Increase of fuel costs leads to greater demand for workplace EV chargers

The increase in fuel costs has affected everyone, and with the price already exceeding £2 per litre in some parts of the country, more vehicle owners are looking into the benefits of electric vehicles.

If you already have, or are planning on getting, an electric vehicle than having an electric car charger installed at your property will make your life easier. An EV charging point is not only safer, but it charges 2.5 times quicker than a standard 3 pin plug.  Car charging points can charge an electric vehicle from flat to full in 3.5 – 8 hours (depending on the vehicle and charging point).

PDP Services supply and install EV chargers across Sussex. PDP has seen an increase in demand for EV chargers from both homes and businesses, which will only escalate as more people make the transfer from fossil fuels.

Although the OLEV grant for domestic car chargers ended in March, businesses may be eligible for the Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS). The grant can cover up to 75% of the purchase and installation cost. To find out if your workplace is eligible, visit https://www.gov.uk/guidance/workplace-charging-scheme-guidance-for-applicants#applicant-eligibility.
