Electrical vehicle car charging points for business
Supplying your employees with electric vehicles is a cost-effective way of offering company cars as charging units are inexpensive to run and require minimal servicing. Providing electric company cars is a great way of demonstrating your environmental credentials to clients. It is also a move worth considering as you plan for the future as the government continues to place pressure on businesses to become more environmentally friendly.
For a business offering its employees electric company cars, the installation of charging points is essential. Our accredited and approved engineers can help you to fit your new charging points and can install multiple EV chargers in one visit to minimise downtime for your business.
Where we can install commercial EV chargers
Whether you have underground parking or multiple EV chargers to install, the Heath Electricals team are able to help with your installation. Here are just a few examples of where we can install your commercial EV chargers:
Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS)
The Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS) is a government-funded initiative available for eligible businesses to partially cover the upfront costs of purchasing and installing EV chargers. The scheme is voucher-based, and you can apply using the application form that is provided on the government website.
However, it must be noted that if you choose to take part in this scheme, you are expected to use approved charging points, the full list of which is available on the government website. We are able to install many of the charging points on the approved list, including all of those shown in the section below.
Some of the brands we install
As professional electricians with years of experience under our belts, we have worked with many EV charging brands over the years. Our team are well trained and accredited to help you with your installation and work with many popular, well-known charging brands. Below are just a few examples of the brands we can help you to install.
Who can install commercial EV chargers?
Only Office for Low Emission (OLEV) recognised installers can fit EV chargers for government grants. Many manufacturers of EV chargers will only recognise trained, registered engineers to install and maintain their products. Heath Electrical Services work in partnership with major manufacturers and undergo regular training to advise on and supply a wide range of products, including the most efficient and popular EV chargers.
It is important to make sure that you enlist the help of trained and professional installers, as this ensures that chargers are safe and installed correctly for long-lasting results.
Types of EV chargers
When installing your electrical charging point, you will be able to choose between three main types; these are rapid, fast and slow.
Rapid chargers can be found at motorway service stations and other public locations due to their fast-charging capabilities. The best example of a rapid charging unit is the Tesla Super Charger, which is designed to completely charge your vehicle in as little as 20 minutes.
It is possible for fast chargers to be installed on your commercial premises, which will allow your staff to charge their vehicle in a few hours while they are at work. The time it will take for a full charge will depend on the vehicle and the rating of the charging point.
Slow chargers take anywhere between 6 and 12 hours to charge an EV, making them most popular amongst those who prefer to charge their vehicle overnight. For this reason, slow chargers are less likely to be used for commercial properties.
