The electric vehicle charging points are used to charge the EV’s. You simply have to connect the charger to your electric vehicle thanks to a special cable. We can provide different utilities like home EV charging points or commercial and public EV charging points.
The charging points work like domestic sockets but with different characteristics. Indeed, you can use your own socket at home to charge your electric car. However, it’s strongly recommended that you use a dedicated charger for your safety and for faster charging . See more information on the advantages of charging points.

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