EV Charger Installation Guidelines


We are passionate about customer service.
We offer bespoke installation in the UK for every Andersen EV Charger we sell.
Our Standard Installation costs £400. We also run our Andersen Local Installer network, using accredited engineers specifically trained to install your Andersen charge point.


Where do I start?

The first thing to do is to check your supply fuse amperage.
It is preferable to have a 100A main fuse. This is required to allow the load of the charge point.
If you have a 60A main fuse it is advisable to upgrade your supply to 100A. Upgrades are carried out by your electricity power network.
You can find your main fuse linked to your electricity supply meter. There should be a label on the side of the fuse showing the Amp rating or your electricity provider can clarify the fuse rating.

If not please call your electricity provider to clarify your fuse rating.

Example of a 60A main fuse

If you have 60amps, we can install an Andersen EV charger, but will to reduce it’s power so it doesn’t overload the incoming supply.
The reduction of the power is subject to the current loading on your property. We can only determine this on the day of installation.

How do I know if I’ve got standard installation?

Most installations are standard, but there are a few occasions where additional work is necessary.
