How much does it cost to install an electric vehicle charging station in Encinitas?
Electric vehicle charging station installation in Encinitas starts at around $400. This is the price for a simple NEMA outlet close to your electrical panel. If we need to add a pipe or install a circuit larger than 50 amps, your installation cost will increase accordingly. Tesla Wall Charger installation for a Model 3 at 60 amps generally starts at about $550. You should also plan to pay an additional fee for a permit. The amount of this fee is determined by your City Planning Department and varies from city to city. One of the electricians at Ms. Sparky can help you obtain the required permits, so you are in compliance with your city’s codes.
You can purchase an electric vehicle charger from your vehicle’s manufacturer, or you can go through a reputable company like Quick Charge Power in San Marcos (ask us about any discounts available from Quick Charge Power). Our Encinitas electricians, all of whom are very experienced in electric vehicle charging station installation, will complete the installation for you in a timely manner and according to code, so you can begin charging your electric vehicle in the convenience of your own garage or at your place of business. We have many satisfied customers for whom we’ve installed EV charging stations. References are available upon request.
If your existing electrical panel is unable to support an electric vehicle charging station, we can install a new panel or upgrade your existing panel for you. The cost of this will vary according to the panel upgrade you choose. Typically when we do electrical panel upgrades, we install a solar-rated panel, so you can install solar panels on your home at a later date without having to upgrade your electrical panel a second time.
We do installations for all types of electric vehicle chargers, including vehicle-specific chargers for:
- Chevy Volt
- Chevy Bolt
- Nissan LEAF
- BMW i models
- All Tesla models
