Electric Vehicle ( EV ) Charger Installation | Benfleet | Essex | SS7

Leigh Electrical Contractors was contacted by a customer in Benfleet that wanted to get a Tesla electric vehicle charger fitted as they already had both the charger and the car. They had been charging the car over night with a trickle charger that Tesla had supplied but had woken up to the smell of burning plastic as the plug had melted in the garage socket.

The socket was linked from the boiler supply and it looked like a DIY install as the cable used was 1.5mm instead of 2.5mm causing the socket to melt when the car was charging.

Leigh Electrical Contractors carried out a site survey and whilst they were there replaced the twin socket and wiring so that the socket could be used to trickle charge the car until the proper 7.5KW charger could be installed.

As the Tesla electric vehicle charger doesn’t have PEN disconnection built in so a separate Garo unit had to be installed for the charger which was fitted next to the fusebox.

The Tesla electric vehicle charger connects to properties Wi-Fi to share the chargers data with the customers app and to receive the latest features via over-the-air firmware. Charging at home allows you to take full advantage of low, overnight electricity prices to charge your electric vehicle.

Leigh Electrical Contractors are a local family run business and pride ourselves on our fast turn around on EV installations. The site survey was completed and the car charger was installed the following week.
