CHARGING POINTS FOR ELECTRIC CARS
If you need them, we can arrange them for you
Electric cars becoming more common
The state also supports the development of electric vehicle charging infrastructure in Finland through various financial supports:
Charging support is for companies seeking support for public download points. Depending on the charging speed of the charging points to be installed, the support covers 30-35% of the investment cost.
The grant applied from ARA is intended for housing company and covers 35% of the costs of constructing charging points for electric cars and needed modifications for the property’s electrical system. Design costs are also eligible for support. The maximum amount of support is 90,000€ and the qualification for the housing company is, that they build at least five charging points for electrical cars.
Our guidelines provide our customers with assistance in applying for support.
Designing begins by making a preliminary report for electric car charging
In preliminary report we investigate, if the property’s current electrical network and electricity connection are strong enough for the electric car charging. If those are strong enough, we will also find out the maximum number of charging points. The determining factors for the adequacy of the electricity network are main fuse size of the electricity connection and cable strenghts of car heating cables (if the current car heating network is utilized for electric car charging).
Our preliminary report is based on the avalaible current electrical drawings and an on-site visit. With on-site visit, we will map out he most suitable solutions for electric car chargings.
the result of our work is a written report, in which we describe the suitability of the current electrical system of the property for charging electric cars. In our view, we also present the best solutions for the implementation of charging points for electric cars. Our report also includes cost estimates for different solutions.
From the preliminary report to actual implementation designing
In the implementation designing phase, we choose along with the customer the most suitable charging station types for the customers needs. We design the locations of the charging stations, cabling routes, and maybe necessary strenghtenings to property’s electricity network.
We can provide electric car charging points as a turnkey service, which includes needed preliminary report, implementation designing, competitive tendering, construction contracting and work site supervising.
