Frequently asked questions
What does a standard installation involve?
Our EV chargepoint installations are grouped into three categories.
They consider different factors that help us estimate how complex the installation is going to be:
- Where do you want your charger to be fitted?
- How long will it take to run a cable from your main fuse box to your charger?
- Will we need to drill through any walls?
A standard installation is included in the price of your charger. But if the installation is more complex and our engineers will need to spend more time at your home, it’ll cost a bit more.
Every home is different and you might want something more complex. For example, fixing your chargepoint to a pole or hiding cables under floorboards. In these cases, we’ll prepare a custom quote for you.
Do I have to be an OE customer?
No anyone can apply!
How much does it cost?
Our charger installations start from £999 for a standard installation, we'll be able to let you know if you are standard or non-standard once you complete the application form.
What size cable do I need for an EV charger?
The EV chargers we offer have 5m of cable as standard and 6.5m for the Zappi. Generally this is enough for most houses where the box is on the outside of the house and the car is on the driveway. We are able to quote for longer cables during your remote survey.
What does a standard installation involve (detailed)?
A standard Charge Point Installation includes:
The fitting of the charger on a brick or plaster wall, (or other suitable permanent structure)
Routing of the cable through 1 x drilled hole in a wall up to 500mm thick (where required)
Up to 10 metres of High Tuff cable, run and clipped to the wall between the consumer unit and the EV charger, up to a height of up to 1.8m
All electrical connections at the origin of the supply and the charging unit
Type A RCD in metal Consumer Unit
Electrical testing and NICEIC Certification
Installation of a Matt-e unit (or alternative earthing unit) where the EV charging hardware necessitates
Demonstration of the Charge point functions and App.
Can I plug my electric car into a regular outlet?
Yes, you can. Would we recommend it? Not really. With such a low charge it can take you a long time to charge your electric vehicle.
Is a home EV charger worth it?
Yes! If you have off-street parking, getting a home EV charging point is worth it for two major reasons: you won't have to rely on finding public EV chargers and you can take advantage of low price tariffs during the night. And, with our salary sacrifice scheme for electric vehicles, you get the charger with standard installation included.
How much power does a home charger use?
It differs between chargers, but the EV chargers we offer are around 7kW. To compare, a typical electric furnace draws about 10-20kW and a water heater uses 3-4,5kW.
What will I need for a remote EV charger survey?
You’ll need to answer some questions about where you want the EV charger to be installed, and send us some photos so we can check your eligibility and decide how to get it sorted for you.
What do I need to switch to Intelligent Octopus?
To take advantage of our Intelligent Octopus tariff with cheap overnight charging, you'll need to:
Be an Octopus energy customer
Have a SMETS2 smart meter
Have an Ohme charger
