Funding programme for private charging stations to be further increased
That's not all! The subsidy for private charging stations for electric cars (subsidy 440) will be increased once again. This time even by a whole 300 million euros, the Deutsche Presse Agentur reported from government circles. The programme will probably be financed from energy and climate funds.
Transport Minister Andreas Scheuer (CSU) called for €200 million to be made available again at the beginning of July. The fact that it has now become even more will please all electric fans, because the 500 million euros to date have been used up quickly. This development is due to the current high demand for wallboxes and thus the funding programme. You can find out how to apply for a private subsidy and how it works here here. It is not necessary to own an electric car or plug-in hybrid to qualify for the subsidy. So if you are planning to buy an electric car in the near future, you can make provisions now with the appropriate charging option. Most of our wallboxes are eligible for subsidies or can be made eligible for subsidies by having the electrician install them. In this case, 22kW wallboxes are throttled down to 11kW so that the requirements of a subsidy application are approved. Here you can find our KfW-subsidised wallboxes.
Per charging point, the subsidy is exactly 900€. The subsidised costs include:
- The purchase price of a new charging station (e.g. wallbox) with 11 kW charging power and intelligent control
- The cost of installing and connecting the charging station, including all installation work
- The costs of an energy management system to control the charging station
