Costs: At Home vs Public Charging Stations

The decision to install an EV charger at home often hinges on the cost comparison vs using public charging stations. You’ll be pleased to know that charging at home offers a considerable saving.

Home Charging Expenses:

The average cost of electricity in the UK is about £0.14 to £0.20 per kWh. For a typical EV with a 60 kWh battery, a full charge at home would cost between £8.40 and £12. This calculation assumes off-peak rates, which many homeowners take advantage of for overnight charging.

During the day rates can be as much as double so it’s important to make sure your charger is programmed to only charge your car during the cheaper periods. We can assist with this as part of our EV charger install process and handover.

Public Charging Station Rates:

Public EV charging rates vary, but on average, they are higher than home charging. Rapid charging stations, which are more expensive, can charge rates up to £0.30 to £0.40 per kWh. Consequently, fully charging a 60 kWh EV battery could cost between £18 and £24.

The only upside of using a public charging station is that often charging time is much reduced, especially if using superchargers, however you are relying on their being a spot available for you to charge when you arrive.

That being said ev chargers in Northumberland are often essential at home due to a lack of charging stations in the region.

Preparing for EV Charger Installation Day

Ensuring a smooth and efficient installation of your EV charger at home requires some key preparations on your part. Here’s a detailed guide to help you get ready for the installation day:

Clear & Accessible Installation Area

Ensure the area where the charger is to be installed is clear of any obstructions. This includes moving vehicles, garden equipment, or any other items that might impede access.

If the installation area is in a garage or a specific part of your driveway, make sure there is ample space for the installers to work comfortably and safely. If it’s raining on your install day our engineer will erect a portable

Communication with the Installer

If you have received a pre-installation plan or layout from the installer, review it before the installation day. This ensures you are aware of what the installation entails.

Prepare a list of questions or concerns you may have about the installation process. This could include queries about the duration of installation, safety measures, or post-installation procedures.

On the Day of Installation

Verify the identity of the installers when they arrive. They should be able to provide identification and proof of affiliation with the installation company.

Accompany the installers during their initial walkthrough and discuss any last-minute considerations or changes.

Post-Installation Checks

After installation, ask the installer to demonstrate the charger’s functionality. This includes how to connect and disconnect your EV, and how to read any indicators on the charger.

Request a brief on safety features and emergency procedures related to your new EV charger.

By thoroughly preparing for the installation day, you can ensure that the process is as seamless and efficient as possible, paving the way for a hassle-free EV charging experience at your home.
