Ohme and Smart Home Charge team up to simplify charging

Smart Home Charge, a national electric car charge point installer, has partnered with manufacturer Ohme to simplify the installation process and reduce the cost of charging for drivers.

The partnership will simplify the ordering, installation and use of electric car chargers

The new partnership will see the companies work together to simplify the ordering, installation and use of electric car chargers.

Smart Home Charge is now an approved installer of Ohme’s intelligent charger range which, when combined with a time-of-use energy tariff, can save electric car drivers £250-400 per year versus charging on a standard tariff, according to the firms, who also say charging has been too complicated in the past.

Graham Warby, managing director and founder of Smart Home Charge, said: “In addition to a simple quotation process, it’s important the chargers themselves and associated apps are simple too. I believe many drivers will just want a charger that automatically charges their EV at the cheapest rates with minimal fuss. At Smart Home Charge we aim to simplify the installation process for the customer and our new partnership with Ohme is the latest step in removing the mystery around electric car charging and helping save drivers money.”

Stefan Jensen, head of strategic partnerships at Ohme, also said that charge point manufacturers need to cater to the everyday driver as well as enthusiasts and early adopters:

“All drivers are different – some will want to access the charger apps and see what is going on while many drivers will just want to plug their car in and forget about it. Working with Smart Home Charge, Ohme is providing this flexibility to EV owners.”
