EV charge points across Huddersfield

As the world moves towards sustainable energy, electric vehicles (EVs) have become increasingly popular. While EVs offer a cleaner and greener alternative to traditional vehicles, finding charge points to keep them running can be challenging. This article will explore the availability and location of electric vehicle charge points across Huddersfield.

Understanding Electric Vehicle Charging

Before delving into the locations of charge points, it is important to understand the different types of charging available for EVs. There are three main types of EV charging:

Rapid Charging (DC)

Rapid charging is the fastest type of charging and can provide up to 80% of a battery’s charge in just 30 minutes. These chargers use direct current (DC) to charge the battery, and are typically found in motorway service stations and other high-traffic areas.

Fast Charging (AC)

Fast charging provides a more moderate charging rate than rapid charging, and can provide up to 80% of a battery’s charge in 1-2 hours. These chargers use alternating current (AC) to charge the battery, and are typically found in public parking areas and other convenient locations.

Slow Charging (AC)

Slow charging provides the slowest charging rate, but is also the most widely available. These chargers use alternating current (AC) to charge the battery, and can take up to 8 hours to fully charge a battery. These chargers are typically found in residential areas, workplaces, and other locations where EVs may be parked for an extended period.

Rainworth (Yorkshire) Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 651618). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Rainworth (Yorkshire) Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

 

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
