Power up on the cheap, while you sleep.

A whopping 80% of EV charging happens at home.* It’s convenient and cost-effective thanks to TVA’s low electricity rates. All EVs come with a Level 1 charging cable that you can plug into an ordinary power outlet. Most EV owners recommend having a professional install a dedicated Level 2 charger.

Know your EV charging levels.

Just like you choose your octane at the gas pump, you choose your juice at the plug! There are three ways to charge your EV: Level 1 (120-volt), Level 2 (240-volt) and DC fast charging.

Level 1: These chargers plug into a regular 120-volt home outlet, just like the one you use to charge your phone or power your TV.

Level 2: Professionally installed 240-volt chargers can fully charge an empty battery-only EV (BEV) at home or on the road in 4-10 hours.

Fast Charging: Direct current (DC) public chargers are intended for quick stops on long road trips and can fill up an empty battery in 20-60 minutes.
