ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGERS FOR YOUR HOME

There are a lot of factors to be considered when choosing your Electric Vehicle Charger; charge rate, safety, security, aesthetics, budget, connection type, smart, solar powered and installation method. At Voltix we can run through a range of charge point brands and help you decide the right product for you.

Also, with the OLEV home charge scheme you could be eligible for up to £1000 OFF (£500 per charge point up to 2 cars).

 

FAQ’s

Yes most electric vehicles in the UK are moving to a Type 2 charger. There are only a few models left that use a type 1 (Mitsubishi Outlander and the old Nissan Leaf). The aim is that type 2 becomes the universal fit for all electric vehicles. Voltix can can confirm what plug type your car is when placing your order.

EV-Plug-Types

Tethered means that the charger has a cable permanently connected ready to plug in to your car. This is the most popular option for home. Untethered means that you need to provide the cable the connects your electric vehicle to the charger.

If you’d like to take advantage of the grant, Voltix can place the grant application for you giving you the instant £500 OFF without having to pay anything upfront and wait for the refund. Put simply we deduct £500 from your invoice and claim it back from the Government.

Like most technology these days they vary on ability and features. The most basic fast charger is around £300-400, however only smart chargers qualify for the grant. These start at around £500 and go up to approx £1500.  Installation costs start at £185, however this is for a standard install. Some houses will require more work done to enable the installation of an electric vehicle charge point.

Yes, most electric vehicle chargers can be installed outside in a suitable location. However some chargers (lacking in advanced safety devices) require different installation methods that add additional installation costs. 

All electric vehicles have different size batteries and have different maximum charge rates. A Tesla Model 3 base model has a 50kWh battery and will take just under 7 hours to fully charge on a 7.4kWh fast charger. Currently, a 7.4kWh charger is the fastest home charger for most homes. These chargers are approximately 3 times faster than the small plug in leads offered with the car and offer a greater level of safety.

WORKPLACE CHARGING
SECURE AND RELIABLE ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGE POINTS

At Voltix we know the importance of charging your electric vehicle fleet as fast as possible. We can provide you with the right SMART solution that  will integrate with your companies backend systems and provide intelligent load management to ensure the available power is reliably distributed in line with your organisation’s needs.

Voltix is an approved OLEV installer of workplace EV charge points. Your business could be eligible for a grant of £10,000 under the UK government Workplace Charging scheme.

 

FAQ’s

An untethered electric vehicle charge point is a more popular option for the workplace as it removes the need for having type 1 and a type 2 availability. Also tethered charge points tend to see a lot of wear and tear on the cables and this can lead to expensive maintenance costs. Staff tend to look after their own EV charge leads better.

Yes any business can claim for the grant as long as your business has off-street parking and be able to prove the need for electric vehicle chargepoints. Also the chargepoints must be installed by an approved OLEV installer in addition to be an approved installer of the desired brand of chargepoint.

Basic fast chargers cost around £300-400, however only smart chargers qualify for the workplace EV grant. These start at around £500 and go up to around £4000 and higher for specialist chargers.  Installation costs start at £185, however this is for a standard install.

Most businesses require a bespoke installation and more than one charger. commonly software required to manage the multiple chargers to ensure they are reliable and do not interfere with the power supplies to other  requirements of the business e.g. lighting and computers.

Most chargers have some form of lock, however brands such as Keba, EO and Wallbox have more advanced software to track individual employees energy consumption, times available to charge, speed of charge and control secure access through RFID or face recognition. 

Picture above shows the very reliable Keba KeContact. EV FACT: Keba are the manufacturers of the BMW Wallbox. The components inside the Keba X range are more advanced than those provided within the BMW charge point. The BMW unit is more pleasing to the eye however the Keba unit has been designed specifically for reliability under the most extreme conditions.
