How long will my EV take to charge?
It can take as little as 30 minutes or as long as 10 hours to charge an electric car, this is really dependant on the size of the battery and speed of the charging point. A standard electric car with a 60kWh battery takes less than 8 hours to charge from empty to full with a 7kW charging point.
How much will it cost to charge my EV?
You can charge your car for as little as 2p per mile. On average, the overnight electricity rate is 15p per kWh however fees do vary dependant on the network you use.
Where can I find the OZEV Installation Form for the new EVHS Scheme?
Please reach out to us for an editable version of the form, our engineers will also bring this onsite with them for you to complete.
How do I know if my business qualifies for the Workplace Charging Scheme?
- You must have off-street parking
- Although you do not need to own an electric vehicle you will need to express an existing or future need for the business
- You must use an OZEV WCS approved chargepoint installer like us
- There must not be any previous WCS or EVHS grant claims against your name
Where can I check if my car is eligible for the grant?
You can check if you're vehicle is eligable for the grant here on the government website
Should I have a tethered or untethered chargepoint?
A tethered charging cable is permanently attached to the unit. When not in use, the cable can be wound up and hooked onto the charger to avoid it gathering on the floor (this is dependant on the chargepoint) you can purchase accessories such as a U-Hook if your chargepoint doesn’t have this built in, if this is something you'd like, please reach out to our team.  
An untethered unit is supplied with a socket entry only (no cable attached). Prices vary on both tethered and untethered units however if you’d like a cable supplied with an untethered charger please ask our team for advise.
What is the difference between a 7kW and a 22kW charger?
22kW charging can only be supported by households that have a three-phase electrical set up. Most houses in the UK are single-phase and can only support a maximum 7kW charging output due to the UK grid. A 22kW charger is three times faster than a 7kW charger however although the charging speed may be faster, charging speeds are dependent on the car’s onboard charger. Not all electric vehicles are able to charge 7kW+, these EVs can still be plugged into the chargepoint however will only draw the maximum power accepted by the cars onboard charger. For example, if your EVs onboard charger has a 3.6kW onboard charger, it will draw a maximum of 3.6kW from a 7kW power supply or three-phase power supply.

What is a Home Charpoint?
A dedicated home chargepoint is a compact, weatherproof charging unit that is typically mounted on a wall at residential properties. Tethered units will have a charging cable connected to the unit and untethered units will have a socket to plug in a portable charging cable. The charging cable can then be plugged into your EV to charge.
Can I use a 3-pin plug to charge my EV?
Yes you can but most EV owners will do this as a last a resort as home charging units are more powerful. A 3-pin plug could take up to 17 hrs where as a chargepoint unit would take less than half of this.
