A home charging point is cheaper in the long run

OLEV are offering a grant of up to £500 to aid with the cost of your charger, which can make a huge difference to the overall cost! Once the charger has been installed, it can cost as little as £3 for a full charge! This is much cheaper than other chargers, as you only have to pay your standard electricity tariff. You will no longer have to pay the extra fees just to charge in a supermarket or petrol station, where they charge you for the electricity and then some! Instead, you only have to pay for what you use.
