Where Can I Charge My Electric Car in Inver Grove Heights?

You can charge your electric car at home in your garage or at public electric car charging stations, depending on your requirements for a GMC Hummer EV or a future EV from GMC or Buick.

  1. Domestic Outlet Home Charging (Regular Outlet, Level 1 Charging): This electric car charger will charge your EV in 24 to 48 hours using a standard three-prong outlet. However, it’s not the most efficient way to charge your EV at home because it can take a long time.
  2. Installed Brand-Approved Domestic Charging (Level 2 Charging): This electric car charger must be installed by a Saint Paul-area electrician. It can charge your battery to full capacity overnight, generally in 8 to 10 hours. A Level 2 charging station is the most efficient and least expensive way to charge your EV because of electrical usage overnight.
  3. Public Charging/DC Fast Charging (Level 3 Charging): Public electric car charging stations are typically found near malls, auto dealers, hotels, parking garages, and gas stations. They are the fastest option, delivering an 80 percent charge in as few as 30 minutes. However, they might cost more money compared to your electric bill at home.

Are Public Electric Car Charging Stations Free?

We’ve fully answered, “Where can I charge my electric car around Inver Grove Heights?” Just like gasoline at gas stations, it costs money to recharge at public electric car charging stations. Some of them might be free while others can cost between $7 to $15 to fully charge your vehicle. Most charge by the kilowatt-hour (kWh), just like gas stations charge by the gallon. Electricity is still cheaper than gas prices, and owning an EV is still cheaper overall than a gasoline-powered car because of lower maintenance costs.
