Most homes have single phase 230V supplies meaning the maximum power of chargers suitable are 7kw/32amps. Chargers are supplied by a 6mm cable wired directly from your fusebox/consumer unit and must be on their own dedicated circuit. Depending on the condition and capacity of your fusebox/consumer unit an additional unit may need to be installed to supply the electric vehicle circuit. A 32A charger will give 30 miles of range per hour, the size of your cars battery will determine how long it will take to charge, the industry leading Tesla Model 3 will take around 8 hours from empty.
Suppliers now offer great EV tariffs with money saving incentives, scheduled charging enables the car to be plugged in and set to charge between pre-set times like midnight and 7am to charge when the EV tariff gives the lowest price of electricity. This requires a smart meter to be fitted by your supplier. A full electric Hyundai Ioniq costs much less to run than than an equivalent petrol or diesel saloon, at around £4.80 to charge from empty to full with a range of 193 miles, costing only 2.94p per mile (based on 14p/kWh tariff).
9/10 customers go for tethered - a built in lead - as it is more convenient and allows you to keep your spare lead in the boot to use when you are away from home. Some clients prefer to have untethered - socket only - as they find the coiled leads untidy when not in use, it's a matter of personal taste and what suits you.
Some chargers still require an earth rod, such as the EO Mini Pro. Most chargers now have internal PEN fault protection that removes the requirement for an earth rod. If you chose an EO there is a protective device called a Matt:e that is installed beside your consumer unit that does the job of an earth rod. We do not have to dig any holes for a rod in your driveway.
Your new car doesn't need to be ready on your driveway to have a charger installed. Proof of an order form from a dealership and/or letter from your workplace if being used as a company car is enough to begin the process and installation. You must also have designated off-street parking such as driveway or an allocated space.

These track the wholesaler price of electricity throughout the day. Where electricity supply is greater than demand (often a result of renewable energy sources), plunge moments can occur where you will get paid to charge your EV. Ohme smart charging integrates perfectly with Agile tariffs allowing you to chase lowest cost charging and benefit from plunge moments.
