EV Charging Shrewsbury

A complete guide to charging your electric vehicle

At Princes LHS we specialise in the installation of charging points for homes across Shropshire. Our local engineers are available to advice on the best charge point for your property and provide a high quality installation

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 Shrewsbury you only have access to around 10 public 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.The 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.

  • Princes LHS were brilliant from start to finish. When I contacted them I had received a quote from a rival company that did not appear quite right and really wasn't thought through properly. Princes LHS were the opposite of that. From initial discussions to the fitting process itself (solar PV and a Powerwall 2) everything was done very well and ahead of the agreed schedule. We're now happily producing meaningful power even in the depths of winter & the Powerwall means that we get to use all of it.

  • When Matt came round to discuss solar panels, he really listened to what I was saying, as I wanted a system whereby I could store the solar energy gathered during the day, and then use it when I came home. Whereas other companies told me this was impossible and wanted to sell me geothermal or other technologies, Princes LHS Ltd suggested a battery system, such as those used off-grid. A novel solution.

    I totally recommend them for solar technology

  • We at Grove School had been looking at ways of reducing our energy bills and upon speaking to Simon Lewis at Princes LHS Ltd in Ellesmere, he suggested carrying out a specialised lighting survey to reduce the overall wattage of our existing lighting installation by installing a more efficient type of light fitting with a lower overall wattage.

  • I just wanted to say a very big thanks to the two lovely lads Ryan and Jack who came out yesterday to fit our new bolier. They were very courteous and worked nonstop to ensure that the boiler was up and running for us.

    We have used Princes LHS Ltd in the past for our alarm system and electrics and have always been satisfied. Ryan and Jack are a credit to your company. their professionalism and politeness was very refreshing.
