What does a standard EV charger installation with Octopus include?

Remote survey

We'll use all the information and photos you’ve given to us to make sure we're able to do a standard install and decide the best logistics for the job.

Fitting the charger

We'll fit the charger on a brick or plaster wall, or other suitable place. We'll also fit an earthing unit (e.g. Garo or Matt:e brand) where needed.

Routing the cable

We'll route the cable through one drilled hole in a wall up to 20 inches thick, if needed. Up to 15 metres of High Tuff cable, run and clipped to the wall between your consumer unit and charger, up to 1.8m high.

Electrical connections

We'll connect the charger to the origin of the supply and install a Type A RCD in the consumer unit. We'll supply up to 3m of plastic conduit or trunking to conceal interior wiring.

Testing & demonstration

We'll do all necessary electrical testing and give you NICEIC certification, as well as showing you how the charger and app works.

Claiming charging grants

We'll check for any grants you may be eligible for.

Octopus will do it all

Your installation, step by step
  • Complete application

    Tell us which charger you need and we'll guide you through the application.

  • Remote survey

    To check you're able to get this charger.

  • Choose installation date

    We'll find a date that works for you, ideally before your car is delivered.

  • Installation day

    We'll fit your charger and talk you through how to use it.

  • Switch to an EV energy tariff

    EV-specific energy tariffs from Octopus will help you save even more money on charging.

What if I can't get a standard installation?

If installing your electric vehicle home charger is more complicated than our standard installation, it may cost extra to get you set up. Of course we'll give you a quote for any extra work before we go ahead.

Can I plug my electric car into a regular outlet?

Yes, you can. Would we recommend it? Not really. With such a low charge it can take you a long time to charge your electric vehicle.

Is a home EV charger worth it?

Yes! If you have off-street parking, getting a home EV charging point is worth it for two major reasons: you won't have to rely on finding public EV chargers and you can take advantage of low price tariffs during the night. And, with our salary sacrifice scheme for electric vehicles, you get the EV charger with standard installation included.

How much power does a home charger use?

It differs between chargers, but the EV chargers we offer are around 7kW. To compare, a typical electric furnace draws about 10-20kW and a water heater uses 3-4.5kW.

What will I need for a remote EV charger survey?

You’ll need to answer some questions about where you want the EV charger to be installed, and send us some photos so we can check your eligibility and decide how to get it sorted for you.
