The installation of a dedicated electric car charging unit is a straight forward task. For an ev-pow Associate.
The Type-2 unit will need to be hard-wired into your existing property fuse board on a dedicated line, and then mounted in a suitable location near your car parking location. Most single domestic installations can be completed within a day, with ev-pow Associates being extremely aware to ensure the quality of the finished installation and any areas that may be affected by the installed equipment.
The legal bit.
In accordance with French and Swiss laws, the installation of all Type-2 EV Charge Points must be performed by an IRVE certified professional Electrician. The unit must also be installed on a dedicated direct electrical supply from your primary fuse box, complete with Type-A RCBO breaker.
All ev-pow Associates are IRVE certified and we therefore happy to complete the full installation service for you.
Alternatively, you can choose to purchase an EV Charge Point from ev-pow.com and then select your own trusted and certified Electrician to complete the instal.
Or, if you have already purchased your charger, we can assist you with a legal and safe installation service.
