Live in a flat or apartment or rental property in the UK?
Home owners living in flats or apartments, and tenants living in rental properties in the UK may be eligible for the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) grant of up to £350 towards the cost of buying and installing a home charger.
Key eligibility criteria:
You have bought or are leasing an electric vehicle.
Off street parking is available at your property.
Your landlord has given consent if you are a tenant.
It's the first time the grant is being claimed for your electric vehicle.
You don't have more than two OZEV funded chargers installed on your property.
Installing your bp pulse home charger takes just 4-6 hours. Our technician will carry out some checks, run you through the documents, and confirm the best location for your unit. Then, you’re good to go. To find out more about installation, go here.
Compared with a standard 3-pin plug-in-charger, a smart charger can charge your EV around 8x faster. It will give you more control around your charging and lifestyle. Charging your EV at home is convenient and more cost-effective than public charging networks.
It depends on the electrical output to the vehicle which can vary. In general most vehicles will take around 8 hours to charge from empty to full from a 7kW pulse home charger, and 4 to 6 hours on a 22kW. Note: Your home will require a 3-phase electricity supply to be able to support a 22kW version of bp pulse home smart.
Connecting your home Wi-Fi to your charger allows you to use its smart functionality. You will still be able to charge your electric car without a Wi-Fi connection but its smart features will be unavailable. Your charger will simply charge your vehicle in auto charging mode.
This is one of the features that makes pulse home smart when it‘s connected to your Wi-Fi. You can define up to fifty timeslots using our web portal.
Simply plug in your electric car and you can start or stop the session at the touch of a button - and schedule the best times, like overnight when electricity tariffs may be more efficient.
The bp pulse home app is the partner to our home chargers. That means you’ll only have access to all of the app’s features once you’ve placed an order for one. Once you’re registered as a customer, you’ll have access to all elements within the app.
If you’re already a bp pulse home charger customer, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes, you will need internet connectivity to enable your unit to receive regular functionality updates.
bp pulse home charger smart is designed to receive upgrades which you can download as and when new smart or security features are available. This means your unit will always be able to stay up to date, so you won’t need to replace it to have the latest functionality.
These include downloadable features to meet the requirements of the Smart Charge Points Regulations (please see above FAQ for more information on these regulations).
The Electric Vehicles (Smart Charge Points) Regulations 2021 (for their full title), are new regulations that have been introduced by the Government to help better manage the national electricity grid as more and more vehicles move to electric.
You can find the full details of these on the Government’s website.
