STATUS OF EV CAR IN CORK COUNTY

Cork City Council has taken the lead nationwide by installing at least 76 electric cars (EVs) in operation and thus creating the largest local authority fleet of EVs across the country.

The decision of the Cork City Council to switch to electric vehicles is a major element of the city’s Climate Action Plan which advocates the need to cut down on emissions mobility. Electric vehicles improve air quality and produce less than half of the carbon emissions from petrol vehicles and improve the health of Cork’s residents and better to live in.

Also, it will benefit huge savings of as much as €700,000 over the course of five years after the deployment of the electric fleet that will replace diesel vehicles.

ACA (TAX INCENTIVE SCHEME FOR BUSINESSES) – Commercial Installing EV Car Chargers in Cork

It is the Accelerated Capital Allowance Tax is an incentive scheme that is an incentive plan designed to motivate businesses to invest in new technologies that help save energy.

Just had a wallbox car charger installed by Ecoplex, I have to say these guys are great. From my initial enquiry through to the final installation, everything was explained and when the guys came to do the install, they were very friendly and couldn't have been more professional. What a great service, I'd highly recommend - Thank you !

After a good bit of research, I selected Ecoplex for my EC Home Charging unit. The decision was made based on the speed of response to my initial enquiry, the assessment of which unit (Wallbox Plus) would be most appropriate and the information in advance regarding what would be involved in installation - Ecoplex was the only supplier that confirmed (based on the same information given to each) that it could be linked to my external meter cabinet as opposed to having to link it to my internal main fuse board. This was important to me. Joanna & Emer in the office and electrician Dessie who installed it were friendly, knowledgeable and professional in everything they did. Thank you.

Just had Dessie and Matthew out from ecoplex this afternoon to fit a car charger. Couldn’t of asked for a better service. The lads took me through everything and explained everything I needed to do to finish my application for the gov. Grant. Was a pleasure to deal with the company from the 1st phone call. Will be recommending to others.

After much research I went with Ecoplex for the installation of my EV home charger. They were able to answer all of my questions before installation and the electrical work was of a high standard - with the electrician even working with the ESB on the upgrades. Joanna, Emer and Dessie (electrician) all very helpful and friendly to work with. I would recommend Ecoplex if you are considering a similar job.

How long does it take to charge my electric car?

There are many factors that’ll have an impact on your power consumption and time to charge. 

How long it takes to charge your electric car really depends on the type of charging station and your car model. Driving style, traffic speed and road conditions all have an impact on power consumption.

What does it cost to charge my electric car?

The average electricity fee at night is about €0,095 per kWh in Ireland at night (consumer rate). Let’s say your electric car has an empty battery and approximately 40 kWh capacity. Depending on your driving style, your car should be able to reach approximately 280 to 320 km on a single charge. Charging your electric car would cost a total of 40 x 0.095 = €3.80. This means that the power consumption per 100 kilometres is just around €1,24-1,28.

Can I charge my car on any charger?

Yes and no. Just like regular electricity outlets, charging stations may have different outlets and connectors depending on the country where you’re charging and your car brand’s origin. Luckily, to make things less complicated, car manufacturers and most countries have now reduced the options to just 2 types of outlets and connectors. From the car’s side, a Type 1 socket is common for Japanese and American vehicles, and a Type 2 socket is common for European vehicles. Note: all Tesla models have a specific type of socket in the US, whereas in Europe, all Tesla models are equipped with a Type 2 socket. From the charging station’s side, all chargers in both Europe and the US are equipped with a Type 2 socket. A charging station with a fixed cable is an exception; in this case, you would always have to check if the attached cable fits into your car’s socket.

How much maintenance does a car charger need?

Very little. Despite being an advanced technology, electric cars are remarkably simple to maintain. The same is true for EV charging stations. If installed properly and built modularly, every piece can be easily replaced. Charging stations with online connectivity also enable remote diagnostics and repair, so you won’t be left stranded in the rare event of charger malfunction

Can electric car chargers be charged in the rain?

Yes, of course. Electric vehicles can definitely be charged in the rain as proper covering shields and protective layers are applied to the charging plugs and charging stations. That prevents any kind of sparks, current loss, water mixing or short circuit.
