Electric Vehicle Charging Points

We have a long list of satisfied customers that have asked us to install an exterior or interior charging point for their vehicle.

We conduct a site assessment for every potential installation at your home or premises to ensure the highest level of safety can be achieved and to provide an accurate price.

Our assessment and quote are provided free of charge.

Not only have we completed the relevant training to be competent at installing car charging points, but we also have the benefit of having installed a large number of them in and around the East Devon area.

EV Chargers FAQ

Installation: Is it a big job?

It depends. That's why we conduct on a site visit. Sometimes there might be issues with your existing electrical installation that need solving first, or you may want your charger located a long way from the supply for example. In some cases, installation is quick and easy, in others, less so. The important thing is to adhere to the safety regulations.

Which cars do you install points for?

All of them. There are mostly standard cables, sockets and plugs but there are variations. The vast majority of vehicle manufacturers use a standard known as 'Mode 3 Charging' and this applies to nearly all brands of car. We have installed charging points for Tesla, Porsche, Nissan, Volkswagen to name a few.

Are there Grants available?

Yes. The OLEV grant scheme. You can find out more information on gov.uk.

Ian is happy to answer any other questions you might have and to visit your property or business premises in order to provide a quotation for installing an electric car charging point.

Why Shouldn't I just plugin an extension lead?

There are really good reasons for avoiding this if at all possible.

Whilst it's possible to charge your car from a 13 amp domestic socket, it will take a long time to charge your car. A Mode 3 charging point typically delivers 16 to 40 amps, but crucially, they must be installed on a dedicated circuit and are built to operate under this sustained load over a long period of time. An extension lead under continuous 13 amp load is a potential fire hazard at a time when you will probably be sleeping.

Mode 3 chargers also automatically disconnect the supply when charging is complete.

We only fit products that comply with the latest safety standards and regulations much like these ROLEC products pictured below:
