Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme

As the government continues to work towards zero emissions, they have continued an initiative that contributes up to £350 towards (as of the 1st April 2020) the installation of electric vehicle charging points. You can claim for one charging point per vehicle, for up to two points per household.

How do I qualify?

  • You must have off-street parking.
  • You must install an OLEV-approved chargepoint, such as Project EV’s.
  • You must use an OLEV-approved chargepoint installer.
  • Customer must have proof they are the registered keeper / lease of the vehicle.

What is AC Charging?

AC is the abbreviation for alternating current, and the power that comes from the grid is always AC power.

The national grid delivers AC (Alternating Current) but Electric Vehicles must charge their batteries with DC (Direct Current).

An AC car charging point/EVSE supplies the car charger which then transfers the power to DC, allowing the battery to be charged. It’s important to look at the size of the onboard charging device and specification of your EV. The capacity of this will depend on how fast the on-board system can receive the AC current from the source.

If the onboard converter in your electric vehicle is small, the amount of power they are able to deliver to the battery is typically low. (6-22 kWh)

How does AC charging work?


Electric vehicles use the electric grid for power, and an AC EV charger with a socket to outlet plug connection is used to recharge it. Home chargers are wired into the electricity network used by your home, allowing you full monitoring and control of when and how often to charge.

The AC car charger also acts as a way to tell the vehicle what maximum current it can draw each time you charge. It also regulates the charging according to the current possibilities of the home, so the network isn’t overloaded.

Why choose AC charging?


AC car charging is the ideal option for a home charging system, as it is a cost-effective route for many EV owners. Not only is it convenient, but it is also one of the most reliable sources of charging for an electric car. AC EV charger speeds depend on the output power of the charge point as well as the capabilities of the converter to change the power to DC.

The AC car charging method is most suitable for your home as the car will be stationary for longer periods of time and you’ll be able to charge your electric car fully. This can be done overnight to avoid peak electricity tariffs and reliance on the grid. If you need an option with a shorter charge time or require rapid charging, you may need to purchase a DC charging device.

AC charging at home allows you to plan for optimum efficiency ahead of any journeys or trips. You’ll be able to plug in your EV to the charging station in a secure setting, such as on the drive outside your home.

Product Range

Everybody is Going Electric

The range of domestic and commercial vehicle manufacturers beginning to produce dedicated electric vehicles is bigger than ever. Manufacturers from Ford to Ferrari have added fully electric and hybrid models to their core range in line with the government’s promise to make all vehicles on the UK’s roads zero emissions by 2050. The infrastructure is growing at the same fast pace with more accessibility to charge points across the UK.
