Owning an electric vehicle (EV) is a smart choice for the environment and your wallet. To make the most of your EV, installing a home charging point is a game-changer. It’s not only convenient but also boosts your EV experience significantly. Let’s dive into why you should consider setting up a charger at home and how it can make your life easier.

Why Install a Home Charging Point?

Convenience: Charge overnight and wake up to a fully charged EV every morning. No more detours to public charging stations.

Cost-Effective: Charging at home can be cheaper than public stations, especially if you use off-peak electricity tariffs.

Increased Home Value: Homes with EV charging points are often more attractive to buyers and renters, potentially increasing your property value.

Choosing the Right Charger

Level 1 Chargers: These plug into standard outlets. Perfect for overnight charging, though slower than Level 2 chargers.

Level 2 Chargers: Faster charging, requiring a 240V outlet. Ideal for those needing quicker charge times.

Installation Basics

  1. Choose Your Charger: Decide between Level 1 and Level 2 based on your needs.

  2. Hire a Professional: For safety and compliance, get a certified electrician to do the installation.

  3. Check for Rebates: Many areas offer incentives for home charger installations. It’s worth looking into to save money.

Tips for a Smooth Installation

  • Assess Your Electrical System: Ensure your home can support the charger, especially if opting for a Level 2.

  • Pick the Right Spot: Ideally, install your charger where your EV parks regularly, like your garage or driveway.

  • Future-Proof: Consider your future EV needs. Installing a more powerful charger now might save upgrading costs later.


Installing a home charging point for your EV is a smart move that pays off in convenience and savings. With the right preparation and professional help, you can enjoy the benefits of home charging and make your EV journey smoother and more enjoyable. Elevate your EV experience today by setting up your own home charging station.
