Level of EVSE Charging
   There are three levels of EV charging: Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3. The higher the level of charging, more power is delivered to the vehicle.
   Level 1 chargers plug directly into a standard 120 volt AC outlet supplying an average power output of 1.3 kW to 2.4 kW. This power output is equivalent to 3-5 miles of EV range per hour. An overnight charge will add 30-50 miles of range.
   Level 2 charging requires a dedicated 240 V circuit and output ranges from 3 kW to 19 kW of AC power. This power output translates to 18-28 miles of range per hour. An average EV can be fully charged in 8 hours or less on Level 2 charging.
   Level 3 charging has a maximum output of 350 kW. Level 3 uses direct current (DC) and can recharge an EV at a rate of 3 to 20 miles of range per minute. Level 3 charging is designed to fill an EV battery to 80% in 20-40 minutes, and 100% in 60-90 minutes.
