Electric vehicle charging in Ilkeston

Electric vehicle charging in Ilkeston, Derby

Over the last decade there has been a dramatic increase in the amount of electrical vehicles that are on the roads. In 2010, there were only 138 electrical cars registered in the UK. In 2018, this had grown to 59,945 electrical vehicles, and by February 2021 this number had ballooned to 215,000 pure-electric cars and over 455,000 plug-in vehicles (including hybrids). Electrical vehicles are the future with the ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel vehicles coming into effect in 2030. By having an electric vehicle (EV) charging point installed on your domestic or commercial property, you can make your first steps into a clean energy future while also reducing your fuel consumption and bills!

At Fletch Electrical Ltd, we specialise in the installation of EV charging stations at any domestic or commercial properties in Derby, the East Midlands and the rest of the UK. There are many advantages to having an EV charging station installed on your property. Firstly, it greatly reduces your own carbon footprint, meaning that you are doing your bit for the environment!

Furthermore, if you have any renewable energy sources on your property - such as solar panels - your EV charging system can be connected to this which can further help to reduce your energy bills. In some cases, your car can be refueled completely from your renewable energy sources.

As the popularity of electrical vehicles increases, the efficiency of this technology also improves. In 2010, a standard EV had a 60kWh battery that would take up to 12 hours to fully charge. Now, your car can be fully recharged in less than 8 hours - perfect for when you are working or asleep! Moreover, with the rapid development of EVs and their technology, these types of vehicles are as efficient as their petrol and diesel counterparts, and will soon become the dominant type of vehicle on the road.

OLEV Grants for Domestic Customers

As an OLEV-approved installer, we can help you to apply for an OLEV grant if you are eligible. OLEV grants provide a 75% contribution to the cost of one chargepoint and its installation. There are several requirements that you have to meet in order to be eligible for an OLEV grant. This includes:

  • You must have purchased an OLEV-eligible electric car or plug-in hybrid vehicle.
  • You must have off-street parking where the charging cable will not cross a public pavement.
  • The charger must be OLEV-approved.
  • The installer must be OLEV-approved.

At Fletch Electrical Ltd, we can install any OLEV-approved charger on your property. The benefit of the OLEV grant is that it is applied for by the installer, rather than the customer. This means that we can apply for the grant for you and we will only charge you for the cost of the installation minus the value of the OLEV grant, saving you the hassle of having to go through the application process yourself! If you would like to find out more about the OLEV grant scheme, follow this link.

At Fletch Electrical Ltd, we can offer expert advice on what type of charging station would best suit your needs. We can also help you to reduce your energy bills and carbon footprint by advising you on what renewable energy sources can be combined with your EV charging station.
