What is a standard installation?
The guide price we display online is based on your installation falling within the standard installation criteria shown below. We do this so you have a rough idea of what your installation quote may come to prior to completing a full survey with your installer. If your installation falls outside of a standard install, your installer may recommend additional work and you can expect a higher total price.
Included within a Standard Installation
Up to 10 meters of standard and/or armoured cable routed from the consumer unit (sometimes called a fuse board) to the EV charger.
One hole drilled through your internal wall and one hole drilled through your external wall with cable routed through.
All electrical connections required at the supply and at the chargepoint.
Fitting of an EV charger onto a brick, plaster or permanent structure.
A mini circuit breaker fitted into your consumer unit. (Provided there is a spare way in the consumer unit with adequate RCD protection)
Electrical testing of the Installed EV charger and routed cable.
Provision of a certificate from your industry accredited installer.
Plastic trunking/conduit up to 4m if necessary to conceal interior wiring.
Up to 4 hours of committed labour from your installer.
Some examples where work required may exceed a Standard installation and additional cost may apply.
Where the installation requires more than 10 meters total of standard/armoured cable.
Any additional electrical components needed if the charger cannot be installed into the consumer unit with the already provided mini circuit breaker.
Any groundwork or any work to conceal cables that will result in excessive labour (over 4 hours) required to complete the installation.
Upgrade/replacement of the main fuse as this would result in the local District Network Operator (e.g. Western Power Distribution) needing to be present for the additional work.
Gas and water mains bonding (earthing) must be in place at the property. If this isn’t in place, this would be additional work needed before the installation.
If you want to mount your charger on a post/pedestal rather than an existing wall.
