The cost of running an electric vehicle is largely dependent on the electric vehicle itself, as well as how you charge it and how many miles it’s driven each day. However, based on a number of academic studies as well as manufacturer claims, you can expect running costs to sit at between 3 – 6 pence per mile. Compare this to the running costs for petrol, which average at about 15.8 ppm, and diesel, which sits at 13.4 ppm and it’s not hard to see why so many people are turning to electric vehicles.
Public EV charge points are increasing by the day and can often be found in the carparks of supermarkets, restaurants and other public parking areas. There are also a number of apps which can be downloaded with up-to-date charging locations. A popular app is Zap Map, which has thousands of listed EV charge points.
The time it takes to charge your electric vehicle greatly depends on the vehicle you have, the charger being used and how low your battery is to begin with. On top of this, there are also slow chargers available as well as rapid chargers. With this in mind, charging your electric vehicle could take as little as 30 minutes or as long as 10 hours.
Many domestic homes only have access to slow chargers. Although 10 hours can seem a very long time, many cars offer over 200 miles at full charge. This means you can plug your vehicle in, go to bed and by the next morning it will be ready to go. It is also unlikely most people will completely drain a battery every day.
The cost of installing your EV charger, as well as charging your electric vehicle, will greatly depend on the vehicle you own and the charger you’d like to install. That’s why the team at Care Projects always carry out a visit to your property to identify the best location for the charger and routing of the cables. We also assess the condition and suitability of your existing electrical system. Following this visit, a member of our team will identify the best charging point for your property and provide you with a detailed and honest quote.

If you’d like to install a home EV charger, a YouTube tutorial won’t cut it! Installing an EV charger safely requires expert knowledge of both your home’s electrical system as well as the charger itself. Without this expertise, your installation process could go horribly wrong and compromise the safety and performance of your charger.

The charging type you require will be determined by the electric vehicle you purchase. Type 1 and Type 2 are the most commonly used connections between the charger and the vehicle for charging at home.
Type 1 connectors have a 5-pin plug and are only capable of handling single-phase power. Type 2 is rapidly becoming the most popular charging connection, which can handle both single and three-phase power through a 7-pin plug.

If possible, you should always avoid charging your electric vehicle with an extension lead. Although it is technically possible, charging your electric vehicle direct from an electrical socket in your home will take longer to complete a full charge. You also run the risk of causing an electrical fire.
In contrast, an EV charging point is installed using a dedicated circuit and is engineered to operate over sustained usage which lowers the chances of fire.
At Care Projects, we only fit products that comply with the latest safety standards and regulations. For more information about our EV charging point installation services, get in touch with our team.
The lifespan of your electric car will depend on the model you choose as well as what age it is. Most electric vehicles have a lifespan of 100,000 to 200,000 miles and will come with an extended warranty and guarantee.
Only a few years ago, electric vehicles were not considered by many to be very viable. This was as a result of the cost of the vehicles themselves as well as the distance in which they could travel – or lack thereof. Fortunately, over the past couple of years, the technology within the EV sector has advanced in leaps and bounds. Today, Electric vehicles are a much more viable option for people wanting to save on running costs and minimise their carbon footprint.
As electric vehicles, also known as EVs, become more prevalent on our roads, the infrastructure for keeping them topped up with energy needs to roll out simultaneously. If you already own an electric vehicle or are thinking of purchasing one, then you’ll also need to consider installing a charger on your property. Doing so will mean your vehicle is always ready to go as well as minimises the need to charge up when you and your family are out and about.
With the government announcing a ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel vehicles from 2030, more and more people are turning to electric vehicles. At Care Projects, our team are experienced in installing a variety of different car chargers in private homes, tenanted properties and centralised workplaces.
Care Projects is also accredited by the Office of Zero Emissions Vehicles (OLEV). This means we are fully qualified to help you and/or your business secure the right government grant for your charging unit installation.
As the name suggests, an electric car is a vehicle that is powered either fully or partially by electricity. At Care Projects, our team install a diverse range of EV chargers for every kind of EV.
One of the most commonly asked questions we get here at Care Projects is whether or not an electric car is more sustainable than a vehicle with a traditional combustion engine. Although this depends on the type of EV you have, electric vehicles are generally considered better for the planet than petrol and diesel-powered cars.
There are three primary types of electric cars:
Petrol-powered vehicles emit an average of two tonnes of CO2 each year. As an electric car utilises electricity, it emits no greenhouse gas emissions, making them more environmentally sustainable than vehicles with traditional combustion engines. On average, one person upgrading their petrol-powered vehicle to an electric car can prevent 1.5 million grams of excess CO2 in a single year – this is the equivalent of four return flights between Barcelona and London.
In simple terms, the more electric cars on the road, the lower the number of excess carbon emissions from petrol and diesel-powered vehicles – and if you’re charging your vehicle from a renewable power source, such as solar or wind energy, you can also reduce your carbon footprint even further. As a result, the biggest benefit of upgrading your traditional vehicle to a modern electric car is heightened environmental sustainability as well as improved air quality in our cities and towns.
As major cities across the UK implement low-emission zones, it’s never been a better time to make the switch.
At Care Projects, we offer a range of home charging solutions. From simple installation to more complex projects, our team is dedicated to finding the very best solution for you and your property.
We conduct an in-depth site assessment before every installation to ensure the highest degree of safety can be achieved.
