Electric Car Charging Point (Ladesäule) in rented parking

11 posts in this topic

I am changing jobs soon, and my new employer will provide me with a company car - a hybrid (electric and petrol motors). I saw whilst browsing the car manufacturers' pages, that you can get up to 900€ government support to install a private charging point - I have a few questions if anyone has experience or can maybe help answer them:

 

1) Can I get this subsidy for a company car (the standard 1% / 0.5% financing), or is this only for people with a privately-owned electric or hybrid car?

2) If I can get it, can I use it to install a charging point in a rented parking space (assuming the landlord also goes with the idea)? It could help persuade him, given he would then save 900€ and have the use of the charging point for future tenants.

3) Any other things to consider...

 

Thank you very much!

 

Ben

How would he be saving € 900? Is he planning to install one for you already?

Don't plan on keeping it for long, hybrids are going to have its benefits phased out soon. Already happened in other EU countries and will soon arrive to Germany, although AFAIK there is no date for it.

Have other people access to your rented space?

How do prevent them blocking / using your charging point (and electricity)?

 

Wall box (overnight charging) costs much more than €900.

Fast charger is in the € 10K price range.

 

Assuming multiple flats sharing one parking area, how do you run the cables from "your" meter

down to the parking space? Probably not, on second thoughts needs a new, separate meter.

What if the new tenant has a stink car and not a silent one?

 

Sorry to rain on your parade. I'd just get them to have a charging point at work

for you to fill up when at your desk. Or just a charge card for the systems in your area.

 

 

We had a look at fitting a charging system for some shared offices I use.

Was eventually prohibitively expensive and dropped the idea as several 

supermarkets around our way fitted (40 minute) charging systems.

Does your rented parking space even have the electrical infrastructure necessary to put in a charging station?

 

I live a Neubau complex, with a shared Tiefgarage that was completed in 2017.  The Tiefgarage not only has no loading stations, it does not have the capability of supporting any.

That does surprise me somewhat... or maybe it doesnt...

 

Charging stations ( Wall box ) will work on 240V which is quite possibly what powers the hights in the garage... 

 

The electric supply from SUWAG usually come from "underground"... so there should be enough supply ...

We are allowed to install a charging station in our rented Tiefgarage place at out own expense according to the Hausverwaltung. This is not a new house. I guess we could sell it on if we did so or remove it. The garage is huge and also serves the office building in our hof with many empty spaces. 

 

There must be some power down there somewhere in order to have the possibility.

Thank you for the answer so far... It's a personal parking space in a raising / lowering system. I already checked with the manufacturer that it is possible to install a charging point, so my landlord can't claim otherwise! I thought about drilling a hole in the car end of the cable, and using a padlock, whilst enclosing the charger end, so no-one can remove the cable from the wallbox. I am not concerned about crime - it's a closed, locked garage, and the neighbours are trustworthy. The cost for a wallbox is not 10k€ as far as I could see, rather around 4k€ with full installation, when installing only 1 unit. If they decide to install in several, then the unit price drops...

Well, it will also work for full electric...
