How We Can Help?

Charging your electric car at home couldn’t be easier and more straightforward, as long as you have the appropriate equipment. Whilst you are relaxing with your family, watching television or asleep in your bed, your car can be charged safely and quickly, often using low cost electricity.
The majority of electric car manufacturers recommend that you do not use a standard 13 amp socket for charging your electric car at home for safety reasons. The ring main in a typical house or garage is not designed to take the constant load that an EV will draw, potentially creating a risk of fire or short circuits in other parts of you domestic wiring. If you use a standard 13 amp socket, the rate of charge will be severely restricted by the car manufacturer so that it may take up to 12 hours to fully charge the car. This time can be reduced to around 3 hours for a properly installed electric vehicle charging station, dependant on manufacturer and make and model of car.
While a domestic socket can be used, the industrial standard ‘Blue Commando’ connector is a weather-proof solution for outdoor charging, and able to carry a higher 16 amp current, which makes it a safer option.

What does it cost to charge an EV?

Each recharge will cost approximately £2.50 to £3. If you cover an average of 10,000 miles per year, this is equivalent to between £250 and £300 per year in electricity costs. In practice, if charging is carried out overnight on reduced rates, this cost could be substantially less. Using public charging points is often free, at least while the Government and local authorities are trying to promote and incentivise the use of EV's.
