More and more drivers are switching to electric vehicles (EV) and it’s easy to see why. No more filling up. No more carbon emissions. A cleaner, more efficient way to drive.
The number of electric cars registered in the UK rose from 3,500 in 2013 to 85,000 in early 2017. During a similar period the number of EV charging locations in the UK has increased from a few hundred to 4,200. As the EV infrastructure builds, the environmental and financial benefits of plug-in cars – not just the estimated 80% savings on fuel costs but the government grants on new purchases – make it a realistic alternative for drivers.
Schneider has established itself as a leading provider of EV charging solutions, developing a range of 230V charging stations for installation in residential, commercial, retail and leisure sites. The EV charging station you require will depend on a number of factors, principally determined by the make and model of your vehicle.
However, there may be other issues to consider. Do you have more than one vehicle to charge? How fast do you want to be able to charge? Will your charging station be in a public location? Use this handy tool to find out what kind of EV charging station you need.
