How many EV charging stations, and which types, do I need?

Answer: It all depends on your goals, footprint and the investment you want to make in your facility’s EV infrastructure. But, no matter which way you choose to go, ABM can get you there.

As electric vehicles continue to evolve, ABM can help you lead the charge by right-sizing your EV assets and maximizing their useful service life.

Here’s a quick overview of the three main types of EV charging technology:

  • Level-1 Charging – Uses a standard 110/120-volt receptacle
  • Level-2 Charging – Uses the 208/240-volt SAE J1772 port for faster charging
  • Level-3 Charging (DC Fast Charging) – 480 volt, very fast charging for automobiles equipped with the Fast Charging option

No matter which type you need, ABM teams know how to design efficient, safe and dependable EV installations.

In summary, the best time to start investing in EV charging infrastructure was yesterday. The next best time is right now.
