More and more people are turning to electric vehicles (EVs) to reduce their carbon footprint by installing Electric Car charging points.

The majority of EV owners use a home charging point to charge their cars. But what exactly is an EV home charger and what are its benefits?

It’s a common misconception that EVs are difficult to charge. In fact, charging an EV couldn’t be easier.

The majority of EV owners rely on a home electric vehicle charging point to give their EV the energy it needs. These chargers are installed at your home and are connected to your energy supply. You can install these devices close to where you park your car, such as at the end of your driveway, and then connect them with your vehicle via an electric vehicle charging cable.

In general, EV home chargers charge at a rate of around 7kWh – twice as fast as a conventional 3-pin plug – so you can charge your car overnight and have it ready to go the next day.

In the UK, most EV drivers take advantage of this convenience.


EV charging is the process of giving power to an electric car’s battery so that it can be stored and used while driving later. It is similar to refilling a car, but this time, it is to make sure the battery has enough power to keep going.

In most cases, you can charge your electric vehicle at home or at a public charging station. Some workplaces and apartment buildings now provide EV charging facilities for their residents, tenants, or customers. 

Typically, charging stations are categorized based on charging speed and charging level, but they all serve the same purpose in general. In apartment buildings and private properties, Level 2 chargers are typically used for residential EV charging. Additionally, a Level 2 charger can be installed in your home to charge EVs faster than a Level 1 charger. 

Home charging is better for your battery health 

Even though public chargers are faster, they can damage your battery more than home charging. Rapid charging leads to battery degradation because it raises the temperature too quickly. If you want to delay battery degradation as much as possible, use home chargers more. Since you’re already at home, it’s hardly an issue that the battery fills up slower.

Installing home chargers may result in cost savings

A number of governments are offering incentives for homeowners who install home chargers in order to encourage the adoption of electric vehicles. In some cases, you might qualify for more than one, perhaps from the federal, state, and local governments, depending on where you live. Half or more of the cost might be deducted.

In electric vehicles, charging them is as simple as plugging them in and waiting for their batteries to reach their desired levels, giving you enough mileage to go where you want. Prospective electric car buyers often worry about the availability of charging points for their cars.

The best way to charge your electric vehicle is to install a dedicated charger. This charger provides three times as much power, so it charges the entire battery within a few hours.

A Workplace Charging Scheme (WGS) could be useful if you don’t currently have an electric vehicle charging point on your premises. As part of the WGS, a contribution of £300 per socket – up to a maximum of 20 sockets – is provided towards the purchase and installation of electric vehicle chargers.

Domestic Benefits of EV Charger Installation


You can make your EV even more eco-friendly by charging it at home. If you choose a renewable energy tariff, you'll avoid the carbon emissions that arise from public charging stations

The ability to charge more quickly

EVs can be charged at home using a standard 3-pin plug, but they provide slower charging speeds than a home charging point. EV charging requires a high amount of current, which is why standard 3-pin 240V plugs are not recommended for long-term charging.

A convenient method

As we have already mentioned, EV charging points at home are incredibly convenient. With one installed at home, you can charge your car whenever it's idle, so most motorists can wake up every morning with a fully charged battery. You can be assured that you'll have more than enough power to navigate the day when you know most EVs have ranges that are far greater than the average daily commute of motorists.
