Upfront prices

OUR WEBSITE PRICES ARE A GUIDE

The prices on our website are based on the simplest installation and represent the minimum cost for any installation, but your final quote will depend on a number of factors including:

  1. Cable length - how much extra cable is required to connect your charger to the mains.
  2. Extra equipment - some installations require extra equipment.
  3. Complexity - depending on the cable route, labour costs and other factors.

We provide an Instant Quote service, which means you get an accurate quote based on the information you provide us just moments after you complete our enquiry form. All without the need for a physical or remote site survey!

Simply select "Request a Quote" on your preferred charger, answer a few questions, and we'll email you a quote.

Monthly prices

SPREAD THE COST

If the upfront cost of an EV charger installation is a bit tough to swallow, why not spread the payments out through our monthly finance option?

RFID cards included

+

Don't like using an app? Not a problem! The waEV-charge EV1 comes with an RFID card, which you can tap on the charge point's reader to stop and start a charging session.

WiFi and Bluetooth

+

The waEV-charge EV1 incorporates both Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity, giving you control over charge scheduling, as well as enabling over-the-air updates that improve reliability and add features.

In addition, Bluetooth is an excellent back-up to connect to your EV1 in the event your WiFi is temporarily unavailable.

Built-in earthing protection

+

Thanks to a technology called O-PEN fault detection, the waEV-charge EV1 does not require a the installation of an earth rod at your property.

7kW charging output

+

The waEV-charge EV1 is capable of 7kW charging, which roughly adds 30 miles of range per hour to your vehicle.

To check the charging speeds your vehicle is capable of, visit our EV vehicle database.

Cyber Security compliant

+

The waEV-charge EV1 meets the latest standard in EV charger cyber security regulations, which came into force on 31st December 2022. 

It means the EV1 has anti-tamper detection and all-round better data security. Learn more about the regulations in our EV charger cyber security guide.

Three year warranty as standard

+

The waEV-Charge EV1 comes with a three year warranty as standard.

Smart charging controls

Using the innovative EV.Energy app, you can access a range of smart charging features including scheduling, tariff integration and even rewards.

Smart scheduling

+

The ev.energy app helps you optimise your charging schedules to keep costs low, or even charge when the grid is "greener".

Simply choose the time you want your vehicle charged by and let the ev.energy app do the rest. You can even set a price limit for off-peak charging, ensuring your car doesn't charge outside your off-peak electricity rate if you have one.

Reward points

+

The waEV-charge EV1 is built to work with EV.Energy, a charging app that rewards you with points for every time you smart charge.

Every time you charge over 10kWh using the smart charge feature you'll earn reward points, which you can then spend on Amazon vouchers, carbon off-setting or money off your energy bill.

Energy tariff integration

+

Select your energy tariff within the ev.energy app to accurately track the cost of your charge sessions and get detailed reports on the type of energy that was used to charge your vehicle.

Energy usage reports

+

Get detailed charging statistics of your charging history, over the past day, month or year and spot trends overtime.

Lock your charging point

+

Worried about someone plugging into car charger while you're away? Simply tap the lock button on the ev.energy app to prevent anyone from using your charger.

waEV-charge EV1 FAQ

Can I order a 22kW version of the waEV-charge EV1?

+

No, the waEV-charge EV1 is single phase (7.4kW max) only. Please keep in mind however that 7.4kW charging is more than enough for most EVs and that most residential properties cannot facilitate 22kW charging - find out why in our guide to 22kW three-phase charging.

Installation FAQs

Will my property need works or upgrades to the electricity supply before installation of an EV charge point?

+

Many customers will not need any upgrades to their electricity supply before having an EV charger installed. All installers are however required to notify the local Distribution Network Operator (DNO) of any EV charger installations, who will advise you and us if an upgrade to your property’s main fuse is necessary. This depends on your property’s “maximum demand” estimate, (which is submitted by our in-house technicians to your DNO as part of our process), the size of the main fuse or if your property is on a looped supply (connected to your neighbour). Any potential works will be handled by your DNO and they will contact you directly if this is the case.

How do I get a quote for my EV charger installation?

+

If you have an EV or plug-in hybrid, or have one on order, then you are ready to get a charger installation quote. Simply choose the electric car charger you like the look of and select "Request a Quote" at the top of this page. Don't worry if you're not 100% sure on the charger - there will be time to swap this before payment if your change your mind.

Why isn’t my quote the same as the price on the website?

+

Every installation is unique, which is why we ask you to complete our remote Online Site Survey. We need to properly assess the work involved in order to give you an accurate and honest quote. Our website prices are meant to be a guide and show the minimum cost for an installation of each particular charger. So, that means the quote we email to you may be different to the price on the website.

How long will it be until my EV charger is installed?

+

Typically this is one to four weeks after payment. The main factors that affect your installation date are your remote site survey completion time and whether your DNO needs to complete any upgrades to your electricity supply before we install your charger. We keep you updated at each stage of the process, but you can help keep things moving by completing your remote site survey quickly.

My car isn’t listed on your website. Does that mean I can’t get a charger installation from Smart Home Charge?

+

You can still get an installation from us even if you can’t find your vehicle on our website. Simply “Request a Quote” for the charger you like and tell us which vehicle you have in the quote form. Our EV database is updated regularly but are not meant to be a definitive guide – there are simply too many new EVs and plug-in hybrids being launched for us to keep up!

Do you install EV charge points in my area?

+

Smart Home Charge is a nationwide installer, covering England, Scotland and Wales. We have experienced engineers covering all major cities and regions. Find out if we install EV chargers in your area with our location checker.

Will you set up my charge point app?

+

Yes. Our engineers will complete the initial setup and pairing of the charger app with the charge point itself as this is considered as part of the installation. However, the engineers are not required to demonstrate how the app works or set up any schedules for you. Visit our EV charger support section for useful tips and troubleshooting.

Will you process my OZEV Grant claim?

+

As OZEV-approved installers, we are able to help you apply for the EV Chargepoint Grants supplied by the Government landlords, renters, workplace and more. Our team will assess your eligibility for the grant and work with you to supply the right evidence to the Government in order to claim the grant. Your installation will not be booked until we have all the required documentation to submit your claim to the Government.

However, as an installer Smart Home Charge does not approve or reject your claim and a successful charger installation does not mean your claim was approved. It can take up to three months post installation for confirmation of approval or rejection of your claim from the Government.

Fantastic professional and very informative service from all the team at Smart Home Charge complimented by Sean, the engineer who installed my charger. From start to finish the whole proces...s was easy, stress free and my charger was installed in 2 weeks from ordering. All questions I had prior to placing an order were answered quickly, I was kept updated with the progress for an installation date and my engineer arrived on time, he was very helpful and all went smoothly. I would highly recommend this company and thank them for my first home charger experience to be such a good one.
