Installing an electric charging point
In 2019, 3cea decided to install a 22kw charge point employees to reduce worries around range anxiety for longer journeys and to provide a convenient way to recharge the electric car whilst parked at the office during the day.
From a business point of view, having a charge point at the workplace will become increasingly important as a facility for employees and visitors. For businesses with an EV fleet or hotels that have decided to provide guests charging stations, it can be an essential operating factor.
Similar to the Electric Vehicle Home Charger Grant, the Government offers businesses, organisations, charities, and local authorities financial support to have charge points installed at their premises under the Better Energy Community Grant Scheme.
The table below highlights the estimated time to charge the e-Golf from empty to full. For rapid charging we show the time to charge from 20% – 80%, as charging tends to slow outside this range to protect the battery.
