Frequently asked questions.
Why should I charge my electric car at home?
With your own electric vehicle charging point, you’ve got power when you need it. Don’t waste time driving to a public charging point and waiting for your car to charge. Set it and forget it – with our free award-winning app, you can choose when you want to charge and take advantage of cheaper off-peak rates too. Let your car power up while you power down.
Are there any grants to help with charger costs?
Yes - The Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) is a government team working to support the transition to zero-emission vehicles. They provide a grant of up to £350 (including VAT) towards the cost of buying and installing a home charger. You’re eligible for an EV charger grant if you own or use an electric vehicle, you live in a flat or rent your home and you have your own private off-street parking space.
What’s included in a standard installation?
No two installations are exactly the same, so to start with we give you a basic price for a charger with standard installation, where all of the following apply:
The charger and electricity meter:
have no more than 2 walls between them
need max 10m cable to connect them
cables run straight through walls and are surface mounted, up to 1.8m high
Your electricity meter is indoors or there's somewhere suitable indoors to install charger protection equipment
Your Wi-Fi has a strong enough signal to connect to
Single-phase installation (standard in most UK homes)
The charger will be mounted on a brick or plaster wall, with private off-street parking
It will take 4 hours or less to install
Not sure if all of these apply to you? Don't worry, we'll go through them all on the video survey call and we'll send you a personalised price afterwards.
Your distribution network operator (DNO) or electricity supplier (if you're not supplied by E.ON Next) may need to carry out extra work. These costs won't be covered in our quote and you'll be responsible for paying them.
Do I need to be an E.ON Next customer?
No - anyone can get a charger quote from us. It doesn't matter who supplies your energy, we can still install a charger for you (though why wouldn't you want to be with us?)
Can't I just charge my car from a regular wall socket?
Well, you can, but we wouldn't recommend it. A wall socket isn't as powerful as a dedicated electric vehicle charger, so it would take much longer to charge your car this way. There's also safety to consider - our electric vehicle chargers are built to withstand all weather conditions so you don't have to worry about charging in the rain.
I’m worried someone might use my charger while I’m at work. Is it secure?
Yes, we only install smart chargers which can be locked using our free E.ON Home app. So don't worry, your charger is safe and secure, even when you're not around.
