Electric Vehicle Chargers

There are many advantages to owning an electric or hybrid vehicle, not least energy efficiency and carbon reduction. The government is focused on promoting the use of EVs with a £400m commitment to encourage potential purchasers. Part of this strategy sets aside funding for the grant-assisted installation of EV charge units at homes and workplaces throughout the UK. Below we have tried to answer common questions relating to domestic and commercial EV charge point installations.
