How much does a commercial charge point installation cost?
The average cost of having a commercial EV charge point installed is between £1,000 - £1,500 + VAT. These chargers are usually 22kW or more (3-phase), whereas home EV charge points are typically rated at 7kW (single-phase). Business and commercial installations usually require more infrastructure and, frequently, groundworks for cabling, especially in staff and public parking areas. Where grants or funding may be available, this will always be checked at the time of quotation to provide the most cost-effective solution. Such grants may include an electric vehicle charging infrastructure grant or the workplace charging scheme, depending on availability and eligibility.
Is there any funding available for workplace EV chargers?
Grant and funding options will always be checked at the quotation stage, as we will ensure any available grants can be applied for in advance. EV Charging Grants aren't always available, as they are decided by the Office for Low Emission Vehicles and subject to government criteria and approval.
Can EV charging usage be managed/controlled?
With all commercial and business EV charger installations, there is a dedicated back-office software platform available to suit the needs and requirements of the premises. These allow full control of the EV charge points, giving different access levels to staff and the public required to operate charging effectively and efficiently. Several options are available, such as pre-payment, RFID, QR code, app-based access, and plug-go charging methods. Our friendly team offers full support by assisting with the setup of the software that can be easily accessed by a computer, online, or mobile device. As an operator, you can maximise your facility's profitability by utilising electric vehicle charging points.
What size EV charger for business/public charging?
The size of EV charger at a business or public premises really depends on the needs or requirements for charging and the supply available at the installation. Most businesses opt for 7kW, 22kW charge points frequently twin-socket units to allow extra capacity or users and sockets available. Planning permission isn't typically required for the works in having an EV charger installed, though larger installations would generally require this for 75kW or more. The suitability of EV chargers can be checked by our team to determine the best size charger and solution for the installation.
Helping your business or workplace in sustainability, carbon offset and CSR targets. Electric vehicles have many incentives for fleet/ workplaces such as benefit in kind, tax incentives and better economical efficiency. Workplace charging can also be made efficient, easily manageable and can have profitability depending on requirements.
How long does a commercial EV charge point installation take?
The first step would be requesting permission from the local distribution network operator (DNO) for permission installing the EV charging points. This is required to notify them of upcoming electricity usage for vehicle charging and may take a few weeks for approval. Depending on whether the premises require groundwork, this may be done prior to the charge points being installed or sometimes at the same time. The site will be left safe if prior work is required, and full health and safety measures will be in place to safeguard staff and business.
What are the other benefits of having EV charge points installed at a business or public premises?
Having EV charging facilities can improve your ISO 14001 and 5001 credentials. By improving the facilities offered, this boosts the public image of the business and shows the steps taken to ensure a more sustainable and efficient workplace or facility. Fuel costs will also decrease, as for some businesses this is a major benefit with staff travelling regularly. This can bring the cost down significantly. There are benefit-in-kind (BIK) incentives available, as well as tax benefits, which can be advised by tax advisors.
Can the EV chargers be accessed by anyone?
Our recommended charging points give you complete control over when the chargers are activated and who uses them. With the access control solutions available, you can have peace of mind. The chargers can also be set up on a public map to allow for paid charging sessions, allowing for profitability when not required.
What safety provisions are available for EV charging facilities?
We offer a full range of protective equipment to secure and protect EV chargers once installed. We offer signage for EV charging bays, barrier protection and full remote access to monitor charging usage/ access control. Our physical barrier systems require ground installation to ensure the most effective protection. Signage can be post/ wall and surface mounted to suit the facility.
