EV Charging

EV Charging (electric vehicle charging point installation) At Home

If you are thinking about making the switch to using an electrical vehicle (EV) then it is important to ensure that you have everything in place to be able to charge if from your Norwich property.

Whilst an EV can be charged using a specialist home charger that has a 3 pin plug attached, this should only really be done as an action of last resort. This is because it takes longer and is not as safe as using a home charging point.

Installing A Home Charging Point In Old Lakenham

An EV home charging point should only ever be installed by a qualified electrician with the necessary skills and experience of working with this relatively new technology. The process involves mounting the charging point onto either a garage or exterior wall that is within close proximity of where you park your EV so that it can be connected safely. Although all installations are different, it typically takes about 3 hours to install a home charging point.

Managing The Load

It will come as no surprise that charging an EV at home puts a greater load on the electricity supply to the property. In some instances, it can actually damage the main fuse board. In order to stop this from happening a home charging point balances the power out with the rest of the property – something that doesn’t happen when using a 3 pin plug charger.
