EV Charging

We are fully qualified EV charging installers and provide a range of home EV charge points. We are approved & certified installers of Pod Point, EO & OHME.

We’re also approved installers of the government grant scheme OZEV (office for zero emission vehicles) The OZEV EV chargepoint grant provides up to £350 off the cost of purchasing and installing a home charging point. You can only claim one chargepoint per eligible vehicle and household. The grant is available for people who live in a rented property or own a flat with dedicated off-street parking. If eligible for the grant you simply fill out a simple form and we do the rest and the grant will be deducted from your final invoice.

So once you have decided if an EV charger is for you, here’s what happens next…

Choose your charger

We will show you the recommended Electric Vehicle chargers based on your answers you gave us.


Fix to a wall

Our installer will arrive at your selected time. We’ll then install your charger on a brick or plaster wall that’s connected to your property.


Run the cable

Cable is run from the wall mounted position of your charger to your electricity meter position which should be no more than 10m1.


Tidying up

The cable to the charge point is neatly clipped flush to the wall or in conduit/trunking. We’ll tidy up and take all the rubbish away.


Register your guarantee

Once the installation is complete, we will register your parts and labour guarantee with the manufacturer.


Here’s a few frequently asked questions:

How does Electric Vehicle Charging  (EV) work?

The Electric Vehicle chargers that we install work by providing Fast Charging capability to your home which is up to 4 times quicker than the output from your standard plug sockets.

The chargers also provide you with the essential overload and fault current protection built-in, which your standard plug sockets do not provide.

What does kW mean?

It means kilowatt. This is the unit of measurement Electric Vehicle chargers are sized by. The higher the kW, the quicker you car will charge.

A 7.2kW charger will charge your Vehicle twice as quickly as a 3.6kW one. The onboard computer built into cars is clever, and will restrict your charger’s output if your vehicle doesn’t support that level of power output. So you should always buy the highest kW option where possible.

How do I choose which EV charger to buy?

We will show you the recommended Electric Vehicle chargers based on your answers you gave us.

 Where possible, we recommend choosing a higher power output charger, as your Vehicle will automatically regulate the power it needs, and you’ll then be future-proofing your installation for your next Vehicle.

How much will it cost to run?

Based on a Electricity rate of 14p per kWh, it would cost around £8 to fully charge a 60kWh Electric car. This would give around 200 miles of range.

Why does my EV charger need WI-FI?

As most EV chargers are smart enabled you will need to ensure you can detect and connect to your Wi-Fi network at the installation point; you can test this beforehand through your mobile phone. If you cannot connect to your Wi-Fi network you should consider a Wi-Fi booster or an alternative installation location. Once installed, you will then control your smart EV charger through its associated partner app to use the cheapest and greenest electricity available (depending on your energy tariff).


Interesting facts:

The time it takes to charge an electric car can be as little as 30 minutes or more than 12 hours. This depends on the size of the battery and the speed of the charging point.

  • A typical electric car (60kWh battery) takes just under 8 hours to charge from empty-to-full with a 7kW charging point.
  • Most drivers top up charge rather than waiting for their battery to recharge from empty-to-full.
  • For many electric cars, you can add up to 100 miles of range in ~35 minutes with a 50kW rapid charger.
  • The bigger your car’s battery and the slower the charging point, the longer it takes to charge from empty to full.

    Factors that affect charging speed

    There are 5 main factors that affect the time it takes to charge an electric vehicle.

    • Size of battery: The bigger your vehicle’s battery capacity (measured in kWh), the longer it will take to charge.
    • State of battery (empty vs. full): If you are charging from empty, it will take longer to charge than if you are topping up from 50%.
    • Max charging rate of vehicle: You can only charge a vehicle’s battery at the maximum charge rate the vehicle can accept. For example; if your vehicle’s max charge rate is 7kW, you won’t charge any faster by using a 22kW chargepoint.
    • Max charging rate of chargepoint: The time it takes to charge will also be limited by the max charging rate of the chargepoint you are using. For example; even if your vehicle can charge at 11kW, it will only charge at 7kW on a 7kW chargepoint.
    • Environmental factors: A colder ambient temperature can make it take slightly longer to charge, particularly when using a rapid charger. Colder temperatures also mean vehicles are less efficient, so less miles are added per time charging.
