EV Extras offer a fixed price installation only service for EV Chargers.
You will need to determine the level of service you require for your home for the two standards shown below
1- EV EXTRAS STANDARD INSTALLATION applicable where your property's electrical wiring system has all the requirements to just add the EV charger.
2- EV EXTRAS CONSUMER PLUS INSTALLATION applicable where your property's electrical wiring system does not have all the requirements to add the EV charger. Including the installation of a new small compartment (mini consumer unit) adjacent to your existing electrical fuse board.
In order to determine which service you require, please inspect your electric consumer unit/fuse board to determine whether it has capacity to take the EV Charger without modification (two free slots - we will explain this later). The electric consumer is usually found in one of the following locations within the home: understairs area, garage, utility room or kitchen.
This unit will look similar to those shown below:
Once you have located your electric consumer unit/ fuse board, check whether the it has any spares slots as illustrated below
Four spare/free slots free, 2 on the right, 2 on the left
Three spare slots free on the above- You just need two free slots
If your consumer unit/fuse board has two spare slots as shown above you only require the EV EXTRAS STANDARD INSTALLATION.
If you electric consumer unit/fuse board does not have two free slots then you require the EV EXTRAS STANDARD CONSUMER PLUS INSTALLATION.
An example of a electric consumer unit where no spare slots exists is shown below:
No Spare Ways - STANDARD CONSUMER PLUS INSTALLATION REQUIRED
One Spare Way STANDARD CONSUMER PLUS INSTALLATION REQUIRED
If you are in any doubt please feel free to email photographs of your electric consumer unit to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be pleased to take a look and advise.
