Installing your EV charging point

Choosing to install a home charging point is a great way to reduce your charge time and manage your energy usage. As a driver in Wrexham you only have access to a limited number of charging points, all of which require you to be parked for up to an hour. This makes planning your journey more of a challenge.

On the other hand drivers with their own charging point can tailor consumption around their journey. Making driving more efficient and even reducing charge time by up to 60%.

Picking your EV home charger

Which charger best suits your car

 

When choosing a charging point it’s important to consider your desired charging time as well as your cars compatibility. Currently there are three charger types available Slow, Fast and Rapid.

All three types have relative power outputs which determine their charging speed. For instance, a slow charger may take 6-12 hours to charge, while a rapid charger could achieve the same in under 30 minutes. 

The most common home charger will have an output of 7 kW and comes with a Type 1 or Type 2 adaptor. However not all cars will support this output which makes it even more important to check your cars requirements.Tthe Nissan Leaf comes with two connectors, a 3-pin to Type 1 and a Type 2  to Type 1, making it compatible with most EV chargers.

The last thing you need to consider is whether you need a Tethered or Untethered charger. Once again this will depend on the type of electric car you own.

Cost of EV charging

The cost of driving an electric car

 

As an electric car driver you have the option of charging at home, at work or via public charging stations. The most popular choice among motorists though is to charge at home as it often works out cheaper and more convenient.

Costing roughly £300- £400 to install and as little as £3 for a single charge, regular commuters are able to make excellent cost savings. Servicing also comes in cheaper at an average of  £99/year and nearly all electric cars come with zero road tax. This makes the average electric car much cheaper to run than the conventional petrol or diesel vehicle.

The Nissan Leaf

A good example is the the Nissan Leaf which  is able to cover around 110 miles off a single charge which averages out at just £3.64 per charge. Costs are kept this low due to competition within the electrical industry which helps to make the average electrical rate only 13p per kWh.
