Many models already have a good range, but it is important for the user to have nearby charging points so that recharging their vehicle is as comfortable as possible. Facing this need, SP Solar offers its customers various options for charging points for electric cars.

3. Charging point on public roads

If you are a public body or company and you want to provide a charging point on the street.

In today’s post we will focus on charging points in private parking lots of single-family houses and community parking lots (community of neighbors).

Charging point in private parking

If you have a private parking, your charging point is it will ideally feed the electricity meter of your home. In this way you can take advantage of the power that you have contracted and thus avoid paying for a new supply of light dedicated exclusively to it.

Thus, the installation to be carried out will connect your charging point, located in your own parking space, to the location of your meter or electrical panel. Thanks to this, the energy supplied to your electric vehicle will depend exclusively on your supply and you will have full control.

Charging point in community parking

In this case, you must request authorization from the community to carry out this installation of the charging point. We recommend that you consult with them what documentation you must provide them in order to communicate it to us and prepare it for you without obligation.

For these cases, if you do not live in the same building as the parking lot or your meter is at a considerable distance (more than 80 meters), the possibility of ask your distributor the installation of a new electricity meter / supply dedicated to your charging point. This request for the new meter has an additional cost to the recharge point that will depend on the distributor.

It is important to bear in mind that the processing times are slow and can take a few months. Therefore, if you plan to buy an electric vehicle soon, and this is your case, go ahead and do not get caught by surprise.

How much is a charging point worth?

The price of the installation of the charging point is directly related to the loading speed of the requested charger and with the existing distance between your parking space and your electricity meter or light box.

For installations in private car parks of single-family houses and for community car parks we recommend:

Wall-box or specific load point: We install a device specially designed for charging electric vehicles, known as the Wall-box. They are safer (avoid overloads), allow to adjust the power, are faster than conventional plugs and most come equipped with an app for programming, blocking and other tasks.

Depending on the model, they have powers from 3.7 kW to 7.4 kW and outlets from 16 to 32 A. The initial investment for their installation ranges between € 900 and € 1,500, depending on the selected model of charger and the meters of cable needed between your parking space and electric light meter / panel.
