What Our Customers Are Saying

The service we have received from AC1 has been superb - from the responsive and helpful office staff to the electrician who installed our ev charger.

The electrician was excellent. He removed the old pendant light fittings and put up the new ones. He made sure they were the correct height and was extremely tidy. He was also friendly and completed the work quickly to a high standard.
Chris Augustine

Excellent service. Would use them again.
Michael Riminton

A great team and fantastic overall experience for setting up EV charger. Natalie was impeccably responsive and reliable. Tony came twice, once for the site visit and the other to help us make sure the charger worked as it took a bit of fuss to setup but Tony was thorough throughout and made sure we know what we are getting and is up to a high standard. Jon the electrician did an incredible job running the cable through our staircase, along the skirt line, with a neat looking and perfectly fitted cover, through the front wall and the charger was fitted perfectly beside our front door. Brilliant service and an excellent team. Would undoubtedly recommend.
Kevin Kan

AC1 Electrical was the 3rd company we had tried after we had been let down and taken advantage of for work needed on our Grade 2 listed property. Tony and his team worked with us to ensure that the work was all completed whilst being respectful of the property and the finished result is beyond our expectations. We would not hesitate recommending them to anyone and will be using them again for our next project!

I found AC1 form a web search and they completed EICR and rectification works on my mums empty house prior to sale in a very expedient and professional matter, Natalie was super communicative/efficient to deal with and thier services are set up digitally so very each to utilize. I found them to be good value too. Certainly recommend them to others for work in Central London.
Eamon Sheehan

Used AC1 twice now, one time for an EICR and one time for an extractor fan and adding additional plug socket. Great service received both times from both the office and the electrician, very friendly and professional. They were able to fit in the appointments quickly as well. Highly recommended and will use again for future electrical work. Thanks again.

Do I need planning permission for an EV charging point?

In most circumstances, planning permission isn’t a necessity when installing an EV charging point onto your premises. Residential areas and areas lawfully used for off-street parking do not require planning permission, but if your EV charging points are being used commercially it’s always worth checking with your local council.

How long does it take to charge my electric vehicle?

The length of time it takes to charge your electric vehicle depends on the size of your battery and the speed of the charging point. EV charging can take from as little as half an hour to 12 hours to complete, but on average takes under 8 hours.
