A 7kW Pod Point Solo 3 smart charger costs from £949 to install. In some cases, the price of the Pod Point Solo 3 smart charger may be less than this, due to subsidised pricing agreed with vehicle manufacturers.
The OZEV Grant, also known as the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) ended on 31st March 2022 and can’t be claimed for installs completed after this date.
Tethered charge points have a long cable and are available with either a Type 1 or Type 2 connector. Most new EVs come with a Type 2 connector, but it's always worth checking before getting a tethered charge point. A socketed charge point has no cable and is essentially a dedicated charging station. These are universal as they can charge any electric car with a fast charging cable.
This depends on the size of your car battery and the speed of the charging point. With a 7kW charging point it takes just under 8 hours to fully charge an electric car with 60kWh battery.
The kilowatt (kW) refers to the power rating of a home charge point and is the maximum amount of power that can be drawn from the socket at any one time. A 7kW home charger will charge your car three times faster than a three-pin plug.
In the UK 3-7 kW chargers are the most popular and are widely recommended. Some homes have a single-phase (AC) electricity supply and can support the additional 7 kW load. There are some homes with three-phase (AC) supply that can use a more powerful charger up to 22 kW. You always need to check with the installer that your fuse board has enough spare capacity to support the additional load of a home charging station.
You can attract an ever growing number of EV drivers as customers by offering charging points.
