The Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EHVS) is an EV home charger grant from the UK government providing funds for the cost of fitting a wallbox at home. It covers 75% of the cost, up to £350.
Government grants towards electric car charging installation cost changed in April 2022. Meaning that homeowners in bungalows and detached, semi-detached and terraced properties can no longer claim this funding. However, you can apply if you live in a flat or rented accommodation.


At Carter Electrical we are an Office for Zero Emission Vehicles-approved installer, which means we can install any wall charging units for our customers.

Contact us to get your electric vehicle wall charging unit installed.


Electrical Installation Condition Report

 This is a test of the fixed wiring in a property (i.e. anything that can’t be unplugged). If all is acceptable and safe, a certificate can be issued. If not, a report is issued, which lists any faults found. If wished, we can provide a quote for any remedial work required to meet certification.

Solar PV

 Solar Photovoltaic

These are the most common types of solar panels and convert light to electricity (not to be confused with solar thermal panels, which heat water but do not produce electricity – we’re sorry but we can’t help with these).


Feed in Tariff

The Feed in Tariff was set up to promote the uptake of renewable technologies. Unfortunately, it was scrapped at the end of March 2019. The new scheme (Smart Export Guarantee – SEG) was announced in January 2019 and started in January 2020. Rates can vary from provider to provider so you should shop around to find the best deal for you. The technology will still need to be installed by a registered installer in order to qualify.

One of the organisations which regulate the training and work of electrical business in the UK.

Part P

Part P

An electrical safety law, often referred to as Part P of the Building Regulations, implemented to enhance the protection of homeowners and reduce the risk of electric shock when using electricity. The law, which applies to England and Wales, aims to improve electrical safety in the home and prevent the number of accidents which are caused by faulty electrical work. The law requires an electrician registered with a government-approved scheme, such as NICEIC, to carry out most electrical work in the home. After completion of any work your NICEIC registered electrician will issue you with a Building Regulations Compliance Certificate to prove it meets the required standards of Part P. You can only carry out electrical work yourself if you can inspect and test that it is safe for use. To comply with the law, you must notify your local building control office before you begin any work and pay the appropriate fee for them to inspect the work.
