How much does it cost to install an electric car charger?
The cost to install an electric car charger has many different factors that play into the price. These factors include but are not limited to:
Where is your electrical panel located?
If your electrical panel is located in your basement, it will raise the price as it is a further distance to route the wire to the garage. It also depends if it is finished or unfinished. If it is finished, more labor is required raising the price as well. If your panel is in an unfinished garage, your price is expected to be much lower.
Does your panel have breaker space?
Space in the panel is required to put in the breaker needed for your electric car charger. If there is no space, tandem breakers or a new panel may be required. Adding additional costs to your price.
Will you be purchasing the charger?
Chargers vary in price depending on which one you decide to purchase. Level 2 chargers come in a variety of different amperages. Meaning that some charge faster than others. Check with your vehicle to see which charger works best for that model.
Amount of material and labor needed:
Based on the above factors, will determine the amount of material and labor needed. Depending on what you need, will affect the total cost to install your electric car charger.
