever your EV is at home in your strata or apartment development, you can charge your vehicle from your own EV charging station installed in your complex’s garage. There are now various makes and models of at-home charging systems available on the market. EVC can help you choose the one that’s right for your owners corporation and your EV.
Various options for commercial charging infrastructure are rolling out across Australia. Host sites include shopping centres, hospitals, parks, stadiums, and even the beach carpark. You can publicly access EV DC charging stations. Using the PlugShare app (downloadable in your app store), you can see the wide network of commercial charging stations available in your area.
At EVC, we are also working with large organisations to help add to the established network of commercial DC charging stations to assist customers and provide even more access to vehicle charging facilities.
AC EV chargers offer slower capability charging options. This is because EV’s run on stored DC energy rather than AC direct.
When you connected an EV to an AC charger, the energy must go through a conversion within the EV before transferring to the battery storage. This results in slower output and conversion rate and less input charge. AC charging stations usually come in 7kW systems upwards to 22kW. These stations usually link to in-home personal charging systems or at high density public hubs including at shopping centres or at workplaces. Due to their slower charge speed, these stations can be free to use. Once you connect, your EV will generally charge at a rate of about 30-40 km per hour of charge.
As EVs use DC energy within their battery storage systems, charging using a DC charging station is significantly faster than using an AC counterpart.
This is because the output from the station already converts within the station itself and directly inputs DC energy straight into the EV. Also known as fast charge stations, DC charging stations are most common in larger cities and on major region tourism routes. Depending on the available capacity of your EV, connecting to a DC charger can add range of 100 km for every charging hour. Higher kilowatt systems can fully charge an EV to 100% capacity in as little as 45 minutes.
