ELEKTROMOTIVE

Elektromotive Elektromotive have designed one of the most commonly used charging points called 'Elektrobays'.

RB Grant are fully approved installers for Elecktromotive

They are shoulder height with a plug socket. The posts have a yellow coiled power lead which will supply 240 volts.

The Elektrobays are designed for indoor and outdoor use and can be activated by an electronic tag.

POD POINT

POD points POD points are compatible with existing electric car charging tags. All POD points are wirelessly connected to a central communications network so usage and availability is monitored in real time and you have a linked online account.

OHME CHARGER

Ohme have engineered and developed two leading-edge home chargers to ensure you get more from your EV. Ohme’s unique smart EV charging technology uses live data to provide you with smarter, greener and cheaper charging.

WALLPOD

If you then change your electric vehicle, it will only be the pods that will need to be changed.

This design is simple, consumer friendly and cost effective.

The WallPod for home use is available with 13A, 16A and 32A charging outputs. The charging cable and plug can be locked to the wallPod unit or the vehicle charge point.

CHARGEMASTER

ChargemasterChargemaster have a range of charging posts available:

  • Fast charge: twice the charging speed of a standard post
  • Home charge: easily installed in driveway
  • Combi-charge: has the capacity to charge at both 13A (3kw) and 32A (7kw)
  • Dual charge: charge two electronic vehicles simultaneously

APT

  • Evolt Xpress for faster charging

EDF ENERGY

EDFEDF Energy  is partnering with Peugeot UK and Citroën UK to offer residential and fleet customers electric vehicle re-charging products and services with the sale of every Peugeot iOn or Citroën C-Zero.

The partnership will ensure best in class motoring technology, and safe and convenient re-charging solutions. It will support the development, future marketing and uptake of fully electric and plugin hybrid vehicles.

It will cost homeowners £799 for a smart meter, a home survey and a fast-charging point. This charging point can, says EDF, re-charge an electric car 35% faster than a normal plug socket.

ECOTRICITY

EcotricityEcotricity have partnered up with ChargePoint Services to develop an electric charging post with a solar panel.

Its main aim is a free charging point powered by renewable energy.

The Importance of Electrical Car Charging Points

An electric car draws a lot of current. Using a household plug to charge runs the risk that with such a heavy load, the plug could overheat. And if the electric car is charging on a circuit that’s powering other appliances, there’s a risk of overload and the potential to do damage to other appliances. It’s best to have an isolated circuit for any EV therefore a dedicated car charger.

Another consideration is the condition of the household wiring. If it is old or inadequately protected, or just unsuitable for high loads, there could be a potential fire hazard.
