Types of EV Charging Stations

CLF Services are experts in installing electric vehicle (EV) charging stations for domestic or commercial usage. 

There are three types of EV charging station which CLF Services are able to install at your premises: 

Level 1

  • This system uses an existing power point (10 – 15 Amp Single Phase) in combination with a specialised cable that is usually supplied with the vehicle.
  • This is typically used in standalone domestic dwellings
  • This system will add between 10-20km of driving range per hour plugged in
  • This system will top up daily usage but will not fully recharge a typical pure electric vehicle overnight. 

Level 2

  • This system harnesses a dedicated AC EV charger which operates up to 7kW (32 Amp, single phase). 
  • We typically install these systems in homes, apartment precincts, workplaces, shopping centres, motels and hotels. 
  • This system will add up to 40km of range per hour plugged in. 
  • In most instances this system will top up average daily vehicle use in an hour, and can deliver a full charge overnight. 

Level 3

  • A level 3 system involves a dedicated DC EV charger delivering power levels from 25kW to 350kW (40 – 500 Amp, three phase). 
  • These high powered systems are typically used in commercial premises and road side locations in order to provide rapid and more efficient recharging than Level 1 and 2 can achieve. 
  • These systems can add up to 150km of range per hour plugged in, at the lower end. 
  • At the top end these systems can recharge certain electric vehicles in 10 to 15 minutes.
