FAQs

For additional FAQ’s please visit our support site here

The vast majority of UK properties run off a single-phase power supply which happily supports 7kW chargers. To benefit from 7kW charging the first thing to check is the size of your property’s main fuse.

It is preferable to have a 100A main fuse to run a 7kW charger.
This is required to allow the load of the charge point.

If you have less than a 100A main fuse then we are able to install an Andersen charger, but we will need to downgrade it to provide less than 7kW. 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. If you are unable to find it, please call your electricity provider to clarify your fuse rating.

How to determine your fuse amperage

Example of a 100A Main Fuse

A 22kW charger has the capability to charge your EV up to 22kW per hour. It is 3 times faster than a 7kW charger. 22kW charging can only be supported by households that have a three-phase electrical set up. Most houses in the UK are single-phase and can only support a maximum of 7kW charging.

Single-Phase Electrical Supply 22kW charging is not supported. You can still purchase a 7kW charger
Three-Phase Electrical Supply 22kW charging is supported. You can purchase either a 7kW or a 22kW charger

85% of installations are 7kW Standard installation. Please refer to our online guide table here for full guidance.

If you aren’t sure, it is best to place your order selecting 7kW installation. Once we receive your order, you’ll be asked to fill in a survey. The information you provide enables our installation team to determine whether you have a standard or non-standard install. If the engineer needs more information, they will contact you. Otherwise, the engineer will email you to confirm that you have standard installation and offer a prospective install date.

If your installation is non-standard, Andersen will give you a quote and if you decide to not proceed, we will give you a full refund.

A dedicated circuit needs to run from the fuse board to the proposed location of where you wish to put your charge point.

If you select Andersen installation, you can choose to either complete an online survey (free) or a physical site survey (payable). A physical survey is where our engineer will come into your property to carry out your survey in person. The online survey allows us to confirm whether your installation is standard or not. It’s convenient and accurate enough for us to see if any extra work is needed; for example a new distribution board or more labour (such as drilling through more walls). Whichever survey you choose, we will provide a quote, and should you wish not to proceed, we’ll offer you a full refund.

If you are having your house renovated and would like your own electrician to lay the supply cable before we come to install the Andersen, ask them to check the table for the cable spec you will need the below depending on the power charger you are getting.
