Socket and Wallbox

If you charge your electric car at home using a socket or Wallbox, you will pay for the battery charge on your next electricity bill. It couldn’t be simpler. In Ireland, our government (through SEAI) provides a €600 grant toward the purchase and installation of a home charger unit.
