Useful information on Electric Vehicle charge points

RECC’s guidance below sets out the main features of Electric Vehicle charge points and the issues you will need to take into account when deciding whether to install a charge point at home. It also explains how you can link a charge point to your solar PV and battery storage system, and even export electricity back to your home or to the grid. Finally, it lists the questions you should ask your installer before deciding to go ahead.

You might also find RECC’s guidance on Demand Side Response offers useful.

Citizens Advice has recently looked at all electricity tariffs available to consumers with EV charge points at home. You can find the report, called Take Charge, here:
