EV Recharging Point Installation
An electric car typically runs at an equivalent cost of paying 15 pence per litre for petrol, this saving can be as much as £1000 for every 10,000 miles. This huge saving is compounded by cheaper road tax and savings with higher residual prices for vehicles.
Able electricians have several years of experience installing recharging points for electric vehicles in the home or at the workplace. We are approved installers of Rolec systems and we are accredited with the City & Guilds 2919 Electric Vehicle Equipment Installation qualification along with over 16 years within the Electrical industry.
We will initially provide you with a free survey, this includes an investigation into your existing electrical installation to ensure it can cope with extra demand and to ascertain any improvements that maybe required, we then look at the suitability of your desired location.
Once you have made your decision to work with us we will arrange a time when most convenient to you for our technicians to install your charging point. All our installations come with a three-year guarantee.
Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) is the regulatory body that controls the standards of practice for the installation of electric Vehicle recharging points. As approved installers, we can obtain a grant for your installation which can be as much as £500 towards the cost of the installation.
Workplace Charging Scheme
The workplace charging scheme is a government controlled scheme designed to encourage people to switch to an electric vehicle. It is proven that people are six times more likely to switch to an electric vehicle if there is a recharging point present.
As an employer, you can claim up to 75% of the cost of each EV recharging point up to a maximum of £500.
The scheme works on a voucher system, simply apply to OLEV and you will be given a voucher code to present to us on commencement of the installation.
