Electric Charging Solution Perfect for Country Living
As an authorised installer of electric vehicle chargers for the home, Diamond Services was the ideal choice of electrician for a family who had just taken delivery of their brand-new electric car.
Based in the Norfolk countryside, it was essential that the new car owners could charge up their electric vehicle reliably and at speed and so they chose the EO Mini Pro 2 smart charger as the solution to fit their needs.
Diamond Services is just one of a handful of Norfolk based authorised installers for the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) which meant that the family could take advantage of a £350 OZEV (Office for Zero Emissions Vehicles) government grant to help fund their installation costs. The process was simple too, with all application paperwork handled by us as part of the service.
The EO Mini Pro 2 is the world’s smallest smart charger which is perfect for the everyday electric vehicle driver. Users are able to monitor and schedule charging sessions using a handy phone app and its discreet wall-mounted charging unit fits in smoothly with your home’s aesthetics. You can also change configurations to allow charging only at certain times and disable access to prevent unauthorised use. The EO is compatible with all plug-in vehicle brands, so it’s the perfect long-term solution with no concerns over whether it will work if you change your car.
Installation of the charging unit was swift and non-disruptive with power fed from the main consumer unit to the chosen location. Diamond Services’ fully qualified electricians have extensive experience in installing electric vehicle charging points and ensure all units are fully tested on completion of the work.
Over 10% of all cars sold last year were either fully electric or plug-in hybrids and with most car manufacturers offering PHEV or fully electric car options, it’s a trend that’s only set to increase in the years to come. The Government’s pledge to ban non-electric new cars from sale from 2030 will also speed-up this adoption across the UK.
By using electric power, you can save big on your running costs. It can cost as little as 4p per mile compared with 9p per mile for a traditional petrol vehicle*. With zero emissions along with road-tax and company car Benefit In Kind tax incentives, an electric car helps you do your bit for the environment as well as your pocket. Take advantage of the Government’s grant-funded scheme to have the convenience of charging at home. For further information, read more about our EV Charging Stations.
