How do you charge an electric car at home?

To charge an electric car at home, you will need a home charging point installed where you park your electric car, or an EVSE supply cable for a 3 pin plug socket as an occasional back up.

    • Drivers usually choose a dedicated home charging point because it’s faster and has built-in safety features.
    • A home charging point is a compact weatherproof unit that mounts to a wall with a connected charging cable or a socket for plugging in a portable charging cable.
    • Dedicated home charging points are installed by qualified specialist installers like Pod Point.
    • Electric car drivers get a £500 grant for purchasing and installing a home charger with the OLEV grant.
    • Once installed, you only pay for the electricity you use to charge.
    • The typical electricity rate in the UK is about 14p per kWh, while on Economy 7 tariffs the typical overnight electricity rate in the UK is 8p per kWh.
