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

I want to install a charger in my house for my Chevy Bolt. 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 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 likely cost between $250 and $700 for a basic installation.
  • It could 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.
Depending on where you live, it’s possible your utility provider might offer you a rebate or other incentives that can reduce your overall cost of purchasing and installing a level 2 EV charging station.
