You'll need the following for your application
Details of your vehicle
To get started you'll need to know the make, model, registration, estimated delivery and have proof of ownership
Your phone for photos
You will need to take pictures of the location where you'd like the charger to be installed and your fuse board and associated area
An energy bill
Finally, you'll need a copy of your energy bill to grab your MPAN number from
You may need an isolator switch before the chargepoint can be installed. If we are your energy supplier, we can do this for you. If we are not, you will need to ask your supplier to install one.
This switch allows our engineer to isolate the supply to the house in order to safely install the charger. Once the charger has been installed, it can be isolated for house supply.
You may also not have sufficient power supply at your home. If that is the case you will need to request a power supply upgrade from your local District Network Operator, you can find yours here.
Your installation journey
Not sure what to expect on your charging journey - check out our step-by-step guide below:
Complete your online application and submit it to the team. Our sister company Octopus Energy Services will take you through your install journey and arrange the install. They will get in touch within a few working days to progress it.
Our engineers will use all the information and photos you’ve provided to do a remote site survey to ensure it is a standard install and decide the best logistics for the job (essentially where to lay the cabling and identify whether any electrical work needs doing in advance!).
We will then confirm a final price to you, including any additional costs if it’s not standard, and/or any works are required before we can undertake the install*.
Leads time for installing your charger are estimated at around 6-8 weeks from point of order. We will do our best to make sure we find a suitable date if you need it sooner.
On the day, you will receive a message to let you know that we are on the way. The install of the charger takes up to 4 hours.
We will need to turn the power off in your home for a short period - don't worry, this will be explained and arranged by your engineer on the day.
Once we’ve completed the install, our engineer will guide you through how to use the charger and download any associated Apps to help provide you with the best charging experience.
