    Benefits

    It is an ideal way to add Solar PV to any property without altering it and at the same time provides a sheltered place with integrated charging point for electric vehicles. The solar panels can then provide electricity for the home and free fuel for the car!

    Who’s it for?

    Electric vehicle charging using renewable energy provides sustainable transport for the future. In addition to locating these carports at individual residential and business premises there is potential to establish a network of publicly available solar powered charging stations at retail car-parks, tourist attractions, council properties, and railway stations etc.

    What are the benefits of EVs?

    Electricity is one of a number of options which has great potential as an alternative to oil. It can be produced from sustainable sources, it can be readily supplied, and it produces no emissions from the exhaust pipe.

    This means EVs can offer significant environmental benefits when used as urban commuter transport. Here are some of the benefits of EVs when operating solely on battery power:

    • No exhaust emissions
    • A quiet driving experience
    • Easy to use infrastructure
    • Practical and easy to drive, Ideal in urban stop-start traffic

    When do I need to make a notification?
    Every time an installer or customer installs an electric vehicle charge point to an existing property, they must notify their DNO accordingly.

    Do all installations of EV charge points to existing properties require DNO intervention?
    No, installations where the Maximum Demand of the property including the new EV charge point load is less than the rating of the supply equipment must be notified to the DNO post-installation.
