Current demand for electric car charging points is increasing every year. This is being driven by changes to government policy which intend to eliminate all petrol and diesel cars by 2040. This means that in the run up to this change, domestic meter installs are predicted to rise drastically.

Essentially you will be able to carry out any type of domestic installation plus install the charging points too.
