At APG, we have recently expanded our services to include the installation and setup of electric car charging points. We are huge believers that travel shouldn’t damage the Earth. Because of this, we are now offering EV charging points to our customers across Lancashire in the hopes that we can do everything we can to support the use of electric vehicles.
Whether you need home charging, commercial charging or workplace charging, we are certain that we can offer you the best installation services across Lancashire whilst also helping you save money by making use of the excellent government OLEV grant.
All of our smart chargers have been accredited by the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) which means that they qualify for the Home Charge government grant and the workplace Charging grant. If eligible, you can reduce the cost of your home charger by £500 and workplace chargers by up to £10,000.
Our team at APG also know that electric vehicles can sometimes be a bit daunting or confusing and so, we have also answered some of our most frequently asked questions below to help anyone who would like to know more about switching to an electric vehicle.
