There are thousands of chargepoint options eligible for the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme, which covers up to 75% of the unit and installation costs (to a maximum £350 including VAT). Pricing starts from a few hundred pounds for the most basic units, including installation, and increases as you add faster charging speeds, remote control via a smartphone app, or designer units with premium materials. There are around 400 units to choose from.
Installing a chargepoint has become a routine job, which usually doesn’t require additional work. However, some properties could require longer cabling from the electricity supply to the driveway, or upgrades to the main board in older houses. Extra costs should be identified during the application process.
