The most important thing we need to know from you is the location of where you want your EV charger to be installed.

Depending on your fuse board, there are two options to install your EV charge point.

Option 1

Installing a separate small EV fuse board into your installation.

This will include the following:

  • 1 x ‘type A’ RCBO 
  • 1 x ‘surge protection device’ – This protects your charger and electric vehicle itself from possible surges in your electrical system
  • 1 x spare way from possible future installs

Option 2

If your consumer unit is relatively new, up to date, and spare ways it is possible to take the power from the unit.

It must have the following either existing or installed in the consumer unit:

  • 1 x ‘type A’ RCD or RCBO
  • 1 x ‘surge protection device’ (this unit takes up 2x spare ways)
  • At least 1 x spare way for the EV units fuse

Either Option 1 or Option 2 for EV Car Chargers will be installed using high-quality products and will be tested and signed off by OJF Electrical Ltd.

What If I Have A Looped Incoming Supply To My Property Or A 60 AMP Fuse?

EV Chargers we install have a ‘CT Monitoring’ device which is a clamp that sits around your incoming tails to your property’s consumer unit.

This monitors the amount of power being used in your house at any given time and can reduce the amount being used by your charger to stop overload on the property’s main fuse.
