WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF HOME CHARGING?

A home charger is convenient as well as cost-effective. Charging can be done overnight using cheaper energy – and your vehicle will be ready to go when you wake up in the morning. Although your car comes with a standard home socket, we do recommend installing a home charger for regular use.

ADVICE

Your Lexus sales consultant will help you choose the best charger for your property and your charging needs.

When you order your charger, you’ll be asked to fill in a quick questionnaire about your home. Our partners at British Gas will then contact you to book a video call. This will be with an engineer who will check some technical details in your home, see whether any extra work is needed for the installation, and give you an indicative quote for installation.

INSTALLATION

British Gas will arrange an appointment for an engineer to visit your home and complete the installation. This will happen in plenty of time before your car arrives.

HELP WITH INSTALLATION COSTS

HELP WITH INSTALLATION COSTS

WHAT GOVERNMENT GRANTS ARE AVAILABLE FOR HOME CHARGING?

The government Office for Zero-Emission Vehicles (OZEV) grant contributes up to £350 towards the purchase and installation of your home charger. But there are certain criteria you must meet to qualify for the grant. For example:

- You have off-street parking
- Your property is within the UK
- Your vehicle is eligible for the grant
- You haven’t exceeded the limit of two Office for Zero-Emission Vehicles (OZEV)-funded charge points per household

See more information on the Office for Zero-Emission Vehicles (OZEV) grant

Our partners at British Gas will take care of all the Office for Zero-Emission Vehicles (OZEV) paperwork for you – completing the grant application at the same time as they order your home charger. If your application is successful, British Gas will automatically include it as a discount in the indicative price you are given for the home charger.

YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

    • How do I use a home charger?

      Centrica British Gas engineers will give you a full demonstration of how your charge point works, even if it has not been delivered yet.

    • What requirements do I need at my property for a home charger?

      If your home was built before 2008, you may need some additional works before a charger can be installed. Generally speaking, those who live in high-rise apartments who do not live on the ground floor tend not to be viable for a home charge point installation, as they do not own the wall the charger will be mounted on.

      To be eligible for the OLEV grant, homes are required to have designated, private off-street parking that is directly linked to the home. Charger installations that require running cables across thresholds or frequently used pathways would not be eligible for the grant owing to safety concerns and would not be installed by Centrica British Gas.

    • What does tethered and untethered mean?

      Tethered chargers come with a fixed cable in the charger that cannot be removed. Untethered chargers have a Type 1 or Type 2 socket which for direct use with your charging cable. With an untethered unit, you can unplug your charging cable from the charger when your charging session is finished.T

    • What grants are available for home charger installation?

      The Office for Low Emission Vehicles(OLEV) grant is a government grant for reducing the cost of installing an electric vehicle charger, provided under the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme.

      The Government will contribute up to £350 towards the purchase and installation of your electric car charger. But there are certain requirements you must meet in order to qualify for the grant – here is what you need to check:

      You have off-street parking.
      Your property is within the UK.
      Your vehicle is eligible for the grant.
      You have not already claimed the grant for your vehicle.
      You are not exceeding the limit of two OLEV funded charge points per household.
      You intend to keep your electric vehicle for at least 6 months.
      You will be the registered keeper, lessee, or nominated driver of the car.
      You have the homeowner or landlord’s permission to have the charger installed.

      The OLEV guidance states that the person applying for the grant must live at the property where the charger will be installed. As a result, landlords would only be able to apply for the OLEV grant for their own homes.

    • How long does it take to install a home charger?

      Once we have completed your Virtual Home Check, it usually takes 2-4 weeks for your charge point to be installed. Standard installations usually take 2 hours, but this can vary according to each home

    • What is a DNO and how could it affect my installation?

      A Distribution Network Operator (DNO) manages your electricity supply. They will need to check that your supply is adequate for the installation of a home charging unit. We will notify your DNO about the charger installation who then either provides approval or requests upgrade works at your property. The latter course of action is rare, but the approval process can delay installation by a few weeks depending on the DNO. The DNOs have 10 business days to respond to the application. If the DNO approves the application to install the charger, we will be in touch within 1 business day of us being notified to book in a charger installation date. Find out who your DNO is at this website: https://www.energynetworks.org/info/faqs/who-is-my-network-operator.html.

    • What happens if I move house?

      We would need access to your new house approximately 15 working days before you want the charger installation to allow us to perform a survey and get DNO approval. Additionally, you may not necessarily have the right to remove your charger, which is a fixture to the house, or take it with you in the event of a house sale. We recommend you seek your solicitor’s advice before considering removing a fixture such as an installed electrical product.
