Do your Research
We always recommend you double-check EV charger installers are accredited both by OLEV and by the manufacturer of the charging point you are interested in.
If the installation company doesn't have both accreditations, then your installation won't be eligible for the £500 OLEV grant. Having said that, it's the installer who has to make the claim for the £500, so you should be fine either way.
OLEV has a data-base of accredited installers. You will need to search for the installer's name in the list. Then contact the manufacturer direct to ensure the installer has been trained on how to install the chargepoint you have selected. If necessary, ask to see their accreditation certificate.
How long does the EV charger installation take?
An electric car charger installation typically takes just a few hours. Often the EV charger installation company will visit first to work out a suitable location for the chargepoint, and then decide with you on an appropriate cable run. In this way, on the charger installation day, every should run nice and smoothly.
For a comprehensive overview of charging points and how they complement an electric car, please see our main Charging Points page. In a nutshell, better to get a 7 kW home EV charger, rather than a 3 kW charger, as you will be able to charge your electric car twice as fast. Charge overnight on a cheap, smart tariff, and your monthly 'fuel' bills will be incredibly low.
Full eligibility information for the grant – basically if you wish to participate in the government's Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) – can be found here.
