EV Home Charger for Domestic Use
EV home charger installation is a rapidly growing area of work for electricians, with more electric vehicle owners seeing the benefits of having a charger at their home. Of course, choosing the best home charger for EV is an increasingly difficult task due to the range of options on the market.
In terms of functionality, you can have EV chargers that change their behaviour based on your electrical usage at home—particularly useful for homes running on solar power—chargers that present you with a wealth of data about your charging usage including how much it costs you to charge your vehicle, and much more.
Commercial EV Chargers Ireland
EV car charger installation in commercial settings is becoming increasingly popular for a host of reasons, not least of which is the desire of companies to do their bit to foster a society of clean energy. After all, we are all in the same boat when it comes to the environment. It can also serve as a cost-effective perk for employees and an incentive for head-hunted talent.
Commercial EV car chargers can be installed as part of a broader package that includes servicing and ongoing support. Individual chargers are varied enough—and EV charging packages are versatile enough—to suit your business, whatever that business may be.

SEAI EV Charger Grant for Home Installation
For EV car chargers, Ireland has incentives in place designed to encourage you to move towards more sustainable methods of living. The Sustainable Energy Authority Ireland (SEAI) has a scheme in place to help those moving to EV. For eligible homeowners, you may be entitled to as much as €600 towards the purchase and installation of your charger.
There are several criteria involved, such as being a private owner of an electric vehicle bought from 2018 onward, but we will be happy to talk you through the process so that you get any money you are entitled to through the SEAI scheme.
ACA EV Charger Installation Ireland Grant for Businesses
There are incentives in place for businesses to move towards electric vehicles—or encourage their employers to do so by having charging points at work—through Accelerated Capital Allowance (ACA) tax incentives.
This scheme is intended to encourage investment in electric vehicle and hybrid-electric vehicle products and is available to most entities that pay corporate tax in Ireland. There are more criteria to meet, of course, but we are always happy to talk our clients through schemes like this, ensuring they get the best possible value from their EV charger installations. If you are unsure if your business would qualify, give us a call.
Tips on Choosing the Best EV Car Charger
Whether you’re looking for the best EV home charger Ireland has to offer, a practical solution for multiple commercial charging points, or anything in between, the trick to choosing the best charger is factoring in your circumstances and not allowing things like brand names to dictate your choice.
While there are obvious quality issues you will want to consider, most chargers are built to a very high standard and things like the included features, cost, and associated packages will be more important. Talk to the electrical experts before you make your purchase.
A Brief Guide to EV Charging Cables
Many chargers are untethered, and there are advantages to going untethered at home also. Of course, the downside to that situation is that you will have to carry a charging cable with you. There are two types of cables, and they are incompatible with each other. Type 1 cables are used in the US and Asian countries, whereas Type 2 cables are the standard in Europe. So be careful ordering anything online.
The next thing to consider is the rating. You will need a cable that has a rating equal to or higher than your vehicle. If you go higher, it will cost more, but you will be able to use that cable on higher-rated vehicles as well.
