EV Chargers: Is It Worth It To Install?

Phone chargers, laptop chargers, shaver chargers, vacuum chargers… our home simply wouldn’t function without these things. Think about all the times you’d get stuck without a phone or laptop charger at home! And with the switch to an electric vehicle, it’s only natural to ask the same question: is it worth it to install one, or can I ‘get away’ without it?

In short, yes, it’s 100% worth investing in an EV charger at home, and no, you probably can’t get away without one. Here, the team at Plusrite outline some solid reasons on why EV chargers aren’t just ‘worth’ installing, but are absolutely vital to your home.

EV infrastructure in Australia isn’t advanced enough

Right now, there are just enough charging facilities for EVs in Australia, depending on where you live. Australia has over 3000 charging stations for electric vehicles. While this may seem like plenty, especially when you stack it up against the number of new EVs that were sold last year – around 20,000 cars – it’s certainly not going to hold up for long.

By 2030, it’s estimated that 3 million electric cars will be gracing Australian roads. And to accommodate for 3 million electric cars, it’s estimated that we’ll need access to around 2.8 million charging stations, nationwide.

It seems unlikely that Australia will be able to produce 2.8 million charging stations in the next 20 years, let alone 8 years. That’s why almost every Aussie EV owner is investing in their own home charging station.

Peace of mind – never get stuck

The beauty of having a charging station at home lies in never worrying about running out of juice. This way, you just plug your car in when you’re home from work and relax until tomorrow morning, knowing you’ve got a full battery to get to work on. Relying on public charging stations can’t always work out in your favour, if all the nearby chargers are occupied.

It’s more affordable

While EV home chargers come with an upfront cost, they pay off massively in the long run. Home chargers are far cheaper to charge your car than the rates you pay at a public station. After a while of charging your car at home, you’ll make back the money of having it installed.

It’s a value-adder

View a home charging station as more of an investment, rather than an expense. Adding value to your home is another huge bonus of investing in a home charging station, making it well worth the money. If you go to sell your home in the foreseeable future, you may make the whole sum of the charger back as they’re a desirable home feature.

Be smart, and invest in your own EV charger from Plusrite. Plusrite are Australia’s premier team for great value home electric chargers.

Amazing service. After ordering from Michael I expected the lights to take a week to get to Brisbane (like many items I buy from interstate suppliers), but no, these turned up the next business day. Well done.

Purchased the AU08-DL30W/W/S downlights with romote in October 2020 but only installed 3 weeks ago. They are great lights & the remote & setup are very easy to use. I Installed the new downlights as the existing downlights had power sockets in the ceiling space which meant that I could unplug my old ones & simply plug in the new ones. That was easy apart from having to enlarge the plaster hole size & make good. The amount of overall light & spread is great & the dimming works really well. I intend to buy more of these soon

Plusrite LED has provided 38off High Bay LED industrial lighting units to replace the old mercury vapour HB lights in our large Industrial complex at Darra, Queensland. What impressed us and our tenant was, the simple 5year full replacement warranty, the high efficacy 190 Lms/Watt and the pricing was competitive with other units offered. The number of lights recommended per bay were closer to our Tenants requirements then the other 3 offers and has result proved to be better than expected. RN Tupicoff Pty Ltd.
