EV CHARGE POINT INSTALLATION FOR PROPERTY DEVELOPERS
It’s estimated that in the next 5 years you’ll find more than 50 million electric vehicles on the road. It’s no wonder then, that a 2022 change in building regulations now requires all new-build homes and workplaces, supermarkets, and major renovations, to ensure EV charging points are installed. With this regulation already in effect, demand for EV charger installation at new property developments has seen a sharp increase. Factoring in your development’s EV charge point needs early on, can help to secure the best rates and avoid any delays in your build.
Aside from the regulatory requirements, installing EV chargers at your residential or commercial development offers a range of benefits. EV chargers increase ‘kerb appeal’ and help attract the new generation of eco-conscious buyers. They’re also a big plus for your environmental credentials, promoting the move to more sustainable travel and helping to decrease carbon emissions.

We had Josh come out to fit an Ohme charge pod. He was excellent; quick, efficient and friendly. He even swept the floor after himself and changed something that he noticed had been left in an unsafe condition by our electricians. So impressed, would highly recommend.
Great experience from enquiry to fitting. Trishan who we spoke to a number of times, was so good and helpful and his customer service skills were excellent. Our fitter Rob was knowledgeable and extremely able, the fitting took some time and he explained what he was doing at all times. Happy to have him in the house and would readily recommend him and the company. A great experience for us 👍🏻👍🏻
Very happy with the service from YuCharge. They honoured the £300 government grant unlike some other suppliers I talked to and they were better priced than all the others.
Would recommend to any small business in Hampshire.
