Do You Need Licensed Electricians to Install Your EV Charger?
Even though the installation process sounds pretty easy and it might make you consider installing it yourself, you shouldn’t. There are electrical connections involved and you have to connect to the main supply so it can be very dangerous. If you leave the whole process to us, it’s much safer for you and your job will get done smoothly.
We have experienced professionals who will do it all for you, without any hassle. With their expertise, they can also help solve any unprecedented issues that might arise with your installation. Since each house is wired differently, sometimes issues can occur.
What EV Charger Options Do You Have?
When it comes to installing an EV charger, we offer two kinds of options. You can either get a Tethered Charger or a Universal one. Tethered charges will give you a Type 1 cable or a Type 2 cable. You can choose which one you want according to the requirements of your EV.
The Universal charger on the other hand comes without a connected charging cable. This means you can add whichever kind of charging cable you want at checkout. You can also add accessories to it.
What Can You Do to Prepare for the Installation Process?
The more prepared you are for the installation, the less time it will take. Try to clean up around the area of your main electricity supply (including the cable run-route). This way we won’t need to waste any extra timing on cleaning. Try to ensure that we can get easy access. And keep your WiFi password ready, in case you’ve forgotten it.
A good WiFi connection is necessary for the charger. See if it gets coverage at the location you want to install your charger. If not, you can get a 3G or 4G sim.
This is where the password will come in handy. Connecting your charger to your WiFi makes it easier to automatically update the software and also get reports on your usage statistics.
You can also get certain issues fixed through remote diagnostics if you have your WiFi connection. Plus, you’ll get access to any new features that become available when you use the charger with its app.
Unless you own your home, you’re going to talk things over with your landlord. See if you have permission. And if you want you can even apply for the OLEV Grant so that you can reduce your costs up to about 350 pounds.
Also, remember to check whether your home is suitable for a charging station. You should have dedicated off-street parking. If you’re well prepared, the process should be done within 2 hours or even less.
How Much Will It Cost You?
The total cost of the installation process can vary depending on your location and wiring. Plus you’re also going to consider the price of the charger itself. To give you an estimate a 7kW Pod Point Solo Smart Charger costs about 549 pounds or higher. The 7kW wattage is pretty standard. Total installation costs can vary from anywhere from 600 to 1500 pounds.
Price estimates vary so much because requirements will greatly vary at different locations and houses. Also keep in mind, the higher your output power for your charging station, the more expensive your total costs will be. This is why it’s a good idea to apply early for a grant. Any money you save is a great help. You can get a much more accurate estimate, once you call us.
