Electric Vehicle Chargepoints

OLEV authorised installers for Home or Workplace EV chargepoint installations.

How and where to charge your electric vehicles (EV) is a key element to ownership.

Forest Electrical can help you establish EV charging at home or at work, whatever the vehicle make or model, with commitment to our usual high standards of customer service and with the added benefit of a government grant contribution to offset the initial cost.

The OLEV grant offers up to 75% of your installation charge, capped at £500 per chargepoint  for domestic and workplace (up to x20 chargers) installations.

Supply and installation of a standard home charging point is now available from just £350.00 balance payment (subject to grant eligibility and meeting standard installation criteria)

The grant contribution process varies slightly between Home charging and Workplace charging. Click to find out more about the claims process.

Before purchasing an EV chargepoint you should consider the type of chargepoint(s) you require:

  • Wall Mounted unit or Free standing pedestal
  • Tethered or untethered (with or without attached cable) – 5m or 8m cable lengths available
  • Socket type – typically Type 1 or Type 2 depending on vehicle (adapters are available if you change vehicle in the future)
  • Charge rate – Most units now offer a variable charge rate option, allowing standard 3.3kW/16A (for overnight charging or in conjunction with solar PV) or fast charge 7Kw/32A (full charge typically within a few hours-most popular) Alternatively consider superfast charging 22kW/32A 3 phase.
  • Additional features – access locks or fobs, payment options for workplace schemes, monitoring and remote management.

“From the beginning of the order process we had a prompt and professional service in putting our quote together, kept in touch with us throughout our decision making without being pushy and was happy to answer all of our many questions! Not only this, but the price was very reasonable in relation to other quotes we received. Mike Costigan Ltd really appreciate getting your best price on the original quote rather than quoting higher so that it can come down when pushed! Following on from this, the scaffolding sub-contractors were also very good and your Solar PV  installation engineers were fantastic, polite, well presented and hard working. What more can you ask for? Please pass on our thanks to your team”
