Frequently Asked Questions

A.  After completing the survey, we’ll be in touch with next steps and any other information you need to know, including if there are any additional works and associated costs you need to be aware of.  Additional works may be needed to ensure the safe and efficient installation of an EV charger at home, considering factors such as circuit installation, location and safety measures. These works could include:


1. Gas & Water Earth Bonding: Bonding is required for safety purposes and is a proactive measure to protect against electrical hazards. It is standard practice in the UK for any electrical installation work. If the property has plastic gas or water pipes, bonding may not be required, as plastic is not a conductor of electricity. However, this should be assessed by a qualified electrician.


Gas & Water Earth Bonding works are necessary for several reasons:


Prevents Electric Shocks: Bonding connects all exposed conductive parts that are not intended to carry electricity, such as gas, oil and water pipes, to a common grounding point. This ensures that, in the event of a fault, there is a safe path for the electrical current to follow, significantly reducing the risk of electric shocks.
Reduces Electrical Fire Risk: Proper bonding ensures that any electrical faults do not cause a potential fire hazard by passing current through the metal structures of a building.
Compliance with Regulations: The UK wiring regulations, known as the BS7671, require bonding for all electrical installations, including EV chargers, to ensure safety and compliance. Our electricians can not complete a job without bonding being in place. 
Safety for Installers and Residents: Electricians must verify that appropriate bonding is in place before proceeding with the installation. This protects both the installers and the residents from electrical hazards.

2. Additional Cable: We provide 15 meters of cable to set up an EV charge point. Additional cable may be required in order to connect your charging unit to the main supply if you choose to place your EV charger away from your property (for example on your external garage that's separate from your house).

3. Civil works: If you do decide to mount your charger in a separate building away from your main property (for example a separate external garage), civils works such as trenching, concrete bases, or other groundwork may be necessary to facilitate the installation of your EV charger.

4. Additional Labour: Extra labour may be required to assist in the completion of the EV charge point.


Every installation we do is tailored to fit the needs of each home, ensuring your EV charging is both smooth and safe. Simply book online, and we'll have one of our qualified team members arrange a survey visit.
