What are the benefits of having a home charge point?
Ernest Till South West are proud to announce we are formally approved EV Charge Point installers as part of the OLEV Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme.
Funding is currently available towards the cost of home charge points for electric vehicles from the Energy Saving Trust and the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV).
We would be happy to answer your queries and / or provide you with a quotation to install a charge point at your home.
Our EV experts will help you choose the best place for your chargepoint, show you how to charge your electric car and answer any question you might have.
Unlike a conventional plug socket, a charge point communicates directly with your car, making charging at home much safer
Charging time is reduced by 30 - 60 per cent, depending on the car, making charging at home much quicker
The typical cost for a home charge point and installation is approximately £1400. As part of its Electric Vehicle Homecharge scheme, OLEV currently offers applicants £500 towards this cost. Energy Saving Trust will provide up to £500 further funding on top of this. For the cost covered by OLEV you will not need to make any payment to your supplier, as they will receive this money from OLEV directly. For the costs above what OLEV cover, you will have to pay your supplier and the Energy Saving Trust will then provide you with your (up to £500) reimbursement. Any remaining costs above the £500 provided by OLEV and the £500 provided by the Energy Saving Trust you would need to pay for yourself.
