Electric Cars & Vehicles in general become more and more popular in the past years. Electric Vehicles (EV) are better for the planet, quieter and lower maintenance than petrol/diesel cars. They also benefit from lower running cost, low taxes, as well as exemption of some charges (Congestion charge, ULEZ charge, etc.) as well as reduced parking charges. In short Electric Cars are the future and sooner or later, every household in Hemel Hempstead, Watford, St Albans, North London & Whole of the UK will have Electric Vehicle. Here comes the obvious question: Where is the nearest Electric Vehicles Charging Point?
The answer is simple.
You can have Electric Vehicles Charging Point installed in your home.
Given that most of the private cars are usually parked at home overnight, it is essential the Electrical Vehicle (EV) owners to rely on home charging, to ensure that their Electric Cars are ready for use each morning. Among all other Professional Electrical Services, Elsys Electrical Ltd offers its domestic & commercial Customers with Professional Electric Vehicles Charging Point Installation & Maintenance Service.
Electric Vehicles can be charged at public charging stations. Some are free, some charge a small fee, and they are available across the UK. Charging your EV at home overnight, however take advantage of being (in majority of the cases) the most cost-effective time to recharge your Electric Car.
Electric cars have ranges of 200-300 miles, so home charging will definitely be the most convenient for day to day running, but may, as well need supplementing on long journeys.
The most common question from new EV owners is:
Can I charge my car from the mains?
As a short-term or occasional solution, charging from the mains is fine. Continued daily use of a standard power socket, however, is not recommended. The proper solution is to install a specially-designed Electric Vehicles Charging point in your home. These are becoming more and more common with nowadays advanced technology.
The chances are, if you’re just using your Electric Car as a runaround in town, you won’t need to use public charging points; home charging will do just fine. There are two ways of doing it: the first is straight from the mains.
Depending on how many volts your domestic power socket’s supply is, charging from the mains in the UK should take 6-9 hours. The easiest thing to do is to plug your car in overnight.
Installing a Home Electric Vehicles Charging Point
Getting a charger installed at your home, makes your life a lot easier. It is safer and charges approximately 2-3 times faster than with a 3 pin plug. It’s just as quick as – or even quicker than some – public charging points and you do not need to wait around at a service station. Home chargers – normally either 16-amps or 32-amps – can charge an electric vehicle from flat to full in 3.5 hours.
The Government provides financial support for EV buyers to install charging point at their property through the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS), which covers up to 75% of the total costs.
