Car Charging Points
Much of the charging of your car will be done at home, as this is where it will be cheapest. It is essential that you choose the right charger for your home. We have a wide range of car charging points available and offer install-only packages. As a company, we have the necessary experience and knowledge to carry out a safe and efficient installation. They have fixed pricing for a standard install.
We offer a wide range of charge points from high-quality manufacturers. They are reliable, stylish, competitively priced and coveres by a 3-year manufacturer warranty. We keep up to date with all the latest training so you can rest assured we are the right company for the job.
The cost of a car charging point installation will be decided by the factors such as how many meters the charger is going from the main head. How much work involves such as lifting floorboards or how many walls we are going through? The charger you choose will also have a bearing on the cost as all chargers are different prices, some chargers do not have pen fault so this will have to be added as an extra.
Car charging points survey and quote
Once you have made an enquiry one of the team will be in contact to do a full site survey. This will be a mobile survey unless it is a tricky install, then one of the team will be out to survey the job in person. We will then provide a fixed quote to you, once acceptance of the quote we will then do a DNO notice and gain permission for installations. We will then get the charger shipping to your address and arrange an installation date that suits us both.
There is government funding available for landlords, flat owners and people living in rental accommodation which is now called the EV Charge Point Grant – please call us for guidance if you think you are eligible.
Government-funded grants can provide 75% towards the cost of your charge point, up to a maximum of £350.
COST OF EV CHARGING
1. Cost of an installation will depend on a few factors.
2. Which EV charging unit is chosen.
3. How far the cable run will be.
4. How much work is involved, if floor boards need to be lifted.
5. How many walls it needs to go through.
6. If it is tethered or untethered.
Tethered or Untethered?
This is a question we get asked all the time. A lot of people do not realize when they lease an EV, The cable does not come as standard. So, make sure you check with the car dealership what include in the package.
The benefits of having a tethered cable are that it cannot be lost and is harder to steal. Some factors to consider are that it cannot be taken with you meaning you will need a separate cable if you are planning on charging when you are mobile.
However, Tethered are more likely to get run over or be damaged. Please think about these factors when choosing the best car charging points for you.
Here at EVC we also offer battery storage solutions. Battery storage can use to offset the cost of electricity by charging at night when the cost of electricity is cheaper.
There are many overnight tariffs available on the market now. This can use along with a solar system to maximise cost savings from the renewables revolution.
It can also fix with an EPS(emergency power system) which can use to run essential circuits while the power is out. We offer supply and fit and install only, to find out more please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
