How do I know if I can get a home charge point?

Before an electric charging point can be installed at your home, you’ll need to have a home suitability survey carried out by the electric charging point provider. They assess the suitability of a charging point and confirm that you’re able to install one.  You may also need a suitable data network connection, which will be tested by an engineer. The suitability survey will identify if you need any remedial work like a new isolation switch, an earth plate or ground works, which can be arranged but the additional cost these works might incur, will not be subject to the funding available through the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS).
