Home

Why install a charge point at home ?

  • To recharge your vehicle at home, typically overnight.
  • An existing mains socket will only charge your vehicle at the slowest speed possible. A dedicated charge point will increase the speed, safety and security of your charging facility.
  • A dedicated charge point can be installed in the most convenient location possible for your vehicle.
  • A government grant may be available for your domestic charge point. Ask your Rexel Energeasy Drive installer for details.

 

To help you decide which type of charge point (EVCP) is best for your home, we will consider the following :

  • Do you have a suitable location where you can have your charging point installed?
  • Do you meet the eligibility criteria for the government grant? Both your property and vehicle must meet the criteria.
  • Most drivers will qualify for the grant, but you can check the eligibility criteria at www.energeasy-drive.com/uk/en/11/electric-vehicle-homecharge-scheme
  • The power supply you have available and what speed of charge can therefore be installed at your home
