Get a chargepoint at home

Having a chargepoint at home is the most convenient and cost-effective way of charging your electric car. If you’re leasing your first fully electric car on the Motability Scheme, we’ll arrange and cover the standard cost of a home chargepoint and its installation.

We’ll arrange your installation

You’ll need to have off-road parking next to your home, like a driveway or garage.

After we’ve approved your application, we’ll allocate you to Ohme or Easee. They’ll contact you first, then arrange to send someone out to you to install a 7kW chargepoint.

We can only arrange a chargepoint installation for your first fully electric car.

Check you have permission first

If you do not own your property or if it's a flat or leasehold you'll need to ask for permission to have a home chargepoint installed.

Think about whether you're likely to move to a new house during your lease too.

We’ll only pay for your first chargepoint to be installed, for your first fully electric car. So if you move home and you need a new chargepoint, you’ll need to pay for this and it could cost you from £750.

Send photos and information to check your chargepoint can be installed

Ohme or Easee will contact you within three working days of us approving your application.

They’ll ask you to send some information and take some photos of where you want the charger fitted and of where your fuse box is located.

Contact your energy provider

Some people need to have their electricity supply de-looped – this means separating your supply from your neighbours' supply, if you share a single electricity supply circuit. The cost of this is not included in your package and you'll need to organise this with your energy provider.

If any work is needed to gain access to your electricity supply or we have to run cables a long way from your main fuse box, you’ll need to pay for these costs.

We recommend you have the chargepoint fitted before your new car is due to be delivered, so your installer can solve any complications.

On the installation day

Ohme or Easee will arrange an installation date with you.

You might need to download some apps – try to download these before they arrive. Make sure you clear any items that might be in the way of the fuse box or meter.

 

What happens on the day?

Ohme or Easee will contact you to give you a rough arrival window, so you can make sure you're home.

Both Ohme and Easee installers will be able to identify themselves, so you know it’s them.

 

How long does it take?

It’s tricky to say how long it might take, as each installation can be different.

Generally, they’ll fit the charger not too far from your main fuse box, which can take up to two hours.

If it’s more complicated, like completing groundworks or updating the electrics in your home, this could take up to five hours.

 

You’ll have a demonstration

Your installer will make sure you're comfortable with how your chargepoint works and how to use it. We’ll tell you how to get support after your installation too, if you need it.

If you have any questions or issues with your home chargepoint, please speak to your chargepoint installer directly.
