How do you install an electric car charger at home?
Once you’ve decided which charger is right for you and whether you’re eligible for an OZEV grant, it’s time to pick an installer.
To install Indra Smart PRO chargers, we partner with Plug Me In, who can install across the whole country.
Our installers will start by visiting you to check over the details. This survey means they can do the essential electrical safety checks before they set a date to fit your charger.
Sometimes you might need to upgrade your distribution board or other electrical components first, but your installer will explain the details.
They’ll also agree where to install the charger with you. They need to follow electric car charger installation guidelines and the latest regulations, as well as checking where your nearest power supply is and making sure you can park off the street.
Then on your installation day, they’ll fit your charging station and make sure the charging cable is in a safe place. It normally takes about three hours, but it’s a good idea to be available for the whole day just in case.
Before they leave, they’ll register the charger, set up your details and carry out various tests to make sure things are working properly. Then they should show you how to use the charger and how to install the app, as well as help you download the app onto your phone, tablet or computer. As it’s a smart charger, you can check it and control it with the app whenever you’re online.
