How do electric car charging stations work?
I’ve been noticing more and more electric vehicle charging stations around my city, but I don’t know anyone personally who drives an electric car. How do electric car charging stations work?
Answer provided by
Much like the electricity at your home, office, or any of the businesses you patronize, the electricity at electric vehicle charging stations comes from being connected to the grid.
Most electric car charging stations work by paying a small fee to connect your car to that electrical grid and charge it. A plug goes into the charging port on the vehicle, the other end hooks up to the outlet at the charging station, and in a few minutes or sometimes hours depending on the charger, the car is fueled up and ready to drive.
All you have to do next is disconnect, pay if you’re at a public charger, and go.
