It’s important to remember. Your Host isn’t selling electricity – they’re renting their charger to you. The price they set takes into account:
We recommend somewhere between £1.75 and £2.00 per hour for a standard, 7.4kW charger, but each Host’s circumstances will vary. If the charger is slower they may charge less per hour; if it’s faster they’ll need to charge more to cover the electricity cost.
There’s also a minimum rate (at least £1) for each session. The host sets this to cover their time for setting up the session(s). If you carry out a short charge, you’ll pay that minimum amount.
