Home charging with a Volt
Plugging an electric car into a home socket draws about as much power as an entire house. That's why people expect that consumers will want to take advantage of off-peak rates, which GE and other chargers can do. Scheduling charging also reduces stress on the grid, during peak times which run into the early evening. Typically, these chargers will operate at higher voltage to speed up charge time.
