Electric Vehichle Charging Points
As we move into a more eco friendly future, EV charge points are to be considered for both your home and your business. Here at Standish Energy, we fit these units and can also help with the application for the government grants that are on offer.
Installing a home electric car charger
Getting a charger installed on your property is safer and charges up to 2.5x faster than with a 3 pin plug. It’s just as quick, or quicker than some public charging points, and there’s no having to wait around at a service station.
Home chargers are normally either 16-amps or 32-amps and can charge an electric vehicle from flat to full in 3.5 hours.
How much does it cost to charge an electric car at home?
The cost of home charging varies depending on your tariff (and, if on Economy 7, the time of day). An average electricity rate is 10p per kWh, meaning your car could cost as little as 2p per mile. You could make potentially huge savings on fuel – an estimated £1000 a year compared to petrol.
Can I get a grant for a home electric car charger?
There is a generous government grant for home charging points. The Office for Low Emission Vehicles gives eligible electric/hybrid car owners a grant of £500 towards purchase and installation.
If your electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle was bought from 1st April 2015 onwards and you have off-street parking, you will be eligible for the grant, providing you use an OLEV-approved installer. You can get one charging point installed per eligible vehicle and up to two per household. Most electric vehicles are eligible for the grant – you can check you qualify by calling one of our team and we will be happy to assist.
