Lantern works with the top EV charging manufactures, and our in-house electrical experts are available to help you choose the best option for your needs.
EV Charging Equipment We Install
Home EV Charging Stations
There are two residential charger options: Level 1 and Level 2.
Level 1 chargers work off 110-volt 20-amp outlets, which are standard in all homes. While no additional costs are typically required, these provide slower charging, adding about 4 miles of range per hour.
Level 2 chargers operate off 240-volt and (usually) 40-amp circuits, so they must be installed by a professional. They are more efficient than Level 1 chargers, adding about 25 miles of range per hour.
What to Consider When Choosing a Home EV Charger
Do you have space and capacity in your existing electrical system? Lantern will assess your electrical panel and make any upgrades needed to accommodate your charging station.
How fast do you need to be able to charge your car? For faster charging needs, we can install a charger that adds up to 25 to 37 miles of range per hour.
Where will your charger be located? If your charging station will be in your garage or outside, the Lantern team can trench and install a pedestal charger, if needed.
Are you concerned about cord length & cord management? We’ll help you choose from cable cradles and wall-mount connection holsters to high-end auto coil systems that never touch the ground.
Are you interested in a wifi-enabled charging station? A smart EV charger allows you to set your charging schedule, get reminders and track charging costs—all from an app.
What’s your budget? If you’re working on a tight budget, we can help prioritize your EV charging station needs.
EV Charging Stations for Retail Businesses, Office Buildings, & Multi-Family Buildings
To provide fast charging that satisfies commercial needs, Lantern installs Level 2 and Level 3 DC charging stations from the industry’s top manufacturers.
Why Install a Commercial EV Charger?
As more car buyers opt for electric vehicles, your business can benefit by giving them a place to plug in!
For businesses, an EV charger puts you on the map among those in-the-know, and helps to keep your clientele for a longer period.
For office buildings, EV chargers can help to attract and maintain top talent, while showcasing your company’s green initiatives and cutting-edge efficiency.
For multi-family buildings, EV charging stations help to attract and retain eco-conscious residents.
In addition to these benefits, there may also be state and local incentives for installing an EV charging station.
