EV charging FAQs.
How much will it cost to get EV charging points installed at my premises?
There is no ‘one size fits all’ for EV charging solutions. Each unique quote is dependent on your individual requirements and site.
With just a few questions, we can give you an indicative price to help you decide what’s right for your business.
Can I only have a charging unit installed if I own my premises?
No. However, if you lease or rent your premises then you would usually be required to gain consent from the landlord before installation can begin.
What happens if I move premises?
If we installed the charging point then we can provide an estimate for moving the charging point equipment – just email our customer service team.
If the charging point is installed on your property and you would like to move it, you’ll be responsible for making the arrangements. Please under no circumstances should you attempt to move the charging point yourself. It should only be moved by a qualified electrician.
How can I prevent non-staff members from using my chargers?
Basic chargers can be operated using a key switch. We can also offer a system that remotely monitors the chargers and controls access via radio frequency identification (RFID) cards and/or a mobile app.
Remote monitoring can help in more complex cases. For example, you may have company vehicles, employees and visitors using the chargers, but you may only want to bill employees and visitors.
Different tariffs for different users can be set up, with some given free access. The system will still report back with details of things like energy used, charge time, location and user. The data can be filtered for easy monitoring.
How much does it cost to charge an electric car?
The beauty of electric vehicles is how much cheaper they often are to run compared to their petrol or diesel equivalents. The overall cost varies depending on a number of varying factors, such as battery size, energy consumption levels and the energy contracts you have in place (the current price per kWh you’re paying).

What funding is available?
The Office of Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) offer a grant to support the wider use of electric and hybrid vehicles. This is known as the Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS).
How long will my EV car take to charge?
Charging times depend on the make and model of your car and the type of charging point you have installed.
Below is an indication of how long each charging point takes to charge:
Standard (3-7kW) – 8-12 hours.
Fast(7-22kW) – 2-8 hours.
Rapid (Up tp 150kW) – 1-2 hours
Will I require a survey to be carried out at my site prior to installation?
Yes, we will arrange with our suppliers for their engineers to visit your premises and conduct a full site survey. They will work with you to determine the right charging equipment for your needs. Please note, the engineers will need access to your switch rooms.
The survey will include a review of whether the site has sufficient spare electrical capacity. If not, they can help you apply to your district network operator (DNO) for a quote for extra capacity.
