Car Charging Ports

Electric cars are now becoming vehicles of choice for their cost-effective and environmentally friendly features. Personal vehicles and company cars are beginning to make the transition over to electric engines, increasing the demand across most manufacturers.

Is an electric car cost effective?

Electric cars are cheaper to run in comparison to petrol or diesel vehicles. Yearly, they cost less to own and maintain, as damages and manufacturing input are usually reduced. Charging a medium sized electric car, from home, can cost between £500-700 annually, offering a cost-effective alternative. On a daily basis, electric cars are also an affordable option, as the price of petrol continues to increase/fluctuate. Although electric vehicles are more expensive to buy outright, their features make up for it.

Also boasting the benefits of environmentally friendly features, sustainable designs, energy efficient manufacturing, and higher performance, electric cars are increasing in popularity.

Due to their demand, and expected widespread adoption, being prepared for this change over is important. With our car charging ports and solutions, you can be prepared to own, run, and maintain your vehicle.

Also beneficial for workplaces and public areas, charging solutions are necessary to make EV cars a functional choice.

Charging your electric car at home or at work

There are different types of charging ports, with various embedded features to select from. All depending on the usability and manufacturer of your electric car, your needs will vary.

At D.R Electrical, we can help you install a domestic charging port, to home outside of your property. We can also design and roll out a full system of electrical charging solutions, to benefit a workplace or heavy footfall area.

Offering adaptability, reliability and full functionality, a high-quality design will help to benefit from the features and lifespan of electric cars.

From rapid chargers and charging points with a high capacity, to a complete infrastructure, supportive of consistent charging activity and demand, we have a range of solutions to ease your daily maintenance.

Usually taking 8 hours to charge the average electric car, installing a smart charger or even a charging network can help to efficiently run your vehicle. See our solutions below, and the type of features you can expect from car charging ports.

Our car charging ports and solutions

Charging ports are designed to meet individual needs. The location of a charging port, a car’s maximum charging rate, and the make can all influence the design of our solutions.

Some of our solutions offer universal sockets, to cater to various car models and makes. Others are designed to use an electric car lead, meaning that only specific makes can utilise charging ports.

For home installation, smaller charging ports are usually offered, to provide energy efficient solutions. Public charging ports are much larger, with up to 22kW units, to keep up with demand and speed.

Pod Point charging infrastructures and networks are a popular choice for installation here at D.R Electrical. Adaptable and cost-effective, smart home charging, workplace and commercial charging ports can be installed and maintained through Pod Point designs.

To contribute to the costs of car charging ports and solutions, an OZEV (Office of Zero Emissions Vehicles) grant can be applied for. For home charging, the initial cost can be subsidised by 75%. Through the workplace charging scheme, a voucher-based compensation can be used to roll out an electrical vehicle charging system. Both schemes aim to increase the uptake of electrical cars and charging ports, for environmentally friendly and sustainable transport.
