Electric vehicles are now becoming a more common sight within UK businesses. UK Government ministers have stated that they are committed to making the UK a “world leader in the electric car industry”. The significantly lower running costs and ‘green’ ethos of an electric car compared to a petrol or diesel vehicle make choosing electric cars for your fleet a viable option.

Looking to offer your employees or customers Electric Car Charging Points?

Businesses looking to install commercial car charging points must first decide on their intended usage.

A range of units are available, from standalone free-to-use non-communicating units, to communicating systems with connected back-office platform for management and billing purposes.

Charging Infrastructure

There are a wide choice of access options and network schemes available for you to choose from:

Free to use

Any person with a compatible charging lead can simply plug in and go.



Provides you with an element of control as users will need a key to start the charging process.


Token or Coin

This is a pre-paid method, where users are issued with a pre-paid coin for use.


RFID/ Smart Phone App

Charging sessions are initiated by either a RFID card or Smart Phone App. Businesses can control usage with an internal monitoring system.


Bank Card Access/ PAYG

Charging sessions are initiated by a credit or debit card at the charging point and work in a similar way to car parking machines.

“We wanted to offer an electric car charging point for our employees onsite. Philip and his team were knowledgeable and efficient when offering advice about the options available. Following how pleased we were with the initial work Norcroft carried out for us, we then asked Philip to recommend a solution to our warehouse lighting. He suggested installing low energy consuming LED lighting, which sounded like a great idea – we keep the brightness required to work whilst also reducing the power consumption. We are extremely pleased with the work carried out by Philip and the Norcroft Energy team.”

‘We were looking for a reliable installer to provide an electric vehicle charging point for our customers in Sheffield and contacted Norcroft Electrical for a quotation.  From start to finish they were straightforward, easy to deal with and explained the options to us making the choice of unit simple.  The electricians who attended were on-time, polite and cleared up after themselves making everything hassle free, working round obstacles and finding practical solutions where needed.  I would recommend Norcroft to anyone wanting to update and future proof their home or business by offering electric vehicle charging, as their service was everything that could have been hoped for.’
