Our solutions and chargers for new builds

EV charging installation

We will work with you and your local planning authorities.

Local planning authorities are asking housing developers like you to provide sufficient power for all parking bays on new builds. You may be asked to make either

(a) 20% of allocated bays active and 80% as passive, or
(b) install charging points for 100% of all parking bays upon completion.

However, asking developers to provide power for all parking bays presents some key issues

  • The power requirements create a significant strain on National Grid
  • Costs to implement sufficient power is being absorbed by the developer
  • This power allocation will never be fully used

ECC UK has successfully consulted with local planning authorities and housing developers to provide a communal charging point solution that requires significantly less power and provides faster charging speed.

Know which EV charging solution works best for you

There are two main options for installing EV chargers for apartment blocks


Option 1 : Communal chargers

Communal chargers are the most effective way of implementing chargers for apartment blocks and is fast becoming a more sustainable solution for high density residential developments, especially where the development has the possibility for spare parking bays and a 3 phase supply.


Option 2: Allocated chargers

Allocated chargers are installed in a residents designated parking bay or installed on a buildings driveway. Allocated chargers are for sole use of the tenant and a single phase 7kW is perfectly acceptable for this kind of charging requirement.

Which should you choose?

If you happen to have both options, here is what you need to know to make the right decision.

A 3 phase supply will enable you to install a 22kW communal charger which can typically keep around 14 electric vehicles on the road. This can therefore be a significantly more cost effective charger for a property manager or management company to install, than it would to install an equivalent 14 properties with a dedicated 7kW charging point.

Comparison based on 14 electric vehicles being served power:

Charger type Qty Vehicles served Total kVa
Communal 22kW 1 14 22.2kVa
Allocated 7kW 14 14 103.6kVa

Whilst not all electric vehicles can charge at 22kW today, more and more electric vehicles are being launched that can take an 11kW or 22kW charging speed.

How does the landlord get reimbursed?

Electric Car Chargers UK Ltd provide a solution that allows the resident to pay for the electricity they use to charge their vehicle, and this automatically reimburses the landlord for their supply.

We have case studies for both communal and allocated charging solutions and would welcome the opportunity of reviewing your requirements.

Case study: Little Stanion – Communal chargers for apartment blocks
Case study: Project Etopia – Allocated charging solution

We will design your solution based on the immediate and future needs of the development and help you meet your planning requirements and section 106.
