As more and more Reno residents begin to drive electric vehicles, more and more homes and businesses find themselves in need of professional charging equipment. Professional EV chargers can charge your vehicle faster, keep it charged longer, and protect your vehicle from damage. Plus, you won’t have to pay for your charge like you might have to at a public charging station. Whether you want to fuel your own electric vehicle, support your employees’ decision to drive green, or give customers somewhere to recharge while they shop or dine, KD Electric can provide you with the right charging solutions to suit your needs
If you need a designated space or specialized equipment to charge your electric vehicles, call our Reno office at (775) 377-7552 today!
What Kinds of EV Chargers Are There?
- Level 1 Chargers – The lowest level of EV charging, these chargers conduct 120 volts of electricity and can be used with common household outlets. Because of their low voltage, they are considered the slowest way to charge a vehicle.
- Level 2 Chargers – The most common choice for casual EV drivers, these chargers can conduct 208 to 240 volts of electricity and can charge a vehicle nearly 10 times faster than a Level 1 charger, making it easy to plug your vehicle in at night and have a full charge in the morning. However, they may require a specialized outlet or panel expansion.
- Level 3 Chargers – Conducting between 400 and 900 volts of electricity, these chargers are typically used commercially for public charging systems, as they can deliver a full charge in just a couple of hours. To accommodate this large amount of power, Level 3 chargers use DC electricity as opposed to the AC electricity used by Level 1 and Level 2 chargers, which means that installing one will almost certainly require the installation of specialized outlets and the support of a high-voltage power supply.
- Level 4 Chargers – The rarest of the charger types, Level 4 chargers can only be installed by a few highly qualified companies, KD Electric among them. Level 4 chargers have an even higher voltage than Level 3 chargers and are used for large commercial and municipal projects like parking garages and parking lots. They are the newest innovation in EV charging technology.

“Professional & Responsive! We needed a new electrical sub and we reached out to several, with little to no response. KD Electric got back to us the same day and was very accommodating with our project needs. Very friendly and kind as well.” - Sterling Builders LLC
