Why Go Electric?

Electric vehicles are becoming an increasingly prominent fixture in our transport system. The national grid have consistently increased their expectations for the number of electric vehicles on our roads each year, they now anticipate up to 36 million EVs on UK roads by 2040.

What are the benefits of installing an Electric Vehicle (EV) car charging point?

  • A home EV charging point can charge your car between 1-7 hours.
  • Home charging points can be better for battery life.
  • Reduce your carbon footprint.

If you are looking to install an Electric Vehicle (EV) charging point in your home, it couldn’t be easier with Holloway Electrical, we will take you through the process from start to finish.

EV Charging At Home

As long as you have off-street parking, you can charge your electric car at home by having a dedicated home charger installed. This is usually the most convenient place to charge, particularly when you can plug-in overnight.

A dedicated home charging point will give you the fastest possible charging speeds, typically between 10 and 30 miles of range per hour plugged in. This will depend on the make and model of your vehicle and chargind point being installed.

It will have built-in safety features and, if it’s Wi-Fi enabled, access to additional smart features like energy monitoring and over-the-air software updates. Most home chargers have a cable attached, which you typically just plug in to your vehicle to start charging.
Home chargers are also available with a universal ‘Type 2’ socket that accepts a separate cable and plugs into your car in the same way.
These separate cables are often provided by the vehicle manufacturer but if you didn’t receive one or need a spare, you can purchase them when ordering your home charger. Electric cars can also be plugged into a standard 3-pin plug at home, however it takes longer to charge and the sockets do not have the required safety features of a dedicated charger, therefore it is not considered best practice.
