Where you are going to install your EV home charger.

You’ll need access to off road parking and the cable must not cross a public footpath. Standard installation is included with the cost of your EV home charger and will include all parts and labour such as all required fittings and cables.

What type of EV home charger do I need?

You need to make sure you have enough charge to complete your journeys, as a guide our 7.4Kw charger takes just 7 hours for a full charge*. The type of plug you need, which for most electric cars will be Type 1 or Type 2 but you can find this out from the manufacturer.

EV Charger Installation

With our smart EV charger, the cost of a standard installation* is included in the cost of the charger. Office for Low Emission (OLEV) approved qualified installers will come to your house at a time that suits you.
