Vehicle Charging Points

Vehicle Charging Points

Electric Vehicles (EV) are becoming more mainstream and Secure Systems can deliver a complete vehicle charging solution.

Whether part of a new development or installation onto an existing site, Secure Systems will be responsible for everything associated with the installation of the charger, from initial design through to installation and electrical connection.

More EV Drivers Are Expecting to Charge at Work.

Improve productivity: Save your employees worry and time by providing them the convenience of charging while they work.

Increase employee loyalty: Keep your employees engaged by providing them with a benefit they highly value.

Enhance your brand image: Show your customers and employees you’re a modern workspace by providing innovative charging solutions at your offices.

Achieve your sustainability goals: Reduce greenhouse gas emissions from employee commutes by thousands of metric tons.

Even though EV adoption is in the early stages, it is growing quickly and demand for charging at your organisation is likely to increase.

The recent reduction of Benefit-in-Kind tax for zero emissions company cars is likely to drive up demand for Workplace EV charging.

With Array Charging (load balancing) and Passive Wiring, it’s quick and easy to install additional charging points.

Our installation team can lay the foundation for future expansion of EV charging.

This helps future proof your installation so EV charging can be scaled easily as more of your colleagues start driving electric.

Charging an Electric Car at Home

You can charge an electric car at home using a dedicated home charging point (a standard 3 pin plug with an EVSE cable should only be used as a last resort).

Electric car drivers choose a home charging point to benefit from faster charging speeds and built-in safety features.

Charging an electric car is like charging a mobile phone – plug in overnight and top up during the day.

It’s useful to have a 3pin charging cable as a backup charging option, but they are not designed to withstand these loads and should not be used long term.

How to charge an electric car at home

To charge an electric car at home, you will need a home charging point installed where you park your electric car, or an EVSE supply cable for a 3-pin plug socket as an occasional back up.

Drivers usually choose a dedicated home charging point because it’s faster and has built-in safety features.

A home charging point is a compact weatherproof unit that mounts to a wall with a connected charging cable or a socket for plugging in a portable charging cable.

Dedicated home charging points are installed by qualified specialist installers like Pod Point.

Tip: An electric car will have either a Type 1 or a Type 2 connector and you’ll need to choose a home charger that’s compatible with it. To make it easy, we automatically make sure you get the right chargepoint for your vehicle when you order.

“Secure Systems have continuously proved they can work efficiently, even with difficult time constraints, on all the sites they look after for us. I am particularly impressed with the flexibility of all their staff. I would have no hesitation in recommending them for any power, data, access control or CCTV requirements.”
