ST VINCENT FIRST ELECTRIC CAR AND CHARGING STATION

FIRST PUBLISH ON WEFM ST VINCENT
The launch of this country’s first Electric Vehicle and Charging Station is being seen as a major step forward in the thrust to achieve energy efficiency here.
The project was undertaken by the Energy Unit in the Prime Minister’s Office, with funding from the United Nations Development programme, UNDP
Speaking at the launch, UNDP Project coordinator Dr. Alston Stoddard pointed out that although oil prices have reduced significantly in recent years, steps must be taken to prepare for the possibility that they may begin to rise again in the future.
Electric cars all come with a 120-volt charging cable that can charge the battery from a household socket if there are no other options.
But sooner or later, most battery-electric car owners will want a 240-volt Level 2 charging station that can recharge the car as much as four times faster.
Owners of plug-in hybrids with ranges below 30 miles may find the standard charging cable fine, but as plug-in ranges rise, they too may decide a charging station will increase their all-electric driving.
While 240-volt charging stations aren’t complicated, there are many different options on the market.
