Strom provider recommendations for EVs

12 posts in this topic

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone has a suggestion for a strom supplier/contract with specific benefits for EVs or at least much cheaper prices for charging at night.

I also heard it is possible to have a subsidy to pay part of the installation of a charger. Is that true?

Yes that's true. I haven't installed one in my garage yet as I can charge for free in several places in and around Offenbach. Charge card wise I suggest the ADAC eCharge card. It's a flat rate of about 0.27€ per kwh wherever you charge.

 

Actually I'm considering running a regular power line to my garage, not a Wallbox. Because if it's sitting for 14 h anyway, it's plenty of time.

I already have a garage with a plug, but E.ON increased the kWh cost. As I only charge at night, I was wondering if there is a night time contract with cheaper price.

Mike,

See https://www.kfw.de/inlandsfoerderung/Privatpersonen/Bestehende-Immobilie/F%C3%B6rderprodukte/Ladestationen-f%C3%BCr-Elektroautos-Wohngeb%C3%A4ude-(440)/

 

KFW offer a 900 Euro grant towards the installation cost.

 

Also munich offers up to 40% of the cost

I looked into this a while back and, at the time (I still don't have an EV) installed a charging point at the back of the parking garage. Really should have put it at the front. I opted for the type 2 charger (400v, 32A, 22Kw), which is the typical three phase German one. Most cars however, only do single charging, so despite having a 22Kw charger, most charge at between 7Kw and 11kw, or of you are using a standard plug socket around 2 to 3Kw.

 

You love the Tesla. I am still tempted, so looked up the charging. Most commercial places seem to have either 11Kw or 22Kw chargers. Map for Munich:

We did once have, years ago a NT and HT meter. It was at most a few cents difference in price, with the HT cost actually being higher than the regular cost.

Thank you for the whole post! Right now I'm actually fine with a normal 16A plug, it's more than enough.

Yeah, I also saw that 2 years ago and definitely made no economical sense, due to the installation cost.

But it seems now these "smart" meters are installed free(?) by the supplier, so you don't need 2 meters. I definitely spend more than half on NT, so that could make sense.

Do you have a suggestion for a supplier with good prices? E.ON has such service, but unfortunately it tells me that specific service is not available in my area.
