EV Home Chargers

From EV chargers to grants and incentives, Harkins and Vickers have extensive knowledge to help you, or your business reduce their carbon footprint and make the switch to electrical vehicles.

EV Charge Points

The need for electronic vehicle charge points has expectedly risen hand-in-hand with the popularity of electronic vehicles. At H&V we wholly support the shift towards a greener and more sustainable society for us all.

Businesses, governments, and individuals alike are now making the switch to electric vehicles whether to meet net-zero targets or simply for practical performance. Whatever your reason is for making the switch to electric vehicles, H&V solutions have the best possible service to help make your transition as seamless as possible.

Why choose us for EV charge points?

At H&V we are extremely passionate about the environment which is why we offset the carbon in our office every month and offer the most environmentally friendly electrical solutions.

We have made a conscious effort to be the best option for commercial and residential EV charge points and have obtained OLEV and EST accreditation. Being OLEV certified means we have been officially recognised by a government body as an approved and preferred installer of electronic vehicle charge points.

We have also been approved by Pod Point to install their industry-leading electronic vehicle charge point technology. The 7KW Pod Point solo home charger is fast, smart and Wi-Fi enabled, allowing you to charge your vehicle 3x faster than a standard 3-pin plug. The added Wi-Fi features allow you to track the progress of your charge and associated costs whilst also allowing you to perform live software updates improving the performance of the charger over time. The Pod Point charger is compatible with all vehicles and comes available with a universal socket or type 2 cable. All Pod Point home solo chargers also come with a free 3-year warranty.

These accreditations allow us to provide our clients and customers with a path to obtaining government-subsidised EV charge point grants, incentives and funding saving you money.

What EV charge point grants and incentives are you eligible for?

We realise that most people in modern society actively try to be as green as possible, however taking steps such as switching to an electric vehicle isn’t always financially feasible. Along with our trusted partner Pod Point, we believe that environmentally friendly travel should be available to everyone and encouraged.

Therefore, we actively help our customers obtain government-funded EVHS grants provided by the Office For Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV). These widely available grants can help renters, landlords, residents and businesses alike obtain funding for EV charge points – contact the team at H&V to see how we could help you by clicking here.

How can you claim these grants and benefits?

If you are looking to install an EV charge point and/or apply for any grants or funding, our team can take you through the entire process from simple advice to the final installation. To begin the process simply contact the H&V team by using our contact form or using the contact details below.
