Wallbox funding from KfW – subsidy of up to 900 euros
When it comes to wallbox questions about private funding, the first answer is often the grant from KfW. This is financed by funds from the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure. Important here:
The grant can be applied for by owners, homeowners associations, landlords and tenants. The grant must be applied for and approved before buying and installing a wallbox. If this is not the case, funding is no longer possible. The funding amount is set at 900 euros per charging point. This means that several charging points can be subsidized with 900 each, e.g. B. in a garage with several parking spaces and charging points in a private residential complex. If the costs for the wallbox and the charging station are less than 900, there is no funding option from KfW.

The wallbox does not have to be used smartly, but with a view to the future it has to be optionally intelligently operated and already have the function. Electrical connection: If users want a subsidy, the electricity must have been generated from 100 percent renewable energy. Permissible is e.g. B. also self-generated electricity through a photovoltaic system or en green electricity tariff.Installation by an electrician: A wallbox, like an electric stove, must be connected to a 400 volt high voltage connection.
