Why install a home charger?

An electric car's charging speed is measured in kilowatt (kW). The UK network of charging facilities is constantly growing to meet the growing popularity of electric cars and some public charging points provide 100 kW "rapid-charging" output. 

 

At home, your electric vehicle charging point can usually deliver 7kW whereas a regular three-pin socket can only provide up to 2.3kW. Having a home charger will provide much faster charging for your vehicle

Charge prices 

 

Charging your electric vehicle at home is particularly economical. This translates in a cost per mile that is far less than that of a conventional petrol or diesel car. What's more, you can reduce costs further when opting for a dedicated EV energy tariff. These tariffs usually offer reduced pricing for overnight, off-peak charging.

what's included in a standard installation?

The standard installation package covers the majority of homes in the
UK. If you aren't sure whether you come under our standard installation scheme simply get in touch with one of EO's Home Install experts at install@eocharging.com - they'll be happy to advise the best solution for your installation.

  • Routing of the cable through a single wall of up to half a metre thickness.
  • Up to 15 metres of cable, run and neatly clipped to the wall between the consumer unit and the charge point (up to a height of 1.8m).
  • All electrical connections at the origin of the supply and charger.
  • Supply and installation of a Garo device with built in RCBO or equivalent.
