EV Charging Point Installation East Sussex

As we look look to the future, there is one common factor that keeps popping up. That goal of reducing exhaust emissions and protecting the environment the best way we possibly can.

The introduction of electric cars has been a significant milestone for what car manufacturers need to work towards in the future. With more electric cars on our roads today than ever before we need to make sure there is enough charging bays available.

Here at CDS Electrical we install and maintain vehicle charging systems for commercial, domestic and educational premises across the South East. We supply and install car chargers to suit your requirements.

Benefits of Electric Vehicle Charging
Saving you money

Having an electric car is now highly recommended. Electric cars are much cheaper to run than there petrol and diesel counterparts. In the UK, the average price of electricity is about 14p per kWh (kilowatt hour) — meaning an entry-level Nissan Leaf’s 40kWh hour battery would cost about £5.60 to fully charge, and that’s good for 168 miles.

For comparison, the average price of petrol in the UK is about £1.20 per litre. Cover 168 miles in a petrol car averaging 50mpg, and you’ll pay about £18.36. It’s easy to see where the cost savings quickly come from.

We can install a car charging point at your home or workplace in East and West Sussex. There are some government grants that you can take advantage of.
