Electric Vehicle Charging

Let Norfolk Renewable Installations Ltd design and install your electric vehicle charging point

Electric Vehicles

They are a smart way to reduce carbon emissions in transportation because they produce less pollution than petrol driven vehicles. By 2040, the UK wants to be emission-free, and electric cars are helping them get there. So having an electric vehicle charging point at home is the perfect solution.

In essence, an engine which uses a fuel cell are electric vehicles, and this technology is currently recognised as a major advancement. The electromotive force generated by the electric motor is used to propel an electric vehicle. Thanks to a battery or other gadgets, the motor gets the necessary energy. They often need to be charged at an EV charging station every day or occasionally when travelling long distances.

An electric vehicle runs silently and without producing any noise or gas. Because of this, it lessens the environmental footprint of transportation.

What are the types of electric vehicle?


Electric vehicles which receive power from an external power station, for example, a tram.


A directly generated electric vehicle, for example, a solar car.


An EV with a battery to store electricity from an external source, for example, an electric van.

The most common kind of EV is the third type, using batteries to keep the power from another source in storage. The controller that supplies electricity to the electric motor modifies it based on the driver’s pressure on the accelerator pedal. The energy from the batteries, which are recharged using domestic electricity, is used by the electric car.

The battery capacity is from 15 to 200kWh. With this range, the electric car could work between 100km to 300km. This number depends on the driving type (use of lights, heat, big accelerations, etc).

To charge the EV batteries you need an external source of electricity. For that, you can use an electric vehicle charging point which we can install for you.

For your reassurance, Norfolk Renewable Installations are accredited members of HEISNAPIT and MCS.

As a company specialising in EV chargers, we highly recommend a charger that is completely future proofed. Being solar compatible gives the users a huge advantage when it comes to using daylight to charge their electric vehicle for free! We have installed many chargers for home and business owners but two that stand out from the crowd that we highly recommend are ‘Project EV’ and ‘Zappi’ by MyEnergi. Both solar compatible, integrated PEN fault detection (so no need for that annoying earth spike) and integrated load balancing technology preventing your main fuse from blowing if other appliances are being used at the same time as your vehicle is charging!

The four modes to charge your electric car


You have the option of using either single-phase or three-phase A.C. to supply power in this charging mode. In this one, a straightforward charging wire is used instead of a control box. This cable uses a typical household outlet socket; therefore, this mode is compatible with both charging devices and domestic outlets.


This mode is identical to the first one but utilises a separate charging cable and an RCD-equipped in-cable control box.


Either a single-phase or three-phase AC can provide the energy. This mode differs from others since it requires a tethered charging connection or a specialised socket outlet. You obviously cannot utilise a household outlet for this type of installation. It only functions with a unique charging station. To communicate between the charger and the vehicle, extra conductors are built into the charging wire. With this, the protective conductor’s verification helps to make a smart choice of power available when charging first begins.


The charging point directly converts AC electricity to DC in this mode (in the others, the AC current is converted by the EV). It makes use of a specific car intake and vehicle connector as well as a tethered charging wire. The battery directly accepts this current because the current being provided to the car is DC. Chargers often offer a charging time of twenty minutes or less, thus this is really quick.
