A few years ago electric vehicles and the home charging stations were immensely expensive and needed special hardwiring for home installations. But now with the modern electric vehicle charging stations installing a home EV charger at home is so easy peasy and offers faster charging time. These EV chargers are not only convenient but more efficient and affordable than they were in the past.
An EV battery can be charged by simply connecting the car to the charging point using a cable. Most of the EVs support a standard charge and a fast charge either through a single connector or through separate dedicated connectors. An affordable and relatively fast charging station can supply 3.6kW; there are also some that can supply up to 7.2kW. When planning on getting an EV charger installed, consult your EV charger installer as there are houses that may not be able to accept the 7.2kW solutions.
It has been observed that Ireland is particularly well suited for EV use:-
- Ireland being a small island, most journeys are within the electric car battery range.
- The climate is conducive for the car batteries to work efficiently
- Government supports the purchase of electric cars by facilitating tax breaks and grants.
