Electric charging for cars, vans, motorcycles and scooters

Electric cars – EV charging solutions

Car dealerships and manufacturers can currently get grants to reduce the price you pay for brand new electric and hybrid vehicles. You don’t need to do anything if you want to buy one of these vehicles – the dealer will include the value of the grant in the vehicle’s price. Not all electric or hybrid vehicles are eligible for a grant – only vehicles that have been approved by the government. There are 6 categories of vehicle, based on CO2 emissions. The grant depends on which category the vehicle is in.

EV Motorbikes and scooters

We supply and install charging units for electric motor cycles and scooters.

If your motor cycle or scooter has a standard plug connection we can still install a dedicated circuit to supply this outlet.

A new dedicated circuit and outlet will minimise the risk of stress and overloading to the existing circuits which can cause fire. A new circuit will also insure your charging outlet has suitable RCD protection for the user.
