Should I get a home charger for my electric car?

How do home chargers work?

  • Charge your EV at home through a home charge point, which can supply your car with 3.6kW to 7.2kW

Why to install an EV home charge point:

  • Quick and convenient
  • Reduce your electricity costs by taking advantage of cheap night rate tariffs
  • Maximize sustainable energy use by using solar to charge your EV

Cost to install an EV charging station at home:  

  • Minus SEAI's grant, most electric vehicle car charger insallations will set you back around €1000

Available Home Charger Grants

You can claim up to €600 towards the purchase and installation of a home charging point with SEAI Ireland here

Any private owner who buys an eligible EV may apply for this grant. To receive payment, you must ensure that you use a Safe Electric Registered Electrical Contractor. WeSwitchU will only connect you to SAFE contractors to assure your elegibility.

Other eligibility criteria:

  • The Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN), which you can find on your electricity bill, will be used to confirm the location of your home.
  • The property cannot be associated with a previous EV home charge point grant payment. Additionally, it cannot have availed of the free ESB Ecars home charger pre 2018.
  • Do not commence any work before the start date on your Letter of Offer otherwise this expenditure will be deemed ineligible and you will not receive grant support for it.
