Electric Vehicle Charging Stations
Installing an electric vehicle charging station at your Islip home makes life more convenient.

You no longer have to worry about finding the next public charging station.

How Do Home EV Charging Stations Work?
There are two primary charging speeds for electric vehicles:
- Level 1—charges using a standard 120v outlet
- Level 2—charges using 240v outlet
According to the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), plugging an all-electric vehicle into a standard 120v outlet for Level 1 charging could take 40-50 hours to charge from empty. A plug-in hybrid electric vehicle could take 5-6 hours to charge from empty.
But using Level 2 charging for all-electric vehicles takes about 4-10 hours to charge from empty and 1-2 hours for plug-in hybrid electric vehicles.
HomeOps can add a new outlet to your garage to accommodate a 240v outlet. Call us today for free consultation.
Advantages of a Home Charging Station
Installing a charging station at home offers benefits you will not get at a public station. Here are three reasons to install an electric vehicle charging port at your home:
You can plug in at night and be ready to roll by morning, a convenience you never had with a gasoline-powered vehicle. You are in control of your own charging station.
- Saving Money
You know the electricity rates for your home. You can charge your vehicle during off-peak hours when electricity rates are at their lowest. Cost and charging plans can vary from public station to station. Prices may differ depending on the time of day.
- Home Value
According to Zillow, homes with electrical vehicle chargers sell up to 10 days faster than homes without chargers. Homes with eco-friendly features, like solar panels, EV chargers, smart thermostats, and other home automation features, can make your property more appealing to buyers.
Imagine how a home charging station might affect the property value and resale price of your Islip home.
EV Home Charging Tax Credits
You can earn a tax credit of up to $1,000 for installing a charging station at your home. In the first quarter of 2023, public charging ports accounted for about 88 percent of all charging ports, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation. Installing an EV charging station at your home separates you from the pack.
