Nissan LEAF Q&A

WHAT DOES IT COST TO CHARGE THE NISSAN LEAF?

Top Top BIEKE P, TN

AT HOME ABOUT $20-$30/MONTH IN ELECTRICITY COSTS. WE WERE SPENDING $180 A MONTH ON GAS BEFORE.

If you need to charge while you’re out, it’s about $1/hr on Blink. That gets you 2-3 bars, and the max number of bars is 12.

I THINK MY BILL WENT UP ABOUT $15 WITH THE 110V CHARGER.

I CHARGE AT WORK FOR FREE!

Top Top JOSHUA B

$12-$20 DEPENDING ON HOW OFTEN I NEED TO GO IN TO TOWN.

My Blink charger estimates between $.50 and $.65 per trip.

Top Top JARED S, FL

IT'S ABOUT $50 PER MONTH

it's hard to pin it down as AC usage in south FL can vary considerably. That may seem high, but at the 6 month mark I had almost 10K miles.

Top Top WILL C, CA

TWO ELECTRIC CARS (ONE VOLT, ONE LEAF), TWO 220 CHARGERS IN OUR DRIVEWAY,

one shared LA DWP meter that is billed separately from our other electricity: $40/month. That's $20 per car.

Top Top DAVID M, FL

WE DON'T HAVE A SEPARATE METER.

Our rates went up the same month as we leased. I'm figuring around $25 increase based on our kWh usage from CARWINGS®[*] vs. what used to be $200 in gas.

Top Top BRYCE N, OR

WE GOT TWO EVS LAST OCTOBER AND A BLINK L2 INSTALLED SHORTLY AFTERWARD.

We use between 250 and 600 kWh per month at home, averaging around 450 kWh or $50 per month for the two cars. Our electricity is about 11 cents per kWh for "renewable" energy. For the same routine with gas cars, we would pay about 4 times that price for fuel.

Top Top WARREN R, WA

MY BILL WENT UP A FEW DOLLARS BUT NOTHING LIKE I WAS SPENDING ON GASOLINE

plus I'm about to go 100 percent solar on my roof so $0.00 in electrical bills.

Top Top JEANNE H, TX

OUR ELECTRIC BILL WENT UP NEGLIGIBLY,

as it takes only $2.50 to totally charge and I do so 1-2 times a week.

MY BILL HAS NOT CHANGED.

Having an EV gave me access to super off-peak pricing @4.2 cts/kwh as part of a pilot program from my local utility.

I CHARGE AT WORK, SO IT HASN'T CHANGED MUCH.

I occasionally charge on weekends, so probably only a few $s per month I actually spend.
