Home Charging Calculator

Use our Home Charging Calculator to find out how long and how much it costs to charge an electric car at home. You can tailor the results to your home energy costs.

Given that private cars are usually parked overnight, most electric car owners rely on home charging to ensure that their EV is ready for use each morning. As well as being convenient, home-based overnight charging also has the advantage of being, in most cases, the cheapest time to recharge.
