Start Your EV Journey

Alec Quarton Electrical, based in Ryedale, is helping homeowners and businesses install charge points for the new electric cars.

Alec explains: “In recent years we have watched green technologies develop and see Electric Vehicles as a large part of the country’s future. We saw a need for a local specialist installer.”

The UK government has set a phase-out date for the cessation of sales of petrol and diesel cars in the UK: 2030. To reach this target—and follow through on the UK’s target to become the fastest G7 country to decarbonise cars and vans—there must be a roll-out of charge points for electric vehicles across the UK. And, to incentivise homeowners, businesses, and local authorities to invest in greener transport, the UK government is providing a number of grants. The Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) is offered by the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) and covers 75% of purchase and installation cost for one charge point. The Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS) conversely offers a 75% contribution to the purchase and installation cost of up to 40 charge point sockets per company. (More details of both these grants and criteria of eligibility are available on the government website.)

Established in 2008, Alec Quarton Electrical provides an electrical contracting service throughout Ryedale, Hambleton, and York from their base in Hovingham. They can supply, install, and maintain a variety of charge points—Smart and Basic, tethered and untethered, 3.6KW, 7KW and 22KW—for both homeowners and businesses. The team can also help you access government grants, offering free site surveys, in addition to helping you through the confusing paperwork and eligibility criteria.

The service offered by Alec Quarton is local and reliable. Graham Matthews, a recent customer, said: “I found it extremely difficult finding a good supplier and installer of a home charging point for my new electric car. Alec Quarton was worth the search. He is reliable, charming, helpful and customer-focused. Furthermore, he is price-competitive and very knowledgeable of car charging. Without hesitation, I would recommend him.”

Alec says: “Our engineers are all qualified to a minimum of NVQ 3 and comply with BS7671. They are accredited by the Napit governing body and are Part P & 18th ed qualified.”
