Electric Car Charger Installation

The Brief:

Known throughout the North Essex area as a company that always completes electric car charger installation projects to the highest standards, it came as no surprise when we were approached by a client looking for an electric car charger installation on his home property. Wanting to reduce his carbon footprint, the client had decided to switch from his petrol-fueled vehicle and was in the process of buying his first-ever electric car.  

To further reduce the carbon footprint of his family’s Great Bentley home, the client was also considering solar panel installation on his property in the near future, so wanted the electric car charger installation to be able to get maximum value from his future greener energy supply.

The Solution:

To meet the client’s requirements of having an electric car charging installation outcome that would work best with solar energy, we opted to install Zappi. We chose a Zappi charging point as we firmly believe they are one of the leading brands that get the maximum amount of energy from solar panel installation, as well as controlling when is the most efficient time of day to charge the electric car. The materials for the installation were supplied by CEF in nearby Colchester.

After agreeing on a quote of £1100 for the electric car charging installation, our team got to work. The installation was relatively simple as the consumer unit was located on an external wall. This meant all our team had to do to ensure the electric car charging installation was in the position the client requested was use some armoured cabling and clip to the chosen position.

The Outcome:

After completing this electric car charging installation in just 4 hours, the client had an electric charging point for his soon-to-own electric vehicle in the exact position he wanted it. Depending on the exact model of the electric vehicle the client buys, he can expect the Zappi charger to fully charge the vehicle between 4-8 hours (based on the new electric vehicle charging on a 7kw charger, which is the norm).

The client was over the moon with the end result of our electric car charger installation and will now benefit from an electric car charging point situated on his own drive, allowing him to join millions of others around the world in lowering his carbon footprint by switching to an electric vehicle.
