What is a non-standard installation?

It’s a home chargepoint installation where more work is needed.

You’ll have to pay extra if you need one of these.

You might need a non-standard installation if:
  • Your parking space is not directly next to your home
  • Your charging unit needs to be mounted on something other than your home, like a post. Your home chargepoint can only be installed on a permanent structure
  • The cable route from your meter or unit is longer than 15 metres
  • The chargepoint provider needs to drill through more than one wall for the cable route
  • Your electrical equipment needs to be upgraded
