Within the next 20 years almost every property in the UK shall have an electric vehicle charger, and diesel/petrol vehicles shall seem like an almost distant archaic memory. The government has introduced many agendas in their fight against climate change including the stopping of manufacturing diesel and petrol vehicles by 2030, and even sooner than that as of September 2022 all new builds are required to have an EV chargers fitted.
Because of this, Falcon Innovations have insured we are experts on electric vehicle charger installs before the industry becomes too overwhelmed, and to ensure we can help answer all your questions.
We are also approved installers for many Electric Vehicle chargers, meaning we can provide better discounts to our customers.

As of 2030 all diesel and petrol vehicles in the UK shall stop being manufactured, meaning the alternative shall be electric vehicles. Because of this it is worth considering having an electric vehicle charger fitted as soon as possible to take advantage of the current government grant before it disappears.
As of 2030 all diesel and petrol vehicles in the UK shall stop being manufactured, meaning the alternative shall be electric vehicles. This industry shall be set to expand more rapidly than any other industry in electrical history over the next 10 years, which shall underwhelm the already shortage of skilled electricians to install them.
Because of this we recommend that you have you charger fitted before this rush, even if you don’t have an electric vehicle just yet. the average wait time to have an electric vehicle charger installed at the moment seems to be 4-6 weeks due to material and electrician availability, and we estimate that within 5 years this wait time could go to 4-6 months unless more electricians are trained within the already overwhelmed industry.
It is also worth considering that the government will currently provide a grant up-to £350 for the cost of your charger if you qualify, this used to be £500 before the current rush began on electric vehicle charger installs, so it is likely this grant shall disappear over the next couple of years.
Average cost of electric vehicle chargers installs vary massively depending on the type of charger you would like, the location of your charger, and the brand you would like. The average mid-range charger costs about £650 for the unit alone, plus other material costs of about £100-£400 on average, and an average labour install of £200-£600 depending on the cable run to the unit, bringing the average total to about £950-£1650.
An electric vehicle install involves the install of an independent power cable to the unit location going back to the fuse board/consumer unit. This cable can be ran in a number of ways but is often ran externally in black SWA cable for ease of install, as the alternative is often chasing the walls inside the property. You may also need either a separate fuse board being installed for the charger, or if easier a consumer unit upgrade. In some cases, you may need the electricity board to upgrade your meter tails and cut out fuse so there is enough power for the charger.
