SC Electric are a specialist supplier & installer of EV charge points for homeowners, businesses and public authorities through-out the New Forest District.
Home EV charging points can save you money . The Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) OLEV grant, can provide customers with money towards the cost of charger installation, up to a maximum of £350. The cost of home charging will vary depending on the make and model of vehicle and your home electricity tariff, but a full charge might cost as little as £3 – meaning a car could cost 2p per mile to run.
It has been reported that home EV charge points may be better for EV battery life. An electric car battery is no different to other batteries – charging it over and over will eventually affect how well it can hold its charge, and its efficiency will be reduced. Charging it to near full when possible, rather than just for an hour or two, might be better for it in the long run – and this will be easier to do if you have your own charging point.
Home EV charging points can improve property value. There are over 200,000 electric car owners in the UK at the time of writing, and as more and more people opt to go electric, an electric car charging point can be an attractive addition for would-be buyers. Most chargers are discreet and also easy to uninstall/relocate if need be.
