Whether you are looking for single or multiple point systems, wall mounted or ground deployment solution we are able to design and install your bespoke solution.

Charging from a standard plug takes longer and is not safe
Utilising purposely installed equipment at home from a dedicated supply is the safest and most reliable option to recharge your vehicle offering 3-4 hours recharge cycle. Domestic charge points often come with a tethered cable, so there is always a connecting lead waiting for you when you need it.
Different cars, different connectors
In a domestic setting we have generally a choice of two models. Either 16amp or 32amp, both of which can be installed in tethered or untethered version. During our pre installation survey our engineer will explain all benefits of having various units as some might be better suited then others.
Quality and Safety of Installation
Charging at Work
With most daily commutes coming in at under twenty miles, getting an electric car could prove to finance feasible. You can arrive at work, pop it on charge, and have it fully charged in time for your drive home.
We have seen a significant increase in business installing charge points for their staff and visitors. Although there are no Government subsidies for private sector workplaces, the installation is generally straightforward and cost effective as the unit can be shared between staff. If you own an electric vehicle we can talk to your boss about having unit installed for you and your colleagues.
I needed some second fix works carrying out including sockets for appliances and a couple of light fittings installed including 4 spotlights. Chris was unable to install the sockets because the wall was lined with plywood (I did not make Chris aware of this) Chris did however successfully install the socket for the fire and fit the two light fittings in the dining room and landing. The spotlights in the kitchen were fitted but it doesn’t appear a hole saw was used on the newly plastered ceiling and there has been a LOT of making good to do (plaster repairs) around the fittings which isn’t ideal.
He was punctual, polite and tidied up when he had finished, he even made a fuss of our little dog! We were having our cooker connected, having just moved in. I thought the price was a bit steep at £45, considering he was only here for ten, fifteen minutes, but appreciate that it is quite probably the going rate for the job, and we needed it doing ASAP. We would definitely ask him again if we need anything else doing, but I would get a couple of other quotes as well.
