There are a few businesses that do. The idea being it will attract customers eventually. But with a 70 mile range on even the less expensive OEM EV's it is not often needed to charge anywhere except for at home.I wanted to know, In the USA, do businesses support the EV community by installing EV charging points for their customers?
Or is it upto the community to approach businesses.
The most popular Level 2 charge points are 30 amps 240 volt which can do 25 miles per hour recharge if the charger in the car can handle it (7200 watts). These could be installed as up to 72 amps at 240 volts but there are no cars that have chargers that can accept that much (17.3 kw) except for Tesla which can be ordered with a second 10kw charger for 20kw. Just because the EVSE can supply it does not mean the vehicle can use it. I have never seen a Level 2 15 amp EVSE. I charger from 120vac at 12 amps which is a normal wall outlet in my garage. I have never needed public charging. I would use the Tesla Supercharge network for taking road trips if Tesla would let me.Also how popular are Level 2 15 Amp sockets in America?
Can any businesses install it?
