What are they?
Charging an electric car is like charging a mobile phone – plug in overnight and top up during the day.
A home electric vehicle (EV) charger is a compact weatherproof unit that mounts to a wall with a connected charging cable or a socket for plugging in a portable charging cable.
These chargers benefit from faster charging speeds and built-in safety features.
Electric vehicles have benefits:
- Creating a cleaner environment
- Lower running costs
- Using renewable electricity tariffs
- Giving a better driving experience
- Government funding
- Free parking
- Reduce noise pollution
How it works?
Certain electricity tariffs offer much cheaper electricity at specific periods (usually late at night) and scheduling to charge your car, either via an app or the car itself, can save you money
A standard three pin plug with an electric vehicle supply equipment cable should only be used as a last resort.
Electric car charging points need to be professionally installed by qualified specialists. A certified provider will include installation costs in the price of the unit.
Raven Renewables are accredited installers of EV charging points.
We work with housing associations, local authorities, non-profit organisations, institutional investors, developers, contractors, private landlords and individual homeowners.

How to get an electric car charging point installed at home
The installation process involves wall mounting the charge point on an exterior wall or garage, near to where you park and connecting it safely to the mains electricity supply.
An installation should take around three hours and can be booked directly online, over the phone or through car dealerships.
Cost of installing a dedicated home charger
A fully installed home charging point costs from £800.
Under the EV ChargePoint grant, the government funds up to 75% of the cost of installing electric vehicle smart charge points at domestic properties.
Once installed, you only pay for the electricity you use to charge, which depends on the electricity tariff you have.
Service and maintenance
Raven Renewables is an end-to-end service. Except form design and installation, we are offering service and maintenance to ensure that the renewable energy installed is running properly and effectively with high standards.
