Costs Associated With Non-Residential EVSE

As more drivers purchase plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs), there is a growing need for a network of electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) to provide power to those vehicles.  PEV drivers will primarily charge their vehicles using residential EVSE, but there is also a need for non-residential EVSE in workplace, public, and fleet settings.  This report provides information about the costs associated with purchasing, installing, and owning non-residential EVSE.  Cost information is compiled from various studies around the country, as well as input from EVSE owners, manufacturers, installers, and utilities.  The cost of a single port EVSE unit ranges from $300-$1,500 for Level 1, $400-$6,500 for Level 2, and $10,000-$40,000 for DC fast charging.  Installation costs vary greatly from site to site with a ballpark cost range of $0-$3,000 for Level 1, $600-$12,700 for Level 2, and $4,000-$51,000 for DC fast charging.
