EV Charging Points

When it comes to charging points for your (or your customers) electric vehicle, you should consider all the options and make the right choice.

Return on investment

We explain and demonstrate that as a charge point provider, you are able to set the charging tariff on your charge point. This creates an income stream. As a standard guide, it costs £5 in electricity to charge an EV. An end user would expect to pay £10 for this as a service. This is therefore a profit of £5 per charge. Assuming that the charge point is used very modestly just 4 times each week, that would equate to a profit of 4 x £5 x 52 weeks = £1040. So, the cost of installing the charge point should be covered in Year 1.

Profit share models

We are also working with charge point providers who will put the put the charge point in for no cost on the basis of being reimbursed through the profit share.

Answering key questions about charging points

Yes indeed, we work closely with OLEV approved installer partners to deliver a range of charging solutions for commercial EVs and cars. We help to deliver rapid and fast charging solutions, depending on available power supply. We arrange site visits and quotations.

Yes indeed, we work with OLEV registered installers across the UK and can organise all this for you.

Home charging: We carry out an initial site visit and arrange for a suitable charger to be installed. Most units are 7kW and full charge an EV between 4 – 6 hours.

 

Public charging: Subscribe to a public charge point provider (eg. BP Chargemaster), download an app and use. Very straight forward. Increasing number of public charge points now, over 20 000 across UK.

 

Workplace charging: We carry out an initial site visit and arrange for a suitable charger to be installed. Units vary according to power supply available. Usually 7kW or 22kW as fast chargers, but could be powerful rapid chargers (60kW+).

 

There is a broad range of fast and rapid chargers, depending on what suits your needs. All chargers come with a phone app, meaning they charge smartly at a time of your choosing – and can be an income stream for your business. We’ll help you find the charge point that's right for you.

 

In theory, yes - you could purchase a charging point online and install it yourself. However, you will not be eligible for a grant unless the charge point is installed by an OLEV qualified electrician.

The price will depend on type and functionality, but for a standard charging point (after the grant reduction), you can expect to pay in the region of £600 + VAT for the equipment and installation.

The average cost of charging an electric car at home is around £4 for 100 miles of charge.

 

As an example, if you paid 13p per kWh, a 54kW electric vehicle (eg. Renault Zoe) with an empty battery would cost a total of 54 x 13p = £7.02 to fully charge. The Renault Zoe has a range of around 245 miles.

All charge points come with an app which allows you to charge smartly, so charge at your selected and most efficient time for you.
