Here are a few items that may impact the total cost:

1. Your geographic location
Where do you live? Electrician labor rates can vary significantly throughout the country. Installation costs tend to be higher in big cities and major metropolitan areas.

See the cost table below to see how prices vary from coast to coast »

2. Type of hardware
The cost of the charging station itself can range anywhere from $550 to $2,000 - depending on the brand, make, and/or model you choose. If you plan on buying the charging station yourself, make sure to choose one that's compatible with your electric vehicle. It's very important to do your research! How long it will take for your car to fully charge? "Fast charging" hardware is typically more expensive. How much will your utility bills increase? Is there a manufacturer's warranty?

3. Current condition of your home's electrical wiring
Most electricians recommend that your home have (at least) 200-amp service before installing an electric vehicle charging station. If you live in an older home with 100-amp service, you may need to upgrade your electric service panel before the EVSE (electric vehicle supply equipment) can be installed. In some cases, this may increase the cost of your project by several thousand dollars. Check out this article to learn more about the cost of upgrading to 200 amp service.

If you already have 200-amp service, you may not be out of the woods yet. You may still need the electrician to install a 240-volt outlet or a 40-amp circuit. Any improvements to your home's electrical system may come at an additional cost.

4. Charging station location
Where do you plan on installing the charging station hardware? In your garage? On the side of your house? The distance from your home's electrical panel (or breaker box) to the charging station will have an impact on the total cost of your project. The longer you have to run the wires, the more you can expect to pay.

5. Tax credits and incentives
Some jurisdictions offer tax incentives to people who choose to adopt this technology. Before you begin your project, do some research to see if you qualify for any of these programs. It may help to shave a few dollars off the final bill.
