EV Charging 

Electric Vehicle Charging points 

Electric vehicles are becoming more common place and the government is encouraging drivers to move over to Electric and Go Green. 

The benefits of using an approved installer for your EV point? 

It is possible to charge your electric car using a standard 3-pin plug, however it is not recommended, and it can take up to 12 hours to get the car fully charged. 
First Light Electrical Services are your local Rolec Approved installers 

What do I need for a fast-charging point at home? 

There are various options for chargers, the best option for each property will depend on the capacity available on the existing installation, get in touch and we will arrange a free site survey, we can then make recommendations for a charger best suited. 
A 7Kw charger will charge your electric car 3 times faster than a 3-pin plug. 

How long does it take to install an EV charger? 

Our well-trained electricians can install a standard EV point at your home in about 2-4 hours, but this can depend on the location of the charging point and where the electrical supply is located. Using a competent installer means your EV charging point will be installed to Electrical Safety Standards.
