Electrical Testing

Fyfe Wilson has a team of experienced electricians available who are NICEIC registered and have level 3 certificates for electrical installations to BS7671 2008 (18th edition). Our electricians are also JIB (ECS) certified (A CSCS scheme) and hold up to date SPA safety passports.

For breakdown, and fault finding, a 24 service is available by arrangement.

As NICEIC qualified electricians, we are also to carry out periodic inspection and testing of electrical installations which is often required under commercial insurance policies. We will prepare a report to identify any redial works that need to be undertaken. A quotation can then be provided to address these items.

The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 state that any electrical equipment that has the potential to cause injury or harm must be maintained and kept in a cafe condition.

You will receive an EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report) once we have completed your testing and we will then supply you with a free, no-obligation remedial quote for anything that we feel needs fixing.

Once all the remedial works are complete, we will provide you with an EICR Certificate which is valid for 1-5 years (dependent on your business type).

EV Charging

We have our Electricians trained by the NICEIC to install EV Chargers for Domestic and Light Industrial category, there are generally 3 levels of Charging:

Level 1 charger

Level 1 charging is when you plug your electric car into the socket with a standard AC power plug. As a standard household outlet only delivers a maximum of 2.3 kW, charging via a Level 1 charger is the slowest way to charge an EV—giving only 4 to 5 miles of range per hour. As there is no communication between the power outlet and the vehicle, this method is not only slow, but it can also be dangerous for your safety and your vehicle. As such, we don’t recommend relying on Level 1 charging to charge your vehicle except for in emergency circumstances.

Level 2 charger

A Level 2 charger is any standard AC charging point that you may find mounted to a wall, on a pole, or standing in the ground. Level 2 charging stations commonly deliver anywhere between 3.4 kW - 22 kW and are usually found at residential, public parking, businesses, and commercial locations. At the maximum output of 22 kW, an hour’s charging will provide roughly 75 miles to your battery’s range. This is a lot faster than Level 1 charging. Because of this reason, combined with a range of intelligent functionalities, smart connectivity options, and a range of safety features that Level 2 chargers have to offer, many EV drivers invest in an AC charging point for home.

Level 3 charging station (DC fast charger)

Also known as DC or fast charging, Level 3 charging uses direct current (DC) to charge a vehicle’s battery directly, bypassing the AC/DC onboard converter. This allows Level 3 chargers to deliver DC power directly to the battery. As a result, Level 3 charging stations can deliver more power, faster, making them ideal for short-stop locations like service stations and fleet depots. Charging times vary between different vehicles and power outputs, however, generally speaking, Level 3 chargers can charge a vehicle in minutes versus hours for Level 2 or days for Level 1 charging stations.

Generally speaking, the higher the level, the higher the power output and the faster your new vehicle will charge.
