EV Charger Installation Process
in 6 Steps

EV charging Installation is a significant step towards embracing sustainable transportation. In this comprehensive guide, we outline the intricate process involved in setting up your very own EV charging point, ensuring safety, efficiency, and convenience.

Step 1:

Electrician's Arrival

The installation journey begins with the timely arrival of a professional electrician or a team at your doorstep. Upon arrival, they’ll introduce themselves and initiate the process, ensuring clear communication and understanding from the outset.

Step 2:

Choosing the Charger Location

Selecting the optimal location for your EV charger installation is necessary. Whether it’s on an external wall, inside the garage, or on the driveway, factors such as accessibility, cable length, and safety regulations come into play. The distance between the charger and the car’s socket should be less than 5 meters, minimizing cable length and ensuring efficient charging. 

Precautions must be taken to prevent accidental collisions with the charging point. Some EV chargers require the installation of an earth rod for enhanced safety. While this requirement is becoming less common, if needed, the electrician will identify a suitable location for the earth rod installation, ensuring compliance with regulations.

Step 3:

Cable Run Considerations

The ‘cable run’ refers to the path and distance the electrical cable traverses from the charger to the fuse box. It’s imperative to keep this distance under 15 meters for a standard installation, avoiding additional costs. During this phase, the electrician will discuss feasible routes for the cable, addressing visibility concerns and potential obstructions.

Step 4:

Fuse Box Inspection

Simultaneous to assessing the cable run, the electrician inspects the fuse box for compatibility and available space. Clearing the area around the fuse box beforehand facilitates easy access, streamlining the installation process. If required, the electrician may install a separate fuse box, commonly referred to as a ‘garage board,’ to accommodate the charger trip switch/RCBO.

Step 5:

Drilling and Clipping

With the groundwork laid, the electrician proceeds to drill into the designated wall for charger installation. This step not only secures the charger but also facilitates cable routing. The thick electrical cable is then securely clipped along the cable run, ensuring stability and minimising the risk of damage. In cases where additional drilling is necessary to reach the fuse box, the electrician provides upfront information regarding associated costs.

Step 6:

Testing and Setup

Modern EV charging points often require internet connectivity for optimal performance. The electrician configures the charger’s connectivity, either via SIM card or home broadband, facilitating remote monitoring and control. Additionally, assistance is provided in downloading and configuring the charger’s smartphone app, empowering users to manage charging schedules and settings effortlessly.

It is essential to engage an approved electrician for the installation of your EV chargepoint. Depending on the provider, the cost of EV charger installation may already be integrated into the charger’s price. Additional work may be necessary in some cases to facilitate home EV charger installation. If standard installation is not inclusive, it is advisable to request a comprehensive upfront quote.

Only a qualified and competent electrician who possesses the requisite qualifications can install an EV charger. They must hold a certification for chargepoint installation and be registered with the Competent Person Scheme. Many EV charger providers offer installation services as part of the purchase package.

The charging speed of your EV at home is contingent upon your car’s maximum charge acceptance rate and the specifications of your charger. Most residences can accommodate charging at up to 7.4kW, typically allowing for overnight charging while you sleep. Cord EV chargers typically operate at 7.4kW. Public charge points often offer faster charging capabilities due to utilising a different charging method (DC), which is typically unavailable at home.

While charging your EV at home incurs costs based on your electricity tariff and the charging time, numerous free public charging points are available throughout the UK. Supermarkets, such as Tesco, offer over 600 charging points nationwide. Moreover, many hotels provide complimentary charging points for guests, and workplaces increasingly install EV charging points for employee use.

Absolutely, it’s possible to install an EV charger at your residence. If you have a driveway, setting up a 3.5kW or 7kW charger typically takes only a few hours and usually doesn’t necessitate any modifications to your existing power supply.
