Are you hoping to install an EV charging point at your residential or commercial property?

If you are based in the North West, we can take care of your EV charging point installation for you.

Across the United Kingdom, the number of people purchasing electric vehicles, including cars and vans, has risen considerably over the last few years.

According to the Government, this has seen almost 19,000 EV charging points installed in public places such as retail and commercial car parks.

With the Government recently announcing that they aim to ensure that all new cars and vans are electric by 2035, an influx in EV charging point installations is expected.

If you already own an electric vehicle, installing an EV charging point is highly recommended.

In order to provide you with further insight regarding our EV charging point installation, we have answered some of our most frequently asked questions below.

If you find that your questions remain unanswered, please feel free to contact us.

 

What Are The Benefits of Installing An EV Charging Point?

When considering whether or not to install an EV charging point, you will likely want to determine the benefits that come hand in hand with doing so. With this in mind, we have outlined just a few of the benefits of installing an EV charging point below.

First and foremost, a personal EV charging point can charge your electric vehicle more efficiently and quickly than a mains installation can. Usually, EV charging points can leave your vehicle fully charged within a few hours.

In addition, installing an EV charging point will reduce your outgoings. This is because using a public charging point will see you incur fees for every hour you charge your vehicle.

 

Are There Any Legal Requirements Associated With EV Charging Point Installations In Residential Areas?

If you are looking to install an EV charging point for your vehicle, you may find yourself wondering if there are any legal requirements associated with EV charging point installations.

If you are renting your property, you will be required to obtain permission from your landlord. We will need to confirm that you have this permission before carrying out the installation.

In contrast, if you are a home-owner, you do not need to seek planning permission to install an EV charging point.

You will also need to have dedicated off-street parking in order to have an EV charging point installed. Unfortunately, we cannot install EV charging points if you do not have a private garage or driveway.

In addition to the above, your EV charging point installation will need to comply with the 18th edition of the IET Wiring Regulations. Our electricians will ensure that your EV charging point installation complies with the regulations outlined by the IET.

Commercial EV Charging Point Installations

In addition to installing EV charging points at residential properties, we can also ensure that EV charging points are installed at commercial properties.

At present, various reports suggest that 80% of electric car charging is conducted at residential properties.

However, the Government has indicated that come 2025, commercial buildings with over 20 car parking spaces are to have at least one EV charging point installed.

As touched on above, EV charging point installations typically take a few hours when it comes to residential properties.

If you are hoping to install EV charging points to a commercial property, and require more than one EV charging points, installation may take slightly longer.

However, we will still endeavour to guarantee that your EV charging point installation is completed within a short time frame.
