How Much Does it Cost to Charge an Electric Vehicle at Home?

If you are wondering how much it costs to charge an electric vehicle at home, the EPA has provided a simple way to calculate the cost.

 It estimates that it will cost about $2 per mile to drive an EV for up to 15,000 miles. 

This cost is based on the amount of electricity used to charge an EV, and the time of day. 

The price of electricity varies widely in the U.S., from around nine cents per kilowatt hour in Alabama to 35.6 cents per kilowatt-hour in Hawaii. 

Residential rates vary by provider, and your bill will likely have the per-kilowatt-hour rate listed. 

To save money on charging, consider purchasing a Level 2 charger. These will cost you about $2,000, including the installation.

They can cut charging time in half and can be a valuable addition to your home. Alternatively, you can buy a membership at a charging network
