Home charge points are available in 3kW and 7kW forms, but 7kW chargers are most common. They come in a lot of different styles, whether you’re after a futuristic design to be a feature of your driveway, or a small, subtle covering to hide your charge point inside something like a wood-effect box.
According to the RAC, a home charge point typically costs around £800. They can cost significantly more or less, depending on the type you go for. This may seem like a lot, but the UK government is currently offering a grant of up to 75% of a new charge point’s cost, with a maximum contribution of £350. The grant came to an end in April 2022 for private homeowners and instead became available to B&Bs, small accommodation businesses, Tenants & landlords, charities and owners of commercially let premises. This will mean, for example, that the owner of a holiday cottage can claim up to £350 off the cost of a charging point, and it can be used by guests staying on the premises; previously they could only claim if the charge point was being used by their own staff.
Considerations for installation are the location and proximity of your desired charge point with regard to your supply, and the availability of spare capacity at your consumer unit.
