How much does it cost to install a home charger?
Electric cars are an ideal way to save money and decrease pollution at the same time. An electric car runs off of a battery that you can charge at a commercial charging station or at home. Most electric cars come equipped with a Level 1 charger that you can plug into any conventional 120-volt outlet, but most people prefer a faster, dedicated charging point at home. Costs vary subject to where you live, which station you acquire, and whether it is portable or is hardwired to your home.
How much does a home charge point cost?
A home charge station usually costs around £800. They may cost considerably more or less based on the type you select. This may appear to be a lot, but the UK government is presently extending a grant of up to 75% of a brand-new charge station’s cost, with an utmost contribution of £350. Consequently, you may pay less than £100 to purchase a home charge station, with the average being in the vicinity of £450.
