Before retiring, I had free charging at work. This was convenient and saved me money. Because most of my charging was done at work, I only needed level 1 charging at home. Last year, after retiring, I installed a level 2 charger in my garage, and that’s where I do most of my charging now. There are public chargers close to my house that I have used, but I tend to only use public chargers during road trips. Unless I’m going on a long trip, I tend to only charge my EV up to 80%, and I set it up so it is done charging by 7AM.
