If you are a new electric vehicle (EV) owner, congratulations on making the switch to a more eco-friendly and sustainable mode of transportation!

1. Know Your EV's Range

The range of your EV refers to how far you can travel on a single charge. Knowing your vehicle's range is crucial for planning your trips and your charging needs. You can find this information in your EV's manual or by consulting the manufacturer's website.

2. Locate Charging Stations

Before you head out on any long trips, make sure you know where charging stations are located. You can use apps like Google Maps, and PlugShare to find the nearest charging stations near you. Familiarize yourself with the different charging networks that are available, and sign up for accounts with the networks that you will be using the most.

3. Plan Your Route

Once you know your EV's range and where charging stations are located, plan your route accordingly. Try to hit charging stations on your way to your destination, so you don't have to extend your trip or end up with a low battery. Also, consider the charging speed of each station so you can prioritize which ones to stop at.

4. Plan Your Charging

When planning your charging, keep in mind that different types of charging stations offer different levels of charging speed. Level 1 charging is the slowest and can take up to 12 hours to fully charge your battery, while level 3 fast charging can get you to 80% battery in just 30 minutes.

Make sure that you have the right type of charger for your vehicle and your charging needs. 

For example, if you plan to charge at home, you may want to install a Level 2 charger. It's best to do it overnight when rates are lower. You can easily set up a charging schedule with your EV's charging system(Learn about Grasen Charging Station Management Software), so you'll wake up to a full battery each morning. 

5. Take Care of Your Battery

Regularly check the health of your vehicle's battery, and take steps to maintain its health and extend its life. This may include regular battery maintenance, avoiding extreme temperatures, and avoiding deep discharge cycles.

Overall, planning your charging is essential for any new EV owner. By knowing your range, locating charging stations, planning your route and charging, and maintaining your battery properly, you'll always have the power you need to get where you're going. Happy driving!
