The cost of charging your electric vehicle at home
Electric vehicles are becoming more popular and will soon become the norm. However, many people are concerned about the cost of charging their electric car at home.
When it comes to the cost of charging an electric car or a plug-in hybrid, there are numerous variables to consider, as opposed to petrol or diesel cars, which only require consideration of the station fuel price. Similarly, the cost of charging an electric vehicle at home varies depending on when you charge, which tariff or charging network you use, the size of the battery, and how much energy you use.
The price of home charging
At home, a three-pin plug or a faster wall box can be used. The first does not require installation because you will be using existing connections in your home, but charging a car takes several hours and is best done overnight.
A standard wall box home-charging equipment’s power output ranges from 3 to 22 kW. Installing one will cost around £900.
Of course, the car itself will be the most influential factor in determining how much it will cost to charge your electric car at home. Some cars will cost more to charge than others.
