HOME CHARGING ELECTRIC VEHICLE POINTS
INSTALLATION POINT - ELECTRIC VEHICLE
A personal charge point for your home makes charging your electric vehicle faster, safer and more convenient. No more extension leads, worrying about plug connections outside or wondering whether you are overloading your home’s electrical supply.
Cawoods will advise you on the type and positioning of your charge point and install a dedicated electrical circuit, as well as discussing any additional sockets you may want to have installed.
EV HOME CHARGE SCHEME
The Electric Vehicle Home Charge Scheme (EHVS) provides grant funding of up to 75% towards the cost of installing electric vehicle charge points at domestic properties across the UK up t a maximum of £350 including VAT.
From 1st July 2019, the EHVS will only support smart charge points as announced in December 2018. As OLEV certified installers we can offer advice and help you with your application. On top of the EVHS, the Energy Saving Trust is offering a further £300 grant towards the installation of electric vehicle charge points, reducing the cost dramatically.
SOLAR PV INTEGRATION
Driving an electric car that is charged by your solar panels is an excellent way to ensure your transportation is both cost-efficient and emissions-free.
Many EV owners think of the purchasing a solar system as pre-buying their fuel for the next few years – at a cost that is very quickly repaid.
With rising energy costs and the ever increasing prices of public charge points, it makes perfect sense to charge your vehicle at home for free. A typical 4kWp residential solar PV system will produce enough energy to power both your home and charge your electric car.
