Next Steps:

  • Choose a Location: Selecting the location of your charger will allow you to understand the electrical infrastructure and to plan the type, size, availability and model required. There are many items to consider when choosing the location. Does the building have a single of 3 phase supply, where is the E.V parking spaces in relation to the electrical switch room and will we allow public access. The location can be as important as choosing the car.
  • Access & Security: How will your organisation control access to the electric charger? Who will be using the charger? and how will we control unauthorised vehicles from connecting? Unless your building is manned 24/7, the security of your charger will have to be considered. Many chargers are supported by an app where electricity can only be drawn by holding the correct permissions. Choose a solution that meets your security requirements.
  • Single or 3 Phase: As technology improves and electric vehicles become more sophisticated, the battery is only likely to increase in size. Its maybe time to consider the size of your charger. A standard Tesla Model 3 has a 50kw Battery. A single-phase charger is restricted to 7kw therefore to fully charge the Model 3 will take more than 7 hours. With a 3 phase supply the charger starts at 22kw and will take less than 3 hours to charge your 50kw vehicle. Should your location allow, choose 3 phase.

Then you will have your E.V charging port for any electric car to come along, and be taking the steps towards a greener future.
