PROJECT: Supply and Installation of a Domestic Electric Vehicle Charge Point

SCOPE OF WORK:

Survey the domestic property to check electrical compliance. A Retroflo engineer undertook the installation of the Rolec wall-mounted charge point. The 16A 3.6Kw Mode 3 model is one of the most economical charging stations on the market and includes a J1772 (type 1) tethered lead connection gun, holster, pin lock and status LED. Once the engineer was happy that the unit was fully operational, he then undertook handover, instructing the client on using the unit and getting the most from low tariff electricity periods.
