Commercial EV Charging in Hove

The end of an ev charger cable

The ban on new petrol and diesel cars is creeping ever so closer. By 2035, the government wants every single new car or van to have zero emissions at the tailpipe. If you’re thinking now is the time to ensure your property or business has the right infrastructure to keep up with the demand, J Kirby Electrical in Hove can help.

No matter what your business is or what property you own, if people are driving there, they will expect your facility to have EV car chargers. It also means you’re doing your bit as a commercial property owner to save the planet.

It might be an investment that you think is a little unnecessary right now, but it’s predicted by the end of 2022, electric cars will outsell diesel and mild hybrid diesel. Already this year 137,498 new electric vehicles have been sold in the UK; this makes up 14% of the UK’s new car industry. The car manufacturers have caught onto the trend too, with more than 40% of new models now available as plug ins.

There are many different types of EV chargers available, J Kirby Electrical can help you choose the best one to suit your property.

Standard EV charging points

Standard charging points are a great option if you have people parked at your property for a full day. At 3 KW, on average will charge a car fully in around 8-14 hours. These slightly slower chargers don’t put too much added pressure on your electricity bills and require very little electrical maintenance once installed. These chargers are also slightly less expensive while still being a great option for somewhere like an office car park where the employees are leaving their cars for at least 8 hours.

Speedy EV charging points

What’s seen as the slightly faster charger is one rated anywhere from 7-22 KW. This could charge your electric vehicle in as little as 4-6 hours on average.These chargers would be a great option for a shopping centre or even a designated electric vehicle charging point.

Rapid & Ultra Rapid EV charging points

If you think your property needs something even quicker, you should consider either the rapid or ultra-rapid chargers. Rapid chargers are rated at 50 KW, which could take as little as 30-60 minutes to fully charge an electric vehicle and Ultra Rapid being even faster! This would suit a business or property where people are only stopping for a quick break or something to eat.

These types of chargers would add a lot of pressure on your electricity bills so you would need to consider this beforehand. J Kirby Electrical in Hove will always offer advice if requested so you can relax knowing you will be making the right decision for you and your property or business.
