Installing a charging station will be no problem. We just need to verify the technical conditions for the installation.
Authorization must be requested from the condominium association, in order to install the charger. LeasePlan provides a draft template for completing your data. By law, the condominium is obliged to approve this request, unless the required technical conditions for installation are not met.
Authorization will be needed from the property owner and the condominium association in order to install a charging station. This draft is also provided by LeasePlan. Additional installations may be needed in the building’s garage to allow data exchange with the charging station.
The driver will have to use public charging stations near the area of residence, or use a charging station available at the office (if applicable).
How can I charge my electric vehicle?
The battery is the heart of your electric vehicle, so you must take good care of it. When you fill up your car with petrol or diesel, you usually think: "The fuller, the better". In electric vehicles, lithium batteries will last longer if you keep them charged between 20% and 80%.
Although a full charge is not ideal, it’s not the end of the world – so long as you don’t leave your car parked for a long time after a full charge. Fully draining your battery’s charge is also not advisable. If this happens, it is important to recharge your car as soon as possible.
You can charge your electric vehicle at work, at home or on the road. There is an extensive and growing network of electric chargers in Portugal and in Europe (more than 150,000).
If you represent a company, you can address 90% of your drivers’ charging needs by offering chargers at home and at work.
Different chargers offer different charging speeds, although charging time is also influenced by the vehicle’s capacity.
PHEVs charge at speeds of 3.7 kW to 7.5 kW, and as a rule in slow charging. In these types of vehicles, the battery has a capacity of about 10 kWh, so in order to fully charge the battery, which has a charging speed of 3.7 kW, it will take approximately 3 hours.
100% electric cars charge at speeds of 7.5 kWh to 22 kWh or up to 150 kW, depending on the current used – alternating (AC) for slow charging or direct (DC) for fast charging.
For example: a car with a 50 kWh battery, with a charging speed of 22 kW in AC, will take approximately 2.5 hours to charge. If in direct current, with a charging speed of 50 kW, it will take approximately 45 minutes to reach the maximum limit of 80% of battery capacity (in DC, in order to preserve the battery life).
If you move, the equipment can be transferred to your new home, but the deinstallation and installation costs must be paid by you or by the company.
To determine whether buildings have the proper energy capacity, a technical visit will be done by the LeasePlan partner responsible for charger installation.
It is important to meet one of the following conditions:
If neither of these power conditions can be met, is important to determine if the capacity can be increased.
Billing will depend on the type of charging solution chosen, which falls into one of two categories:
