Our EV Home Charger Installation Process
Before your EV home charger installation:
- A member of the Jolt team will call to discuss your electric car charger installation needs and understand your specific requirements (don’t worry we’re here to help you, not grill you!).
- We will ask a few questions to help you get the most out of your EV charger installation, understanding your eligibility for an OZEV grant, a government grant scheme worth up to £350 to help with the cost of your electric car charger installation (previously known as OLEV).
- We will book a pre-installation site survey at your convenience, assessing your charging requirements via virtual assessment. We can also offer in-person surveys where remote surveys are not possible.
Home visit and EV charging survey
- A Jolt engineer will survey your home and conduct a full review of the installation site, assessing Wi-Fi coverage and electricity supply. Our car charger installers also assess your electric car battery capacity and make sure you have the best possible parking spot.
- Based on this, they will work with you to agree on the best location for your EV charge point installation
- Our engineer will then discuss your vehicle and charging requirements and talk through the best potential electric vehicle chargers that would work for you, their installation prices, and their capabilities.

Car Charger Installation FAQs
Why install a home charger?
You bought an electric vehicle so you could drive it, not so it could sit on your drive!
Using a normal 3 pin socket only offers a very slow charge rate, sometimes taking up to 24 hours for a full charge. This means longer charging times, running out of juice, or having to plan your route around available and working public charging stations, hardly convenient.
An EV home charger, on the other hand, offers full control. Charge your car whenever you want, for as long as you want. You even have control over the price – set budgets, see how much it costs to charge your EV in real-time and ensure you are always getting the cheapest charging price by using an agile energy tariff.
Best of all you can do it all from the comfort of your own home. You wouldn’t go somewhere else or wait 24 hours to charge your phone, so why should you for your car or motorbike?
A home charger really will put you in charge!
What's included in home installation?
We install your home charger in the most convenient place for you. This is usually on the side of your home. We ensure that your charge point is fitted where it gets strong wifi coverage to help you get the best of any smart charge features.

Can I get money off my EV charger installation?
You may be entitled for up to £350 of funding towards your EV home charger installation.
