What is EV Charging
An electric vehicle charging station, also called EV charging station, electric recharging point, charging point, charge point, electronic charging station (ECS), and electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE), is an element in an infrastructure that supplies electric energy for the recharging of plug-in electric vehicles —including electric cars, neighborhood electric vehicles, and plug-in hybrids.
Is there any help available to install an EV Charging Station?
With the OZEV grant, you can save up to £350 on your home installation.
The government is keen to encourage drivers to switch to electric and hybrid vehicles in order to meet emissions goals, so they are offering a grant to those who want to install a domestic charging point.
5 reasons why to choose an electric car
1. They save you money no matter where you plug in across the country, electric vehicles are cheaper to run than their petrol/diesel counterparts.
2. Electric vehicles cut your emissions Even when the electricity used to fuel an EV comes from the dirtiest coal-dominated energy from the grid.
3. Electric vehicles offer you a better driving experience, an electric engine generates instant torque, which means that electric vehicles zoom off starting lines and provide smooth, responsive acceleration and deceleration. Electric vehicles also have a low centre of gravity, which improves handling, responsiveness, and ride comfort.
4. Electric vehicles cut your oil use Electric vehicles are an essential part of the UK’s Net Zero plan by 2050.
5. Electric vehicles are convenient, Instead of searching for a fuel station with the cheapest prices, you can charge at home at a cheaper and much more predictable cost. And plugging in at home takes only a few seconds and lets you wake up with a “full tank” every morning. EVs also have other convenient advantages. Battery electric vehicles are mechanically much simpler than a conventional car, so the maintenance requirements are often much simpler and, for this reason, cheaper to maintain. Drivers of electric cars do not have to change their car’s motor oil every 5,000 to 10,000 miles, and they never have to schedule spark plug changes, timing belt replacements, or other engine tune up items.
