Whether you currently own an electric vehicle or plan on buying one in the future, one thing is certain – electric vehicles are here to stay. Sales are expected to skyrocket, as experts predict the EV market will achieve a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of roughly 22.5% between 2022 and 2030.

However, rapid growth inevitably brings about various challenges. One of the challenges many EV owners face is finding a place to charge their vehicles. Public charging stations are often not always conveniently located, can have long lines and come with high costs. The solution to this problem is installing an EV charging station at your home.


The licensed electricians at Ravinia Plumbing, Sewer, Heating & Electric can provide an EV charging station and install it for you. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.

What Are the Benefits of Installing an Electric Vehicle Charging Station at Home?

Some of the most common benefits of installing an at-home EV charging station include:


Charging your EV from the comfort of your home is extremely convenient. You can say goodbye to searching for an EV charging station nearby or waiting hours for your turn. An at-home charging station is like having your own personal fuel pump in your garage. Like your cell phone, you can charge your EV overnight while you’re sleeping so it’s ready to go in the morning.

Cost Savings

Charging your electric vehicle at home is generally more cost-effective compared to relying on public EV charging stations. Home electricity costs are often lower, especially during off-peak hours, allowing you to charge your vehicle at a reduced cost. Over time, these savings can add up, lowering overall operating costs for your EV.

Increased Property Value

As electric vehicles become more mainstream and America improves the infrastructure to support the industry, at-home electric vehicle charging stations will become more desirable to prospective home buyers. Home EV chargers can help increase your home’s property when you put it on the market.

Increased Range Confidence

Owning a home charging station gives you the flexibility to maintain your EV’s battery level consistently. You can start each day with a full or desired charge, providing peace of mind and eliminating concerns about finding available charging stations or range anxiety during your daily commute or longer trips.

Energy Management and Efficiency

Some home charging stations offer features that allow you to schedule and manage charging times, taking advantage of off-peak electricity rates or renewable energy generation. This helps optimize your energy usage and promotes energy efficiency by minimizing reliance on the grid during peak demand periods.

Personalized Charging Experience

With a home electric vehicle charging station, you have control over the charging process. You can set the charging speed, monitor charging progress and customize settings to meet your specific needs and preferences. This level of control enhances the overall experience and allows you to tailor the charging process to suit your lifestyle.

Potential for Incentives and Rebates

Depending on your location, installing a home EV charger may make you eligible for government incentives, tax credits or utility rebates aimed at promoting sustainable transportation and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. These financial incentives can help offset the initial cost of installation and make home charging more affordable.
