Electric Vehicle Charging

About Electric Vehicle Charging

An electric car can be charged at home, at work, or a public charging point. You can charge your vehicle at home by using a regular domestic 3-pin socket, however, a dedicated home EV charger is the better option by far.

Dedicated EV home chargers typically deliver around 7kW of power. In contrast, most vehicle manufacturers limit the current drawn from a standard domestic 3-pin socket to 10A or less, which equates to a maximum of 2.3kW. A 7kW home charger, therefore, delivers approximately three times as much power and is approximately three times as fast as using a domestic socket.

Charging points at work help make electric cars viable for commuters who live further away from their homes. If your work doesn't have an electric vehicle charge point installed, it could take advantage of the Government's Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS).

Public EV chargers can be found at service stations, car parks, supermarkets, cinemas, and even on the side of the road. The network of public chargers continues to grow at an incredible rate.
