FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Rather than using non-renewable energy sources such as petrol and diesel, electric cars use only electric. Instead of going to a fuel station to fill up your car, you plug it into a charging point at your own home or place of work.  In most cases, you leave it charging overnight ready to go the next day.  If you are planning a long journey, service stations also have charging points that you are able to use which have a rapid charging facility.  Even public car parks have charger if you need it.

IS IT EXPENSIVE TO CHARGE?

The cost of charging your car is simply the cost of using your electricity at home.  Some electricity providers offer a cheaper night time standard rate-be sure to check this with your own supplier.

WHAT CHARGER WILL I NEED?

There are different types of chargers available that also vary in price. Some vehicles need particular chargers and you will be advised of this when we come to visit your property.
1. Rapid chargers.  These are often found in service stations/car parks etc.
2. Fast chargers.  Most car chargers will fall into this bracket which is ideal for an overnight charge at you home.
3. Slow chargers. A minority of cars can be charged with a slow charger.

HOW MUCH IS IT TO INSTALL?

The cost of installation varies depending on the charger you select.  More expensive chargers will charge your vehicle quicker.  It also depends where at your home/workplace your charger is going to be installed.

The government grant is also available to qualifying customers for up to £350 off per charger.  See Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme: guidance for customers - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)  for more information.
