How does EV charger installation work?

The process starts by measuring your existing electrical panel and determining where you need to place the new EV charger. Then, we’ll make sure that everything is properly grounded before beginning any wiring. Once the wires are connected, we’ll test the system to make sure that it works correctly. Finally, we’ll add a cover plate to protect your investment from the elements.

How to charge your electric car at home?

You can charge your electric car at home, at work, or a public charging station.

The best option is to use a dedicated home EV charger instead of a regular domestic 3 pin socket. Chargers that are designed specifically for electric vehicles typically deliver around 7kW. The maximum current a standard domestic 3-pin socket can draw is 2.3kW, which is limited to 10A by most vehicle manufacturers. Therefore, a 7kW home charger can deliver approximately three times more power at faster charge speed than a domestic outlet.

Benefits of a Home EV Charger

Home EV chargers offer several benefits over traditional outlets. Some of them are:

Convenience

Charging your electric car at home means that drivers don’t have to worry about finding a suitable charging location when they need one. You can also choose how long you want to charge your car. Home EV chargers are also much faster than public chargers. So, practically, there’s no wait time. All you have to do is plug in your charger overnight, and you’re good to go in the morning.

Increase your home's value

Installing an EV home charging point in domestic properties or commercial properties increases their value. Since electric vehicles are already widespread, someone looking for a new home may be really attracted to one with an existing charge point.

Reduce carbon emissions

By installing an EV charger, you reduce the amount of CO2 emitted into the atmosphere.

Energy Savings

Your electric car uses less fuel than conventional cars. This means that you save money on gas every month.

Tethered and socketed chargers: What's the difference?

Tethered charge points have a longer cable than socketed ones and are generally used for recharging heavy-duty vehicles like trucks and buses, while socketed chargers are designed to fit into standard sockets. They’re both great options, though, and you’ll find that most EV models coming out now support both types.

Most new EVs come with a type 2 connector, but it’s always worth checking before buying one. If you plan on connecting multiple cars to the same charger, make sure you check what the connectors look like before spending money on one. You don’t want to buy something that doesn’t work with the rest of your setup.

Socketed charge points are dedicated charging stations that charge any vehicle with a fast charging cable, and they’re cheaper than tethered units. If you already have one, you might as well use it instead of buying another one.

Frequently asked questions

Is there an EV charge point grant from the government?

Yes, you may be eligible for funding up to 75% of the cost of installing EV charge points at residential properties in the UK. There is also a workplace charge scheme available.  Please reach out to us to learn more.

How long does it take to charge an EV car?

Battery size and charging point speed affect charge time. With a 7 kW charging point, a typical electric car (60 kWh battery) takes just under 8 hours to charge from empty to full.

Do I have to unplug once the battery is full?

No, the charging will automatically stop.

Can I use my existing power supply?

Yes, you can connect your existing power supply to the charging point. It will not interfere with the charging process.

Are there any safety precautions I should consider?

Safety is important to us. All of our installations meet British Standard BS EN 61340-1:2007 requirements. This means that the equipment meets or exceeds the relevant standards for safe operation. The equipment must comply with the relevant regulations and codes of practice.

What is the cost of installation?

Installation costs and prices for home EV charging points range between £8,00 and £1,000. However, you don’t have to bear the entire cost because of government grants. The cost may be similar for businesses. Please get in touch with us for more information.
