5 Benefits of Having an EV Home Charger in Ireland

It’s 2021 and electric vehicles have been around for a while. Everybody is aware they are cheaper to use, help reduce air pollution, and thus, they are a healthier choice for you and your family.

But what about EV chargers? Do you use public charging stations or install home EV chargers? Which is more convenient and more importantly, which is cheaper? Also, how much does it cost to install a home charger?

5 Benefits of Having an EV Home Charger in Ireland

There are many questions regarding the charging of electric vehicles. With this blog post, you will learn about the benefits of having an EV home charger in Ireland.

  1. EV Home Charger is Convenient

    This one is obvious. If you have a charging station at home, you don’t need a local charge point. There is no need to drive a few kilometres just to charge your car. And what do you do while your EV is charging?

    Home charging allows you to charge at night and drive to work in the morning. Or charge the car while you are at work and come home to a full battery, ready for a weekend getaway.

  2. Price Is a Factor

    EV home chargers in Ireland are cheaper than public stations. That is a simple fact. When you charge at home you can get the most out of nighttime electricity rates without sacrificing convenience.

    What’s more, you can subsidize the price of the home charger with a €300 SEAI Grant. If you are not sure you are eligible, you can read more about it here.

  3. Use More Renewable Energy

    The thing about public charging is that they are not using 100% green energy. Even with Ireland’s renewable energy plan, the country was using only 11% renewable energy in 2018.

    This is a great improvement but it cannot compare to almost 100% green energy you can get at home with a good solar and wind system and an EV home charger that can make the most out of renewable energy.

  4. EV Home Charger Can Increase Your Property’s Value

    According to a Transport & Environment report created in 2019. There were a little more than 120 000 electric vehicles registered in the first quarter of that year. Electric vehicles are here to stay and any investment you make in that direction is a good investment in the future and the value of your property.

  5. When You Hire Professionals, It is Easy
