Electric Car Charging


Professional Installation Support:

Electric car charging points need to be professionally installed. A certified charging provider will include installation cost in the price of the unit.  Somerset EPS offer this service to domestic and commercial clients.

Installation of the charge point is usually undertaken on an exterior wall or garage, this will be near to where the car is parked.  It is connected safely to the mains electricity supply

Installation is usually undertaken within 4 hours, this depends on location, complexity and individual requirements.

Installations can be booked through Somerset EPS.  Steve Eastick, Somerset EPS Director, is certified to install EV points (OLEV grant approved) and can provide advice regarding all installations.
