Electric vehicles (EVs) are on the rise and it’s inevitable that over the next decade petrol and diesel powered cars will become a thing of the past. If you’re buying an electric or plug-in hybrid electric car, you will require a charging point installed at your property, also known as an EV charger, to top up the battery.
Both electric cars and plug-in hybrid electric cars (or PHEVs) need to be regularly charged using a cable to ensure the battery has enough energy to deliver an adequate driving range. As most of the electric car’s charging will take place at your home, it makes perfect sense to have a professionally installed EV charger of your own. For those with a garage, private driveway or any form of off street parking, this is an obvious and very useful solution to recharge your EV. Although the UK’s public charging network is growing rapidly, being reliant on this alone will become an inconvenience and only allow limited time to recharge your battery.
Electric car charging points need to be professionally installed by certified charging point providers. At JD Carter, we are an approved EV charging installer based in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire.
Our installation process involves wall or floor mounting a charge point in a garage or to an exterior wall near to where you park your vehicle. It is then professionally and safely connected to the mains electricity supply.
Most EV charger installations will take around 3-4 hours to complete and depending on the number of points required and the complexity of the installation, it may take slightly longer. All EV charger installations are completed with minimum disruptions to the interior and exterior of your property.
If you combine your EV charger with a solar panel system it is possible to charge your electric vehicle for free. If you also have solar battery storage it would be possible to charge your car for free at night. If you’re interested in free electric car charging, please contact us to find out more.
