EV Charging Stations

Improve the value of your home with an EV charging point grant

ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGERS

As the popularity for electric vehicles increases in the UK, the need for vehicle charging stations in domestic and commercial locations is rising. We install a range of Evolt vehicle charging stations designed for a range of locations including homes, service stations, restaurants, retail outlets, the workplace and city centres. The chargers have a range of compact designs with single or dual charging sockets, smart energy meters, access and prepayment card options. Fast charging options are available along with multiple, electric bike charging options. To reduce carbon emissions further and improve efficiency of the electric vehicle technology we can install car chargers as part of our modular solar car ports. These car ports can be installed as single bays or expanded to provide multiple bays for a car park. The solar car port will clearly identify car charging spaces, offer advertising space, provide shelter whilst charging, generate electricity for the charger and provide an income from the FIT.

I had one both for the house and holiday cottage. No strings attached and no need to either have an electric car. All part of a latest govt fund to increase the infrastructure for future electric vehicles growth...

The rapid chargers we are talking about are in the range of 30 - 80 Kw which would charge a Leaf to 80% in 20 mins from near empty. We will never see the petrol pump idiom for battery electric cars.

Finding A Public Charging Station Near You

UK public charging stations

The UK Government has plans in place to have all new vehicle being sold in the UK to be zero emmission vehicles by 2040 and all cars on the roads to be zero emmissions by 2050. Make no mistake about it the days of driving around in vehicles powered by fossil fuels are coming to an end!
Soon everyone in the UK will be forced to scrap their old fossil fuel burning cars for new electric or hydrogen powered cars. Electric cars are the cheapest to run and most convenient to 're-fuel' so are expected to be the most popular of the zero emmissions technologies, to find your nearest public ev charging points check this map.
The UK Government have commited £500 million to ensure their targets are reached, part of which funds the installation of your own EV charging station at your home until May 2015.

FAQ'S | ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGERS

This depends on what journeys you normally do. If you are going to drive continuously back and forth then yes you will run out of juice. If you drive across Orkney then the maximum distance is 40 miles (Burwick to Birsay) But it is not just a case of how far you go, but how long will you be at each end? See below.
Yes, but this comes down to what you plan to do. Studies have shown that most people need to charge up around every third day. So you will definitely need to charge up more often than you do for a fossil fuel car. Most people seem to charge their cars at home and at work and tend to plug them in when they park. It really becomes routine, and the cars look after the charging. It is plug in and forget.
Not much. A full charge at peak rate will be about £2, but most charges are only partial and most are off peak, so a lot less. If you have your own wind turbine or solar panels then you might be able to get your charges for free.
No. The cars won't go if they are plugged in, so there is no risk of you setting off down the drive dragging your garage behind you!
No. It takes about 45 seconds to get the cable out and plug it in. That is about the same time as getting a kid out of a car seat or a couple of bags of shopping out of the boot.
These are expensive to install at over £5000 each, partly because of the need to dig up pavements, but also the legal costs of leasing the pavement! They will probably come in due course as streets are dug up and overhauled, but the most likely roll out will be sockets in private driveways.
Surprisingly the answer is 'Almost anywhere'. In effect most cars charge from a 13A socket for a normal charge, but there are also fast & faster chargers which are more specialised…. and therefore a bit rare. The public ones being put in in Scotland will deliver up to 32A, but the electric vehicles tend to limit this to 16A. They have a different sort of plug and socket. More of this later. The really fast chargers deliver about 50kW and are real beasts. In terms of using the standard 13A socket then these need to be planned a bit as most tend to be indoors and running a cable out of a window is not convenient. Some people will have them in barns or garages and there are probably thousands of sockets across Orkney that could be used, but we need to discover the ones that are convenient for charging.
There is a need for more charge points/sockets in public areas such as car parks. These are coming, but frankly you are unlikely to need them anyway. Studies done elsewhere (www.cabled.org.uk) focussed on installing charge points to get cars to be used, but in the end the points were barely used and people generally charged at home or at work.
Ironically charging in town may be more difficult than the countryside. If you can get a car off the road and up to a garage then there are normally 13A sockets to hand. The odd additional socket on the outside wall of the garage/along the driveway will help.
There are several ways of making this work:
  1. Private charging is just like any other electric appliance in your home so you pay….. unless you have some renewables and can supply the charging power from what you are generating in which case it is free.
  2. Some workplaces are happy to provide charging points, some will charge, some think it not worth the hassle. The maximum is likely to be a few pence a day and probably they subsidise tea and coffee more than that.
  3. Public charging points are generally on some sort of swipe/smart card meter. The details are being worked out, but generally you will register a credit card and then be issued with a smart card. Waving the card over the charging point unlocks it allowing you to plug in and you then get billed for the electricity used.
A normal charge will take up to 6 hours, a fast charge will take an hour….. but in both cases these are for full charges, and most of your charges will be partial anyway so shorter.
An electrician can wire one up for you. Everybody's set up will be different, but a 134A socket itself will probably cost under £30 and the costs will depend on the labour needed to get a good quality connection to it by a decent electrician. There are grants available to put in sockets through the Energy Savings Trust, but these are limited to the 16A sockets.
Manufacturers are stating ranges on average of about a hundred miles For a range of 200 miles or more, buyers will need to look at a more expensive electric vehicle, such as the Tesla Roadster.
