The costs of a ground rod
The costs of the earthing procedure vary. The cost of an earth rod depends among other things on the place where the earth stake has to be driven, at what depth it has to be driven and what the thickness of the earth stake has to be. If the subsoil is hard and the place where the earthing point has to be driven is difficult to reach, the costs will increase. This is also the case when the earthing rod has to be driven deeper into the ground.
The cost of the copper earth pin with fittings, wire and installation in the meter cupboard including the earth leakage protection is on average € 150 including VAT.
