The arrival of long range, fully electric, vehicles on the market means that range anxiety can become a thing of the past  

Charging at Home
Charging at Home
There are a few options, starting with simply plugging your car into a standard socket and your EV comes with a cable that plugs directly into a standard three pin socket. This means getting started on charging your car at home is as simple as charging any other battery-operated device. Charging this way is however the slowest charging method available and relies on you having outdoor access to the standard socket.
Dedicated charging point
Dedicated charging point
The recommended option will be installing a dedicated home charging point. These will be up to 8 times faster than a standard socket and can be installed right in your driveway for easy charging. This option has controls to prevent electrical overload and will adjust power accordingly. Various cost savings on this option, from off-peak hours charging to save on energy bills and a grant of up to €600 towards the installation available from the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland.
