How much does it cost to install a 240V outlet for an electric car?

While I do save a ton of money on gas by using public charging stations for my Chevy Bolt, I’m really wanting to install one in my house. I think it will be much more convenient, especially in the MN winter! I’ve decided on a Level 2 charger, and I’m wondering how much it costs to install a 240V charger for an electric car?

The Chevy Bolt is one of my favorite EVs, with an awesome driving range of 259 miles. And you’ll definitely appreciate having an at-home charger in during Minnesota’s colder months!
The cost of installing a Level 2 charger depends on the electrical capacity of your residence. And it will also depend on how often you drive your car and the amount of power you seek.
Here’s what we know about how much it costs to install a 240-volt outlet for your electric car:
  • If you already have a 240-volt circuit available in your home, it will cost between $250 and $700 for a basic installation.
  • It will cost you anywhere from **$400 to $1,700 **if you mount a station and then run 50-amp dedicated wiring.
  • Labor alone can cost $1,000 to $2,000 depending on where you’re located.
Now that you have a better idea of how much money to set aside for your new 240-volt charger, get to your savings goal faster by lowering your monthly car insurance bill. Most of us are paying_ way_ more than we need to!
