a saving we pass on to you!

  • APi are OLEV authorised installers
  • Using the IET code of practice, NIC EIC and British Standards Regulations (B.S 7671) we ensure the installation complies with all current regulations.
  • We provide a (DEI) Domestic Electrical Installation Certificate after successfully testing each installation.
  • We will never compromise your safety.

To help you have a better idea of any prospective costs  *standard installation pricing is based on the following:

*Manufacturer’s Standard Installation’ Criteria:

Please visit our OLEV Application Forms page these forms are required to be completed for the EVHS £500 EVHS Grant Contribution.

Don’t worry if your installation falls outside any of the above ‘Standard Installation’ criteria, these criteria are based on manufacturer’s advertised prices.

‘From as little as’ – In most cases, there may be some small additional costs, but only ever if absolutely required due to regulations or location requirements.

If so, these will be itemised in our supplied quotations.
