Electric Vehicles / Low-Carbon Technology - Timescales

Typical timescales for connecting EV charging points to the distribution network:

Size of Project Type of installation Typical times
Small (up to 70 kVA) 1 to 3 fast, or 1 rapid 8 - 10 weeks
Medium (70 - 200 kVA) 3 to 5 fast, or 1 - 3 rapid 8 - 16 weeks
Large (200+ kVA) 5+ fast, or 3+ rapid 24 - 30 weeks

Note that the table above indicates the typical times for connections to the network from the start of the project.
Actual time to connect may be shorter or longer than times indicated and is dependant upon:
  • Size of project / number and type of charging points required
  • Location of the scheme
  • Quality of the existing network (load availability)
  • Legal restraints (cable easements / wayleaves for third-party land)
  • Lead times of high-value plant (ie substations) if required
  • Streetworks licences for excavations in the public highway
