Can I install an EV charger in my home?

No, a licensed electrician must install your EV charger. 

You can use the charging cable that comes with the car with a regular household outlet - this is called a Level 1 charging device. A Level 2 devices employ 240-volt circuits, the same type of electrical circuit used in clothes dryers, and requires an electrician to install a dedicated circuit along with the EV charger.

A Level 3 charging station may easily cost $50,000 and is intended for business usage. Even if you had that type of money to spend, your electric company is unlikely to allow the installation of a Level 3 charger in your house since the electrical infrastructure in many residential locations will not support it.

How much does it cost to install an EV charging station in my home?

A wall-mounted system with a Level 2, 240-volt outlet is one of the most typical EV charging stations. These systems range in price from $850 to $2,200, with an average cost of $1,200 for your Cape Coral area home.

A preliminary walk-through with an electrician should give you a fair sense of the whole cost.

The typical cost of any electrical service rises when more work is necessary, such as:

  • Adding a dedicated circuit to the electrical panel costs between $148 and $200.
  • The cost of replacing an outdated electrical panel is $2,500.
  • Wiring costs and average of $7.79 per linear foot from the charging station to the electrical panel.
What are the benefits of an at-home EV charging station?

You can charge your electric vehicle effectively and quickly from the comfort of your own home with a rapid EV charger. That means you'll never have to worry about not being able to find a charging station. With a constant charging cycle, you can fit your car's charging demands into your schedule and never worry about finding a charging station again.

Which Charger is Right for My Electric Vehicle?

When it comes to charging an electric car, the charger type is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Many factors go into which charger would work best for the vehicle. These factors include:

  • Make/Model of Car- The make and model will indicate the capacity of the vehicle’s on-board charger and the battery pack size. You will need a charger powerful enough to recharge the battery.
  • Quickness of Recharge- Most electric cars will recharge just fine with a Level 1 charger, while others need the quick power of a Level 2 charger.
  • Circuit Size- The charging station should not be allowed to exceed the capacity of your wiring, or it will overload and flip the circuit breaker.
