Design, Support and Consultation

An electric vehicle charging station, also called EV charging station,  is a machine that supplies electric energy for the recharging of plug-in electric vehiclesā€”including electric cars and plug-in hybrids.

 

Filling up with fuel is easy, charging an electric car, however, seems a bit more complicated.

The different connectors, compatibility, and variable rates of charge can make it seem like a complex job, but electric car charging need not be so confusing.

There are three basic ways to charge an electric car: at home, at work, or at a public charging point.

Want to start each day with a ā€˜full tankā€™? Charging each night at home will provide all the daily driving range the average driver will need.

You can charge using a regular domestic 3 pin socket, but a dedicated home EV charger is the better option by far.

Dedicated EV home chargers typically deliver around 7kW of power. In contract, most vehicle manufacturers limit the current drawn from a standard domestic 3 pin socket to 10A or less, which equates to a maximum of 2.3kW. 

A 7kW home charger therefore delivers approximately three times as much power and is approximately three times as fast as using a domestic socket.

Home chargers are also much safer as they are designed to deliver that level of power over long periods.If you are considering a domestic installation contact Space Renewable Energy Ltd  on 02392 341835 or use the following link to find out more about the Renewable Heating Incentive, The Home Energy Assessment or further details about the Green Deal. ....www.energysavingtrust.org.uk
