EV Charging ?
- Helps Facilitate the move from petrol and diesel vehicles
- Brings you closer to achieving carbon emission targets
- Incentives for staff to buy electric cars
- Additional revenue streams to use points
Using EV charging at home is a game-changer for electric vehicle owners. It's all about convenience. It's cost-effective, often cheaper than public charging options, and you can charge overnight, starting each day with a fully juiced-up car. It's not just about saving time and money; it's a practical and hassle-free way to embrace cleaner, greener transportation.
Benefits EV Charging
Home EV charging offers the convenience of charging your electric vehicle at home, eliminating the need for frequent visits to public charging stations
Home charging is typically more cost-effective than public charging, helping EV owners save money on fuel
Safer and faster
Charging at home ensures that your EV starts each day with a full battery and is much more effective than traditional plug sockets
Home chargers often allow you to set charging schedules and adjust charging levels to suit your needs, optimizing energy use
Charging your EV at home can be done with clean energy sources, reducing emissions and promoting sustainability
Home charging saves time compared to waiting for available charging stations, making your daily routine more efficient
With a seismic shift towards sustainable transportation, the electric vehicle (EV) industry stands at the forefront of innovation.
As we explore the dynamic landscape of EV charging, this case study shines a spotlight on Intercontinental Brands Ltd. Middlesbrough. The challenge they faced was multi-faceted: to harness the potential of EV charging technology, enabling use for multiple cars, facilitating regular software updates, and, crucially, delivering faster charging speeds than traditional home charging units.

Frequently asked questions
About our EV Charging
Yes, we can put back-office systems in place to allow you to charge for the energy they use. Whether through an app, or use of RFID cards/fobs that can be topped up as necessary.
During our survey stage, we can establish this to see what the limitations are. If needed, we can program the chargers to ‘dynamically load the balance’ against your supply. What this means is if they detect your supply is close to the limit, the units simply de-rate or turn down until the capacity has been restored.
This is an option but there are things to bare in mind when charging this way:
Your charging cable may not have the built in safety devices that would disconnect the car in the event of an electrical fault, generally a Mode 3 EV charger would have this either built in or part of the installation process.
It could possibly take twice as long to charge a fully electric car using this method as you would be limited to the 13amps supply from the socket outlet being used.
Although, a socket outlet is rated to 13 amps of current, they may not have been designed to be run at the limit for 10-20 hours constantly, and used 2-4 times per week. This could cause overheating and even burning of the socket/plug top, which can be very risky. A mode 3 EV charger has been designed for this type of use.
No, most home chargers can be set to ‘plug and charge’ for ease of use. Commercial and public chargers are also available for use with contactless payment machines to avoid this. Although, smartphone apps are becoming increasingly more user friendly.
Every car has a different size battery that is measured in kilowatt hours (kwh). For most home chargers you can charge at a rate of 7kW / 20-25 miles of range per hour. This means that if you have a 70kwh battery, it would take around 10 hours to charge.
This is generally fine when you charge overnight or at work. There are faster charging points available away from your home and come in different power ratings around the public areas.
