What is a wallbox and why do I need one?
A wallbox is a wall charging unit that refuels your electric car. It is better than a standard household plug socket in many ways. Not only can a charging station recharge your car much faster and more efficiently, it also saves 5-6% energy and is thus more eco-friendly. It is also safer and smart. You can read more on this in our Wallbox vs. Household Plug Sockets article.
Which steps must I take if I want to have a charging station at home?
Fortunately, not too many. Once the new law is passed, landlords and ownership communities in Germany will only be able to resist an installation in exceptional cases. You will then have every right to have a wallbox in your home. Simply contact your landlord or property management company to discuss the specifics. It is worth noting that you will need to register with your local distribution network operator before a charging station can be installed at home in Germany. If the charging capacity exceeds 12 kW, the distribution network operator will need to approve the wallbox. A qualified electrician can do all of this for you.
A wallbox charges your car fast, safely, and eco-friendly.
