Electric Vehicle Charging
All electric vehicles (EVs) have on-board batteries used to store the electricity needed to power the vehicle. Battery EVs, plug-in hybrid EVs and extended range EVs all require plugging into an external power service for their "electrical" propulsion.
EV charging typically occurs on a daily basis. Charging stations, sometimes referred to as electric vehicle supply equipment, are safety devices that manage the flow of electricity for recharging the batteries in these vehicles.
