Buyer Beware - Make a Smart Decision with your new EV Smart Charger says Ohme

Drivers buying a new electric vehicle charger after 1 July should ensure it meets the latest regulations, warns multiple award-winning smart charger provider Ohme.

With new Government regulations arriving this week requiring all home and workplace electric car chargers to have smart capability, Ohme is concerned that some non-compliant chargers may still be sold after the 30 June cut-off date by individual sellers outside of official channels.

Ohme Sales Director Stuart Clark explains:

“Retailers are legally bound to only sell smart chargers from 1 July and there are numerous advantages to buying a smart charger such as our Ohme Home Pro, which meets the latest regulations.
“If anyone buying a new EV charger is in doubt, they should check with the manufacturer or retailer and ask to see the Statement of Compliance for the charger which will confirm that it meets the latest regulations.”

The new regulations mean that all smart chargers need to have a data connection to be able to measure and transmit records so that drivers can view their charging history. Drivers should ensure that their new charger meets the new regulations to take advantage of these new functions and for an improved charging experience in the future.

The new regulations are intended to help the National Grid to adapt to the new demands of EVs and encourage drivers towards using smarter tariffs to avoid charging during peak hours. All Ohme Home Pro chargers installed from 1 July will meet the needs of the new regulations.

Ohme’s Home Pro enables drivers to take advantage of all the times of low price charging, not just particular set hours by connecting with the grid in real-time automatically. Using the Ohme app, drivers can set the Home Pro to charge their vehicle when prices drop below a set point. Ohme also allows drivers the option to charge their car with renewable energy generation on the grid is at its highest.

Ohme is the official charger provider for customers on the Motability scheme, the largest UK fleet operator in the UK, and has been named as the Best Electric Charging Point Provider by Business Motoring and voted number one for customer service in Auto Express magazine’s 2022 Driver Power survey.
