Answer provided by
If you’re thinking about installing a home charging station for your electric vehicle, you don’t need to be worried about overloading your home electric system. Most plug-in electric and hybrid vehicles can only accept a maximum of 16 to 32 amps while charging on a Level 2 charging station.
Installing a Level 2 charging station is a great way to charge your car at home, and cuts down charging time for most cars to just a few hours. Any standard 16-amp charging port will get the job done, but it can take upwards of 15 hours to get a full charge on an electric car.
