What is a Standard Installation for EV chargers?

12th May 2019 Smart Home Charge

Each property and customer is different when it comes to electric car chargers for the home. Charger type, location and cable length are just some of the factors that determine whether a Standard Installation is applicable.

At Smart Home Charge, we want to make sure there are no delays to your installation and that there are no surprise costs on the day. This is why we carry out a pre-installation survey to check if your property is suitable for a Standard Installation.

You can read about what our pre-installation survey is and why it’s important here.
