What type of Electric Vehicle Charging Point are you installing?

You, or your Charge Point Installer need to think about the type of charger you want to connect and whether you have enough power available at your home or business. 
Read our help and advice on installing Electric Vehicle Charging Points.

1. Installing small chargers at your home or business (where the total demand is less than 70kVA)

For example:

  • Slow (3kW) or fast (7kW) chargers in your home
  • Fast (7kW or 22kW) chargers at your business 

To make it easier for installers, we have created a Smart Connect portal which allows installers to submit applications or notifications for one or multiple new Low Carbon Technologies, at an existing single dwelling/premise (domestic or non-domestic). Smart Connect will automatically assess applications and either issue approval or refer the job to the relevant teams for further assessment. Find out if your installation is eligible to be raised on Smart Connect by visiting our Smart Connect information page.

Alternatively visit our Electric Vehicle (EV) Charge point information page to find out more about the steps you need to follow to install a small charge point.

2. Installing large or multiple chargers (where the total demand is more than 70kVA)

For example:

  • Multiple chargers in your office car park
  • Rapid chargers at your depot,  business or property 
  • Installing rapid (50kW) chargers on the street 

3. Installing slow (3kW) or fast chargers (7kW) on the highway

For example:

  • 3kW Street furniture chargers
  • 3kW, 7kW, or 22kW stand alone chargers on the highway
  • Feeder pillars on the highway that support car parks (up to 70kW total power)

4. Installing a charger capable of providing power back to the network - Vehicle to Grid (V2G)

For example:

  • Domestic V2G Charging
  • Business V2G Charging
  • Fleet V2G Charging
