Renewable Energy EV Charging

EV charging solutions

Full-service EV charging installation – as well as charging maintenance and management solutions – for domestic, commercial and fleet vehicles.

Make sure your business, your premises and your homes are ready for the rise of greener driving.

Homeowners, housing developers, fleet managers and all businesses in general need to plan now for the fundamental shift towards electric vehicles, and the increasing numbers on our roads. Domestic and commercial charging stations must be user friendly, easy to install and of course safe to supply higher voltages.

Installing an EV charger safely requires expert knowledge of both your building’s electrical system and the charger itself. Some of the faster rapid charging stations can involve dangerously high voltages, requiring surge and overload protection to protect the equipment, the vehicle and the user. To mitigate risk, it’s vital to choose a specialist EV charger installer to ensure the safety and longevity of your station.

Why go electric at your residential or commercial property?

No new petrol or diesel powered vehicles will be available for sale in the UK from 2025, and the government has made EV charging points mandatory for new-build residential and commercial units from the same year. This switch to cleaner, cheaper and more sustainable energy brings with it a number of benefits:

SAVING money
MEET environmental targets
FUTURE-PROOF your property
RENEWABLES assessment
MEET environmental targets

What our customers ask

Here’s just some of the questions that our customers ask – we’re sure you’ll have others. Please give us a call and we will be very happy to help.

How long will it take to install an EV charger?

Usually, installation takes around half a day in an average home. It might depend on how far your fuse box is from the charging point and if we need to run cables through/under rooms – in which case, we may need a little more time to complete.

What is ‘fast charging’?

This is an EV charging term used to describe chargers and/or vehicles whose charge capacity is between 7kW to 22kW. Depending on the size of the battery, it will take around eight hours to fully charge a typical battery electric vehicle (BEV). A 22kW charger is obviously the faster option, but they need a 3-phase connection, which is not often found in domestic properties.

What is ‘rapid charging’?

This is a higher capacity charging option available only in commercial scenarios. Capable of charging in a range of 43kW to 150kW, you will find rapid chargers at service stations, supermarket car parks and designated street charging points – but we also expect them to soon become common at garages and filling stations. 

Rapid chargers come in AC (alternating current) and DC (direct current). AC rapid chargers operate at 43kW, while DC rapid chargers are rated 50kW and upwards. Both types of unit will charge most EVs to 80% in approximately 30-60 minutes, depending on the capacity of the battery. We expect greater numbers of faster 120kW and 150kW rapid charging points to appear soon, so times will speed up accordingly.

What’s the difference between Type 1 and Type 2 chargers?

These are the most common domestic charging units, providing the connection between your power supply and your EV, and the one you need will depend on your vehicle. You’ll find that most Asian car brands (such as Nissan and Mitsubishi) use a Type 1 connector, which features a five-pin plug. However, most American and European manufacturers (like VW, Volvo, Renault, Mercedes, BMW and Audi) use a Type 2, which has a seven-pin plug connector. Type 2 seems to be becoming the most popular charging connector, so we may see the industry adopting this as standard over the course of time.

Will an electric car increase my electricity bill?

The short answer is yes, but this will be more than balanced by the money you are no longer spending on traditional petrol or diesel. As part of your regular household or business electricity use, the increase will not be too drastic, and you could take advantage of specialist electric car energy tariffs to help keep your costs lower.

Will EV chargers blow my fuse board?

EV chargers are designed to operate within normal domestic or business electricity charging capacity, so this should not be an issue. We will assess your electric system and supply thoroughly ahead of installation to make sure the charger is compatible with your property to avoid problems, and may in some cases recommend installing a 3.7kW charger instead of the usual 7.4kW, but this is rare.

Did you know?

Most organisations are eligible to apply for a Government grant scheme to help them and their employees with the cost of EV charging point installations.

  • OZEV Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS)
    A 75% grant up to the value of £350 is available for all employee home locations.
  • OZEV Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS)
    A 75% grant up to the value of £350 per charger is available for up to 40 charge points at commercial locations.

We are pleased to be an OZEV-approved installer of home car charging points, which means that eligible customers can access the government funded grant scheme for their EV charging port.
