Two Charge Points at Home

1794 Views 12 Replies 11 Participants Last post by  richtrash
I currently have a socketed chargemaster point at home for my Zoe but i'm eligible for another Podpoint installation with my Leaf under OLEV to the same specification, is it worth having this? Apart from the benefit of charging two vehicles at once, which would be infrequent, is there any other advantage in having two?

Any advice appreciated!

I think the installer has to get permission from the electricity supply DNO before a second charging point can be installed – to ensure that the local distribution can support the maximum current draw.

We looked into having a second charge point when I changed LEAFs but it still cost a few hundred quid on top of the grant and we decided it that it wasn't worth the expense because we can always organise our charging to ensure that both cars have the range we need. If we screw up we have the option of using the 13A granny chargers or using an EH rapid which is about 7 miles away.
