Hi fellow Bulb members.
We are looking to get an EV in the new year and I’m researching home charging points. I’m interested to hear any recommendations and experiences from other user’s who’ve had charge points installed.
We park in an off-street parking bay adjacent to our property (1.6m between house wall and car). I’ve looked at options from EO Charging, Pod-point, and Tesla. The later is not eligible for the grant.
With regards to what we are interested in:
- Ideally 7kWh to charge as quickly as possible.
- Compatible with most EVs (especially, Tesla or BMW) (Type 2 port seems standard).
- Smart features would be nice, I think this has become a requirement for the grant?
- A tethered charger.
Though, to us cost is a big factor along with who exactly we get to install it and how the installation is organised. Not particularly interested in Solar or Battery compatibility (i.e EO Mini Smart Home) as we don’t have batteries and our PV is to small to charge effectively during the day, just covers home usage and are planning to charge at night on an overnight type tariff.
Any information would be appreciated!
