Factors that steer our recommendations are styling, solar integration, space available, number of electric cars, wall mounted or free-standing, indoor or outdoor.

STEP TWO
SITE AUDIT

Once you’ve chosen or narrowed down your choice of charger we’ll email you for specific photos and information so that we can carry out a remote site audit.

Our EV chargepoint installation team will contact you to confirm whether you fall under the standard or custom installation category. Once all this is confirmed, we will book in a date for your installation.

You may be eligible for the OLEV Homecharge or workplace grant which provide up to £500 discount per EV charger.

If you are claiming for a government grant we will send you an application form that needs to be completed and sent back prior to the installation.

STEP FOUR
INSTALLATION

Your EV Chargepoint Installer will confirm with your the charger location and cable routing before commencing the install. Once your chargingpoint installation is complete, you will be given a basic demonstration on how to use your charge point.
