Throughout London more and more drivers are switching to electric cars, from vehicles that have traditional internal combustion engines. This is due to numerous factors such as the environmental benefits and large automotive companies phasing out production of diesel engines. However, the primary reason drivers in London are switching to electric cars is because they are exempt from the London congestion charge. The rise of electric cars in London has led to an increase in demand for electric vehicle EV chargers.
Here at Applegarth Engineering we specialise in the installation and maintenance of domestic and commercial EV chargers, in London. We are proud to be an approved supplier and installer of EV chargers from several of the UK’s leading EV charge point manufacturers, including Rolec, Zappi and EO. We can provide an EV charge point design and installation service, including ground work and electrical installation, to suit any application or location. All of our EV charger installers are highly experienced and carry out installations in line with the IET code of practice of EV charging.
