Electric cars are highly sought-after in urban areas, particularly in large cities like Nice. It's a low-cost way to get around every day, while contributing to a greener environment. For longer journeys, we recommend you take a look at the electric cars with the greatest range.

  • Pariswith sales up 4.60%;
  • Bouches-du-Rhône, with an increase of 3.75% ;

For this reason, Beev has compiled a list of the best charging station installers in the Alpes-Maritimes region.

Nice charging station: Installing your own charging station

How to install a charging station vary according to the location of the work to be carried out. There are 4 types of installation, described below.

In the house

In condominiums

In the company

In public establishments

Put simply: safety and efficiency.

We often make the analogy of cell phones to electric vehicles, which need to be charged every day. It's more complex: it depends on your driving habits. If you don't drive much, you won't need to recharge your vehicle every day. If you drive a lot, your electric car will need to be recharged almost daily.

In both cases, we strongly advise you to install a charging station.

The network of public charging stations in Nice is quite extensive, but if you want peace of mind, it pays to install a charging station at home or at work. That way, you won't have to constantly visit public charging stations at random. 

The advantages of installing an individual terminal

  • Ecological
  • Economical 
  • Technical

What's more, when businesses and shops are well equipped with charging stations, they attract more customers by providing this extra convenience. In turn, they prolong the time visitors spend in these places.

They also make everyday life easier for their employees, who no longer have to worry about recharging their vehicles.

The different types of recharging: Which type of terminal to choose?

So you've decided to install a charging station? Congratulations! Now all you have to do is choose the charging station that's right for you.

The type of recharging system you choose will depend on the battery of your electric vehicle. Vehicles with larger batteries and longer range will logically require longer charging times.

Secondly, the power of the charging point that you choose will play a vital role in the recharging charging time. We're talking about :

  • Slow load - 3 kW
  • Normal load - 7 kW
  • Accelerated charging - 22 kW

Good to know: Fast-charging charges of over 50 kW are only available on freeways.

 

For home or workplace charging, we recommend installing these two charging infrastructures:

  • Wall socket: For enhanced recharging compared with a conventional household socket. The WallBox can be mounted on a wall, in your garage for example. This type of recharging provides a slow charge power of 3 kW, lasting from 8h to 13h.
  • Charging station: Allows higher-power recharging, can be installed in your private parking lot, and is also very efficient if you share the charging station with other people. It offers a slow charge of 7 kW (single-phase installation), then from 9 kW to 22 kW (three-phase installation), for a recharge lasting from 5h to 7h.

How to choose the right charging station installer in Nice?

The following criteria must be taken into account when choosing an installer:

  • Certified professionals (IRVE): The installer who installs your charging station must be certified (IRVE certification) to ensure proper installation and avoid problems. This is a sine quanon condition for receiving certain grants, but also for your insurer (given the changes that will take place at your home or place of work).
  • Compliance with installation laws : As with any work on your home, the installation of a charging station is subject to standards and requirements that must be respected. If you don't, not only will the warranty on the device be void in the event of a problem, but you'll probably also have problems with your charging station.
  • A responsive and available company: When you make a purchase like this, it's normal to have questions. A legitimate company will not only have plenty of information available on its website, but will also know how to answer the ones you ask. If a company dodges questions and answers only that it knows what it's doing... run, it's probably not certified to do the job.
  • Be transparent: Somewhat related to the previous point, you'll know you're dealing with a good company if it's transparent. In other words, they explain the process from A to Z, from quotation to installation to after-sales service. The company will provide you with full details of your purchase and its warranty, and will be on hand in the event of any post-installation problems.

Help with installing a charging station in Nice

To help finance the equipment needed for electric vehicles, the French government offers grants for the purchase of charging stations . Some of these subsidies are available throughout France, while others are specific to each region or town.

Unfortunately, there is no specific assistance available in the Nice region for the installation of your charging station.

Tax credit

30% tax credit - for Wallbox installation in single-family homes only.

Ecological transition

The amount of the tax credit for the installation of an electric vehicle charging station is :

  • 500 per charging system for a connected terminal
  • 300 € per charging system for a non-connected terminal, with or without load shedding

Good to know: Advenir is opening a grant to help automotive service professionals install electric charging stations, in collaboration with Mobilians, an employers' organization. In fact, we have an article dealing with this very subject, on subsidies for the installation of charging stations. We invite you to consult it for more information.
