Level III, or DC Fast Charging – Level III, sometimes referred to as DC Fast Charging, ranges from 200 to 600 VDC and can recharge an electric vehicle in as little as 30 minutes. This is a fantastic solution for charging on the go. However, the major setback for Level III EV charging is that there is not one standard plug for all EVs. In the US, there are two competing standards, CHAdeMO and SAE. Additionally, Level III charging port is not offered on any plug-in EV, like the Chevy Volt or Ford Fusion. In addition, owning and managing a Level III station is incredibly expensive, sometimes upwards of $50,000 or more. Your building also has to be well equipped to handle such an electric load capacity. You will typically find Level III or DC Fast Charging stations purchased by your state government along interstate highways.
