Residential Installation

Installing an EV charging station is not as expensive as you may think. In the UK installation of a residential wall mounted station at an off-street location could cost up-to £700 – but the government provides an OLEV grant of £500 for car charging points for electric and plug-in vehicles purchased after 1 April 2015. So home users can expect to pay an average of £200 for one EV charging point.*

Installation should be undertaken by a qualified electrician or recommended installer.

Residential installation

The installer performs an audit of your home's electrical installation, which must be able to withstand the power inrush during charging. The electrical switchboard is arranged to receive the appropriate protective devices in accordance with electrical regulations.

Installing the charging point should take under an hour by a single technician, is able to be wired from the top, bottom or back and can be commissioned immediately.

We have access to the residential charging solutions of both Schneider and EO. We selected Schneider and EO as EV charging partners because of their high quality products, high service levels, innovation, scalability and passion for EV charging. All products come with a three year warranty as standard.

Schneider Electric's EVLink Wallbox range offers a robust, high quality and great looking product as a socket or with cable solution.

EO have two residential products: the EO Basic and the EO Mini. The latter is the smallest fast charger on the market and can be ordered in a variety of colours.

All the product above are eligible for the OLEV Home Charge Grant (£500).

*The £500 OLEV grant can only be collected by an OLEV qualified installer
