Every electric car comes with a different-sized battery. The capacity of a battery is measured in kilowatt hours (kWh), which is a measure of the energy storage available. So, to calculate how much it costs to charge your car, you can look at the cost of electricity (either at your home or at a public charging point) and calculate it by the size of your car’s battery.
For Example:
Based on a Electricity rate of 14p per kWh, it would cost around £8 to fully charge a 60kWh Electric car. This would give around 200 miles of range.

The Workplace Charging Scheme is a government scheme from the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) for electric car charge points to be installed at places of work. The Workplace Charging Scheme is available to any business, charity or public authority which has off-street parking. You won’t need to show evidence of the purchase of an electric vehicle, however, you will need to specify why it is needed for the business. You can claim for up to 20 electric car charge points on the Workplace Charging Scheme but you can’t claim for charge points which have already been purchased. The Workplace Charging Scheme is a simple voucher-based system. Step 1: Complete an application form Step 2: If your application is successful, you will receive a voucher code. (N.B. the voucher code is only Step 3: Present the voucher to your OLEV-approved installer. Step 4: The installer will arrange for the electrical car charger point unit to be installed.
Our chargers are installed by qualified electrical installers, they will perform a safety check on your home fuse box before installing to make sure it is up to standard to support home electric vehicle charging. Please contact your Distibution Network Operator (DNO) for full clarification on this.
Please contact us and we’ll be able to perform a survey on your property to ensure this is possible.
Most EV chargers are smart enabled, so you will need to ensure you can detect and connect to your Wi-Fi network at the installation point; you can test this beforehand through your mobile phone. If you cannot connect to your Wi-Fi network you should consider a Wi-Fi booster or an alternative installation location. Once installed, you will then control your smart EV charger through its associated partner app to use the cheapest and greenest electricity available (depending on your energy tariff).
Keeping your electric car fully charged can actually damage its battery. This is due to the heat that recharging generates. If you’re planning a long journey, then do charge your EV to its maximum capacity. However, because most lithium-ion batteries perform best when they’re between 50% and 80% full, we’d advise keeping your EV’s charge somewhere in this range if possible.
Yes, it’s completely safe to leave an electric vehicle charging (or plugged-in) overnight. Charging at night means you can take advantage of off-peak energy tariffs, making it cheaper. Many chargers also let you schedule when to charge, so you can plug your car in once you’re home and leave the unit to start charging when the electricity tariff is at its lowest.
This varies and depends on the vehicle you’re driving, how you drive it, and the conditions you’re driving it in – just like a petrol or diesel vehicle. The distance a single charge can cover is increasing with every new model, as battery technology improves. Today, most electric cars will have a range of over 200 miles. Tesla models can go well over 300 miles on a single charge.
