How Much Does It Cost to Install an Electric Vehicle Charging Station?

Published on March 31st, 2021

Electric vehicles are rapidly growing in popularity. As a cleaner energy source, using these cars will reduce pollution levels and promote a healthier environment. However, because you will no longer need to fuel up at the local gas station, it’s time to explore your charging options. We proudly offer electric car charging installations in Wilmette to ensure you have all the power you need, but how much will it cost?

The Average Cost of Installation

Electric car charging stations can vary a bit in cost. But on average, you can expect to spend $1,500 to $2,000 not including the wall charger which should be purchased directly from the car manufacturer. The price is directly related to how far from your electrical panel you plan to park the vehicle and whether you have enough power in the existing panel to power the car charger.It’s never a good idea to attempt to install a car charging station on your own. The risks of working with your electrical system at this level is far too high to leave things to chance.

What About Garage Modifications?

In some situations, electric car chargers will require some modifications to your garage. Our electricians will evaluate your garage space and determine if any changes need to be made. After doing so, our team will provide you with an estimate for project so you can move forward with your plans.
