Cost of installing an electric car home charger
Electric car charging at home is the most cost-effective and convenient way to fuel your EV. Naturally, you can use the 230v 3pin wall socket cable that comes with your electric car. However, you will be limited to about 3.3kWh of charge, the slowest way to charge an EV.
Most electric car owners opt for an AC “fast-charger”. Electric car home chargers come in many shapes, sizes and configurations. Portable electric car chargers, wall mounted electric car chargers, with and without onboard touch screens, however, all do the same thing, charge your electric car at about 7.4kWh to 11kWh (depending on your electric car’s onboard inverter) and sometimes 22kWh in a 3-phase installation.
Prices for these electric car chargers range anywhere from R7,000 to R13,000 depending on your needs.
