How much do EV chargers cost?
This is a question a lot of people ask them selves when deciding what charger to get.
The simple honest answer is, no 2 installations are the same.
But we at, Bedoya Electrical, have worked out some deals to make it affordable and easy to get a price.
Prices start from only £35 after the grant (£385 before the grant) for the installation, cable, clips and a few materials needed. Thats plus the charger. Every charger brand has different prices.
We have 3 types of installations. Plus any optional extras if required.
It's all down bellow.
This one is for the simple installations and will cover 90% of all installs.
This one is also the cheapest installation in London.
The requirements for this installation are down bellow
Maximum of 10m cable in SWA.
Using 'Invincible' clips on brick walls
Drill through a maximum of 2 walls.
Must have 1 spare fuse/MCB at the consumer unit/ fuse board.
Gas and water bonding must be present
Consumer unit/ Fuse board in good usable condition
Cable clipped to the wall at a maximum height of 2m and not under floor boards or inside the wall.
Maximum of 5 hours on site
Some chargers need a cable from the meter to the charger, if yours needs this then the cable will be tied with cable ties together to the main power cable. The meter must be next to the fuseboard.
PEN fault detective device built into charger if needed. Most have this.
DC RCD built into charger. Most have this.
No RCBO needed for the charger, you must either have RCD at the fuseboard or the charger will have RCD protection
This installation costs just £35 if you are claiming the grant plus the charger. If you have an even simpler install then it can be cheaper. Get in contact with us on 02031678729 and we can work with you
£385 if you are not claiming the grant.
If we go for the Project EV, which is the cheapest charger, then your looking at only £449*
You can add some extras which are down bellow, this is incase your installation will be similar to the standard but not quite there.
This one is similar to the standard installation but just has a longer cable of up to 25m.
On site a maximum of 8 hours.
Everything else is the same as the standard installation.
This one costs just £290 if you are claiming the grant plus the charger.
It's £640 if you don't want to claim the grant.
Could be cheaper but contact us to confirm.
If your installation is not the standard or the longer installation, then we will need to price you separately. Contact us on 02031678729 or fill in the form bellow and we will quote you using images and videos or do a free site survey if needed.
Like we said before, no 2 jobs are the same. And we also know that some installations may meet some of the requirements but not all. So for this reason we have made it easy for you, by just adding extra bits needed. Prices for these are bellow.
Extra mini consumer unit/ fuse bard with surge protection . Must be in on the same wall as your meter and current consumer unit. Parts and labour from £200
Surge protector. This will protect your car from surges up to 40KA. A small thing to save a car from irreparable damage. You need 2 free extra ways in your consumer unit. From £60 if fitting to your current consumer unit (prices depend on your brand of consumer unit but 90% should be just around £60).
If your charger needs a clamp to your meter tails and you don't want a cable just tied to the main power cable, its an extra £4 per meter. Your meter and consumer unit must be in the same area.
All prices include VAT. Videos or pictures must be sent when requested to verify your installation. Prices may change if its not a straightforward install.
