Electric Vehicle Charging
Charge your electric car from the comfort of your own home.
With the rising numbers of electric vehicles in the UK the need for charging points at home is growing. Our electricians have undertaken the latest training and are qualified to carry out charge point installations to the highest standards. We can offer competitive prices to install a variety of charging points from approved manufacturers and have been directly approved by ROLEC and MYENERGI to install their products.
We are approved by the Office for Low Emissions Vehicles to offer charge point installations with up to a 75% saving to the homeowner for eligible vehicles.
Government Rebate Scheme
If you’re thinking about installing a charging point, you may not know that there is a government grant for electric vehicles that could save you money.
Provided by the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV), the grant is also known as the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) and provides up to 75% off the cost of purchasing & installing a home charging point up to a maximum payout of £500.
The scheme is available for most electric cars and plug-in hybrid cars, so long as certain criteria are met. The latest requirements to qualify for the scheme can be found here.
About EV Charging
Put simply, electric vehicles are powered by a battery instead of a traditional combustion engine. So in a sense, Electric Vehicle Charging is much the same as charging any other electronic equipment, such as a mobile phone or laptop.
However, due to the size of the battery in electric vehicles, charging will usually take a few hours, which is why having a charge point at home is so convenient.
Not only can you charge your car at a time that suits you but you can also take advantage of cheaper electricity during off-peak hours.
Additionally, if you have a solar PV system installed on your property then certain chargers allow you to charge your car solely from the electricity you have generated yourself: effectively giving you a free charge and therefore free travel!
Quality workmanship and excellent customer service are fundamental in all that we do at TDJ Electrical, and the needs of our clients are our highest priority.
