Frequently Asked Questions
Below you will find a series of FAQs addressing some of the most common questions we receive from our visitors about how our service works and the process of fitting an EV charger at their property.
Why Pay to Install an EV Charger at My Home?
The growing interest in electric and hybrid vehicles has meant that you can often find EV chargers at service stations, petrol stations and shopping centres – but if your car needs several hours to reach a full charge, this is far from ideal!
Most people who drive electric cars prefer a charging station at home, often fitted inside a garage or alongside a driveway, to ensure they can charge the vehicle overnight without any inconvenience.
There are roughly 30,000 UK EV charge points, but these vary in speed, with a proportion providing slow charges that are unsuitable if you are in a hurry. Paying for a third-party fast charging station is also usually far more expensive than charging your car at home!
What Qualifications Should I Look for From an EV Charger Installer?
EV chargers are electrical devices and should only be fitted by properly qualified electricians or contractors with the appropriate certification. Most insurers require EV charge installations at a private home to be carried out by a professional with an Electric Installation Certificate (EIC).
Some firms also provide EV charge installations with certification from a competent electrician to check all the connections and components are safe.
Do I Need Planning Permission to Install an EV Charge?
Planning rules vary between regions, but normally you wouldn’t need formal approval to fit a wall-mounted EV charger. If the charger is going to be installed on a wall where you park off the street, it is on private property, and planning rules don't generally apply.
However, if you wanted to install an EV charger elsewhere, your local planning office might need to approve this, so it’s worth verifying before you go ahead.
Can I Charge an Electric Vehicle from a Standard Plug Socket?
In a pinch, you might get away with charging your electric car from a 13-amp plug – but it is not recommended unless in an emergency.
The power flow to an electric vehicle battery is much larger than a standard home appliance, and the car will take several hours to charge, if at all.
An EV charger is a far better solution and will ensure your car is charged faster, more efficiently, and at a lower cost.
Can I Fit an EV Charger Myself?
No – handling electrical currents without the right expertise or training is extremely dangerous and could even be fatal.
Unless you are a qualified electrician, you should never attempt to install an EV charger anywhere on your property.
What Does it Cost to Charge an EV Away from Home?
Exact pricing varies, but most supermarkets will charge different rates for fast and slow EV charging. For example, you might pay £0.28 per kWh for a slow 7kW connection and up to £0.50 per kWh for a speedy 50 kW rapid charger.
In contrast, most homeowners pay around £0.19 per kWh for a home charger, so the cost saving is significant and will increase over time.
