Installing an electric vehicle charger at your home comes with a wide array of benefits, including improved convenience, savings on the time it takes to charge your vehicle, savings on the costs associated with charging your vehicle, the potential for government rebates to cover some of the costs associated with an EV charger installation, and more. If you have any questions about the benefits of installing a home EV charger or are considering installing an electric vehicle charger at your home in the Southeastern Massachusetts region, please contact our team at RCA Electric & Generators today!

Convenience

One of the primary benefits of installing an electric vehicle charger at your home is the convenience it will bring you. Once you’ve installed an EV charger at your house, gone will be the days of regularly visiting public charging stations. You can charge your vehicle while you sit in the comfort of your own home! In addition to the convenience of charging your EV right in your own garage, a home electric vehicle charger will give you peace of mind knowing that you’ll always be leaving your house with a full charge, reducing concerns about running out of battery power during your daily commute or trips.

Money Saving

The next benefit of installing an EV charger at your home is that it can save you money in the long run. By charging your vehicle at home, you can avoid the higher costs associated with using a public EV charger. According to the Department of Energy, using a home EV charger to give you enough charge to drive the American average of 1,124 miles per month would only cost you around $60 per month, using the U.S. household average energy cost of about 16 cents per kWh.

Time Saving

Another benefit of installing a home electric vehicle charger is that it will save you countless amounts of time. Not only is home charging typically faster than charging at public stations, you’ll be able to charge your vehicle overnight rather than sitting around and waiting for your vehicle to charge at a public charging station. In addition to the flexible charging schedule that a home EV charger will give you, it will also eliminate the waiting times associated with charging at public charging stations, especially during peak times.

Government Rebates

One more benefit of installing a home electric vehicle (EV) charger, that we’ll mention in this article, is that you may qualify for a rebate from your energy provider. Here in Massachusetts, Eversource offers up to $1400 to offset the cost of the wiring or panel upgrade needed to install a 240-volt outlet for your home EV charger. In order to qualify for a rebate from Eversource in Massachusetts, you’ll need to install a Wi-Fi compatible level two smart charger that is no more than 80 amps and is listed in the State Appliance Standards Database. The level two smart chargers that Eversoure offers rebates for will charge your electric vehicle up to four times faster than a standard charger!
