What are the benefits of using a charge point instead of a regular 3-pin plug?

  • Safer Charging -‘Mode 3’ charging allows your EV to communicate with the charger, instructing it to turn off the power when your car is fully charged.
  • Faster Charging – A charge point will allow you to charge your vehicle significantly quicker. For example, a Nissan Leaf will take up 12 hours to recharge its battery using a standard household socket. A Leaf with a standard 3.3kW on-board charger will take approximately 8 hours using a home charge point. A Leaf with the 6.6kW upgraded on-board charger will take just 4 hours to achieve a 100% charge.

What are the requirements for a grant-assisted charge point installation?

  • An eligible electric vehicle which is privately owned or a company car.
  • Off-street parking location for your charge point installation.
  • EV charging stations must be within reasonable distance (approx 10m) of the electricity distribution board.
  • Adequate existing electrical capacity for the charge point installation.

A Socket unit is a universal charge point which can be used with an appropriate lead.
