Electrical vehicle charging

With the rising increase of electric vehicles, a home charger is becoming necessary for economical and fast charging compared to the supplied “granny charger”.  We are able to supply and fit a range of different options to suit all budgets. 

Benefits to EV charging at home

Charging an electric vehicle (EV) at home offers several benefits, making it a convenient and popular choice for many EV owners. Here are some of the key advantages: 

 

  • Convenience: 

Accessibility: Charging at home allows you to plug in your EV overnight or whenever it’s convenient for you. You don’t need to visit a public charging station, saving time and effort. 

No waiting time: With home charging, you avoid potential queues or waiting times that might occur at public charging stations. 

  • Cost Savings: 

Lower electricity rates: Many utility companies offer lower electricity rates during off-peak hours, making it more cost-effective to charge your EV at home, especially if you can schedule charging during these times. 

Avoiding public charging fees: While some public charging stations may have fees, charging at home is typically included in your regular residential electricity bill. 

  • Time Savings: 

Multitasking: You can plug in your EV and go about your daily activities or sleep while it charges, saving you time compared to waiting at a charging station. 

  • Consistency and Predictability: 

Predictable charging times: Charging at home allows you to establish a routine, ensuring your EV is consistently charged and ready for use when you need it. 

Avoiding uncertainties: You won’t have to worry about the availability or functionality of public charging stations. 

  • Vehicle Health: 

Optimal battery maintenance: Home charging allows you to keep your EV’s battery within a specific state of charge range, which can contribute to optimal battery health in the long run. 

  • Avoiding deep discharges: Charging at home helps prevent your EV from experiencing deep battery discharges, which can be detrimental to battery life. 
  • Flexibility: 

Charge at your own pace: You can choose to charge your EV to the desired level, whether it’s a full charge or a partial top-up, based on your immediate needs. 

  • Environmental Impact: 

Control over energy sources: Depending on your local electricity grid and choices, you may have the option to use renewable energy sources for charging, reducing the overall carbon footprint of your EV. 

  • Home Charging Infrastructure: 

Installation incentives: In some regions, governments or utility companies offer incentives or subsidies to help cover the cost of installing home charging infrastructure.
