The majority of electric car charging happens at home. Whilst it is possible to keep your car charged up with a standard household plug, it is not quick, convenient, or in some cases not as safe. A dedicated electric car charge-point at your house will typically allow you to charge quicker, safer, and easier. Not only this, but the government offer a £350 grant towards the installation of some charge points
A chargepoint is simply somewhere to charge your EV. All a chargepoint needs to do is take the 240V electricity supply from your house and make it accessible to you through an appropriate connection.
Why do you need one? There are a few reasons to install a dedicated chargepoint, the key reasons are:
To charge quicker
To improve safety
To reduce clutter and increase convenience “A fast charging set-up is the most suitable for the majority of electric car owners”
CHARGING RATE OPTIONS:
Standard Charging - 3kW (16A) Ÿ Fast Charging - 7kW (32A)
Super-Fast Charging - 22kW (32A three phase) Home Charge Point Options As a part of our service we will take care of the installation of your home charging point. We are happy to arrange the installation of any brand of charge point you specifically want to accompany your EV, however to make things easier for you we have selected what we consider the best charge points available for a variety of budgets and system needs.
We have selected the listed charge points based on the following criteria:
Quality and Reliability
Value and Affordablity
Simplicity of Use
Advanced Charging Features and App controls There are now an incredible number of options available in the home chargepoint market.
The choices below we recommend because they all come from very experienced and reputable manufacturers and they offer something different to the rest of the market. Value Rolec Wallpod Rolec EV make some of the most cost-effective home charge points available in the UK. They also offer customisable features that can make the Rolec chargers adaptable for your personal requirements. Rolec chargepoints come with the option of fitting a “Amp-Selector Rotary Switch.” This enables you to adjust the charging rate (6amp solar/13amp domestic/16amp or 32amp FastCharge.)
This can be very useful when trying to make effective use of a solar PV array. Rolec also allow options such as lockable sockets, built in meters, and a clock/timer. The charger itself is a simple unit that can be ordered with either a Type 2 socket or an attached charging cable.
Note: A Rolec 32A (7kW) charger is the same price as a 16A (3.3kW) charger so we would always recommend upgrading to the 32A charger even if you feel it is more

Zappi works just like a regular EV charger. Where Zappi stands out is its ability to integrate with grid-tied microgeneration systems, such as wind or solar PV generation.
Zappi comes with two special modes that allow charging to be automatically adjusted in response to on-site power generation and household consumption.
In ECO mode, charging power is continuously adjusted in response to changes in solar/wind production and household consumption. Zappi will ensure that your electric car gets fully charged, drawing power from the grid if necessary. In ECO+ mode, charge power is adjusted continuously just like ECO mode. The difference with ECO+ is that Zappi will pause charging if too much power is being drawn from the grid. This ensures that charging is as cheap and green as possible, even if this extends charging time.
When required Zappi can be used in Fast mode which allows Zappi to charge your EV as regular 7kW (32A) charger. The Zappi can be installed without the need for solar or wind. Zappi will work just like any other Fast charger but will allow you to seamlessly add solar in the future. We consider the Zappi a great choice for anyone that may consider more green technologies in the future.
