Three Charger Options for Vermonters

Charge Vermont is here to help you get the right type of charging equipment for your location.

There are three types of charging equipment to choose from: Level-1, Level-2, and DC Fast Chargers.

Depending on where the charger will be located and who’s going to be using it will determine the right charger for you. Charge Vermont and your installer can also help.

Level-1 Chargers (120V)

Level-1 Chargers provide charging through a 120-volt AC plug. Almost all electric vehicles come with a portable Level-1 cord set, so additional equipment isn’t typically required.
