Electric vehicles are officially the way of the future. The UK is due to implement a ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel cars and vans. This will come into effect in 2030. While this is still a long way off, there are many benefits to switching to electric vehicles now. For example, the benefit in kind (BIK) rate for electric vehicles is a very attractive 9%.
EV charging is basically the same as any other form of charging. There are, however, two reasons why EV charging is often viewed differently from general charging. The first is that electric vehicles have much bigger batteries than most other devices. The second is that EV charging sometimes needs to be monitored, e.g. as part of company expenses.
Electric vehicles can be charged using standard home infrastructure. In fact, they often are. They can, however, be charged a lot more quickly using special EV charging services.
The sticking point with electric vehicles has always been the need for EV charging services. Fortunately, this is now being addressed. What’s more, the forthcoming ban on petrol and diesel vehicles means that there is likely to be significant government investment in EV charging infrastructure.
At the same time, however, the private sector is still expected to do its bit to support EV charging point installation. You may already have noticed how a wide range of service outlets now provide EV charging services. It’s probably fair to say that anywhere there are refuelling services there are likely to be EV charging services.
In fact, it’s possible to install EV charging services even when you can’t have refuelling services. For example, relatively few businesses could have their own refuelling stations on site.
It is, however, fairly easy for them to organise EV charging point installation.
EV charging point installation should only ever be undertaken by an electrician certified in EV chargers installation. Regardless of where you are located, it is usually easy to find one. Most of the other requirements for EV charging point installation can be easily satisfied if you own your own property. Even if you don’t it’s often straightforward to come to an arrangement with landlords.
Some EV charging services require internet access for over-the-air software updates and/or customer support. As always, WiFi is generally preferable, but generally, mobile data will be adequate.
EV charging maintenance requirements should be minimal. Generally, the key point is to do whatever possible to protect the EV charging services from the weather. This applies even if you install a weatherproof unit. If you install a wall-mounted unit, then you also need to ensure that the wall is solid.
Most EV charging services will simply require an annual maintenance visit to ensure that everything is still working as it should. Reputable EV charging point installation providers will also provide aftercare and a warranty to deal with any unexpected problems.
