3 Reasons to Install an EV Charger at Home

Taken the dive and invested in an electric or hybrid vehicle but are yet to commit to a home EV charger? We’re going to talk you through the 3 biggest benefits to help you make the right decision for you and your home.

Convenience and accessibility

One of the major appeals of a home charge point is that you don’t need to travel anywhere to ‘refuel’. While public EV charging infrastructure is slowly improving, it’s still common to have to make a serious detour from your journey to use a public charging station. And how many times have you made that detour only to find all the charging stations are full? Hanging around waiting for a space to free up before getting plugged in is no one’s idea of efficient travel. 

With an at home EV charger, you can charge whenever is convenient for you. Imagine waking up and knowing your EV is fully charged and ready to go from being plugged in overnight.

Save money by charging at home

Cost is a big consideration when it comes to buying an electric vehicle, as they’re often still more expensive than their petrol or diesel alternatives. 

But once you’ve bought your EV, the running costs are usually much lower and this is even more true when using an at home EV charger rather than relying exclusively on public charging stations. Many utility companies offer special tariffs for EV owners, often giving much lower rates overnight for EV charging.

Environmental impact

EVs are much more environmentally friendly than petrol or diesel vehicles. By installing an EV charger and driving an electric vehicle, you contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution – certainly something to be proud of. 

If your home utilises renewable energy sources such as solar panels, you’ll be reducing your impact on the planet even further when you install a home charger for your electric vehicle. 

EV chargers at home are a no-brainer

If you own an electric car or a hybrid car, now is the perfect time to install a home charging point so you can tap into money-saving benefits and decrease your carbon footprint. The benefits are undeniable, and the sooner you get set up with a home charge system that suits your needs, the sooner you can cash in on the vast range of benefits. 

The global move toward NetZero 2050 means that the uptake of electric vehicles is very important. Here in the UK, petrol and diesel vehicles are being phased out with a full ban on new petrol and diesel vehicles coming into effect by 2030. Drivers looking to invest in future-proof modes of transport are wise to purchase electric and hybrid vehicles and set up home charging systems to support them.
