The cost of installing a single 50kW rapid charging point depends very much on the site. This is because the works required vary, particularly in relation to providing the power supply. A more costly single 50kW rapid charge point will include additional civil engineering works such as new kerb build-outs, drainage works and complex power connections.

The installation costs supported by TfL are for enabling works and power connections. The actual installation and ongoing maintenance cost is borne by the operator for every site. 

Typically, the enabling works will have a cost range of £10k - £20k. The power connections will similarly range from £10k - £20k.
