Prospective electric car owners gotta know, “Will my electric bill go through the roof when I charge at home?” After all, you’re plugging a battery literally the size of a Volkswagen into your house, so it must make the electric meter spin like when Clark Griswold plugged in a million strands of Christmas lights, right?

Well, an EV can become one of the power-hungriest things attached to your house, but don’t forget that your gasoline budget will probably go down at least as much, and possibly considerably more. How much extra an electric vehicle will increase your electric bill depends on many factors, but fear not: It’s easily determined and likely won’t result in the doubling or tripling of the average electric bill.
