Trinidad and Tobago is an island nation in the southeast Caribbean. It is made up of several smaller islands in addition to the two main islands, Trinidad and Tobago.
Trinidad and Tobago, which together with Guyana make up the two southernmost links in the Caribbean chain, are located near South America, northeast of Venezuela.
A considerably smaller island, Tobago, is located 20 miles (30 km) northeast of Trinidad and has a surface area of of around 115 square miles (300 square km).
Tobago is roughly 30 miles (50 km) long and more than 10 miles (16 km) across at its widest point, running diagonally from the southwest to the northeast.
An electric vehicle is easily charged by just plugging it into a charger that is attached to an electrical outlet. But not all EV charging stations—also referred to as EVSE, or electric vehicle supply equipment—are made equal.
Some only need to be plugged into a regular wall socket to be installed, while others need a custom setup. The kind of charger you use will affect how long it takes to charge your car.
Level 1 chargers can be inserted into a typical outlet and have a 120-volt (V) AC plug. Level 1 chargers don’t require the installation of any extra hardware, in contrast to other chargers.
These chargers are most frequently used at home and typically give two to five miles of range per hour of charging.
Both home and commercial charging stations use Level 2 chargers. Unlike Level 1 chargers, they require a 240 V (for residential usage) or 208 V (for commercial use) plug, and they cannot be plugged into a regular wall socket.
A qualified electrician should also install them. It is also possible to install level 2 home EV chargers that are connected to a solar power system.
In just 20 minutes, a DC Fast Charger, often referred to as a Level 3, Combined Charging System (CCS), or CHAdeMO charging station, may extend the range of your electric vehicle’s battery by 60 to 80 miles.
They need extremely specialised, powerful equipment to install and maintain, and are normally only utilised in commercial and industrial applications. So you may use them for long-distance travel and road excursions, you can locate them on key roadways.
The Trinidad and Tobago EV Charger Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
As energy prices surge, the cost of quickly charging an electric automobile has increased significantly. According to the motoring organisation, charging an electric vehicle is still less expensive than buying gas or diesel.
An average electric vehicle’s charge time is just under eight hours. With the installation of an electric vehicle charging station at the University of the West Indies, drivers no longer have an excuse for not owning an eco-friendly vehicle.
The station was successfully installed and inspected by the GEI, making it the first Level Two, 230-volt station in Trinidad and Tobago.
