10a. In most cases, home or workplace charging an electric car is the cheapest. You can plug your car right into a standard  outlet (Level 1). You receive 2 miles per 30 minutes. 

The costs of home charging vary, but on average it costs $10 for 240 miles of charge.

For faster charging, you can install a home or work charger that uses the same high-powered 240 voltage as your washer, dryer or stove (Level 2). You receive 16 miles per 30 minutes. 

(Level 3) or DC Fast Charge is the fastest,  up to 500 miles in 30 minutes.
