Cost comparison for EV chargers

I’m curious to know what people are paying for EV chargers to be installed with the grant?

I know every install is different, i appreciate that but longer runs are not going to be crazy more expensive.

I’ve been quoted for an EV charger at £1,000 for a 7kw hypervolt which is a little more trickier install than the average. It’s going in a a garage which is located 10 meters from the house and I’m based in south london, if that makes any difference??

The cable run is about 20 meters and it’s going to run under the house floor for only a meter or so.

Just curious to understand what others are paying as I saw one guy pay £400 for a charger and install which is crazy different.
 
Having seen this discussed a number of times before, the range seems to be around £600 - £1200 'depending'.

Mine was about £950 but that included a 25m cable run and a lot of faffing about in the garage roof.
Yeh I did search for threads but couldn’t see anything. Search feature in this forum isn’t the best. Might take you to a thread but to find a specific post Is hard to come by.

When did you get this fitted?
 
If the only part required was 0.5m of cabling then I think we can say it wasn't done to regulation spec.
It was put in temporarily, next to the DB as we're having work done on the outside of the house/driveway and plan to park the cars further from the home. They'll be back to shift it and run the armored cable through ducting to its final resting place once the paving has gone down and retaining wall has been built.

Ah right. (It's supposed to be on its own circuit. Even if that is from within the house consumer unit it's going to need its own dedicated EV spec breaker. Many/most installations have this within a separate switched mini consumer box.)

Which it does..... Sorry I was just giving the OP an idea of the cost, I wasn't detailing the install.

My podpoint cost £599 with the grant, including a fairly standard installation (cable run was only 3 or so meters)

Are they still doing installs before the grant ends? On the podpoint site it says all installs are booked up to the end of March
Mine with Podpoint was £599 but they have really frustrated me. They sat on the remote survey for over two weeks and when I was expecting them to give an install date they came back with a list of things that I need to get an electrician to do (its only a 5 year old house!). Phoned about 20 electricians in the last two days all of whom are saying it'll be over a week until they can even have a look and no idea when they'd be able to do the job. It's now highly unlikely I'll have a home charger by the time my Y arrives.

7kW Zappi Charger cost me about £800 fitted (no Grant)

22kW Zappi (Zippy) Charger is costing me £2,400 fitted. (£400 VAT claimed back, and Grant claimed). So my Company is really paying £2,000

The latter needing about 25 metres of 3 phase cabling, cat5 cabling, IP rated 3 phase box, 3 phase distribution board, setting up with load balancing, commissioning & certification.

EV247 and EVBug do it for the £350 grant, mine is an easy install but they told me it's the same price for everyone, swings and roundabouts for them

That's very frustrating. I had mine done by a local car charger specialist and not via podpoint. He actually came out because I was interested in a Hypervolt, but ended up installing the Pod as they were less expensive and come with a longer tethered cable...
