Charging station - WallBox E Smart

Electric mobility

Why buy a charging station?


Having a charging station at home makes it easy to charge your electric vehicle each night, ensuring you have a car ready to use each morning.

Saving money

Charging your electric vehicle at home is usually cheaper than charging it outside, especially if you use solar or wind power to generate electricity.

For the value of the property

Having a home charging station can increase the value of your property by making it more attractive to potential buyers who own or wish to purchase an electric vehicle.


Electric vehicle charging stations have a long service life, continue to operate for many years and are generally easy to maintain.

For the energy transition

 By using electric vehicles and installing charging stations, homeowners can contribute to the transition to cleaner, more sustainable energy

Electric mobility is the ability or property of persons or objects to move through a space by a means of transport that uses electrical energy partially or totally.

An electric vehicle is recharged using electrical energy. This energy is transferred to a battery which powers an electric motor to drive the vehicle.

The deployment of electric cars is increasing sharply every year, so in order to be able to recharge them, the installation of charging stations is essential.

To supply the charging stations different solutions can be implemented:

  • Conventional power supply (mains)
  • Combined system (grid + self-consumption photovoltaic installation)

Different solutions can be put in place:

  • Conventional power supply (mains)
  • Combined system (grid + self-consumption photovoltaic installation)

There are 4 charging modes for electric vehicles:

  • Top-up
    • Grounded household outlet
    • Number of km recovered: ≈ 10 km / hour
    • Power: 2.3 kW

  • Standard refill
    • Household socket with reinforced cable and fitted with a differential
    • Number of km recovered: ≈ 15 km / hour
    • Power: 3.7 kW

  • Normal (smart) charging
    • Electrical terminal with control device (charging control)
    • Number of km recovered: ≈ 30 to 120 km / hour
    • Power: 3 kW to 43 kW

  • DC Fast charging
    • Fast charging infrastructure (in public places, car parks or motorway areas)
    • Number of km recovered: ≈ 200 km / hour
    • Power : ≥ 50 kW

The charging time for an electric vehicle depends on several factors such as

  • The capacity of the battery
  • The power of the charging station
  • The current state of charge of the battery
  • If the vehicle is using fast charge or standard charge

On average, it takes about 8 hours to fully charge an electric car with a standard 240-volt home charging station and 7 kilowatts of power. However, if you use a more powerful 11-22 kW charging station, it can reduce the charging time by up to 4 hours.

The cost of charging an electric vehicle depends on several factors such as:

  • The cost of electricity in your area
  • The type of charging station used
  • The number of kilometers travelled
  • The cost of the charging equipment (home charging station, subscription to a charging service, etc.)

On average, it costs about 3 to 4 € to fully charge an electric car with a standard home charging station of 240 volts and a power of 7 kilowatts, if we consider the electricity rate in France. This is about 1/3 of the cost of the same distance traveled with a gasoline car. However, it is important to note that these costs can vary considerably depending on local electricity rates and government incentive programs. Therefore, it is important to check the electricity rates in your area and look at the incentive programs available to help you estimate the cost of charging your electric vehicle.
