We are unlike other public chargepoint operators, we allow those without access to off-street parking to charge for a reduced cost and less than a 5-minute walk from their home. As we are a community benefit society, all profits from shares or subscriptions go straight back into the community by installing more EV chargepoints in the local area.
As a light user, you can save up to 367 kg CO2 per year, by switching your petrol or diesel vehicle to an electric vehicle. With this saving, you could power a LED lightbulb for 9 years!
As a medium user, you can save up to 709 kg CO2 per year, by switching your petrol or diesel vehicle to an electric vehicle. This is the equivalent of driving from Lancaster to Baku, Azerbaijan in an ICE vehicle (4 982 km).

CHARGE WITH US FROM JUST 38p/kWh
There are two ways to charge with us:
If you do not have access to home charging, we will aim to install a chargepoint no more than 5 minutes away from your home. Our subscription service is unique to any other public chargepoint network, we offer three packages to suit your needs:
Heavy user: £75 / month (up to 200kWh per month, then 38p/kWh thereafter)
Medium user: £55 / month (up to 135kWh per month, then 41p/kWh thereafter)
Light user: £32.50 / month (up to 75kWh per month, then 43p/kWh thereafter)
Light users are those who drive roughly 80 miles a week and Medium users tend to drive roughly 120 miles a week (Subject to: temperature, driving conditions and speed). A subscription allows you to charge your vehicle at a reduced rate, much cheaper than most public networks.
Our chargepoints operate at either a maximum of 22kW or 7kW, but the actual rate of charge depends on the car. They employ Active Load Management to balance the load on the local network at times of high demand. Vehicles will charge at the maximum possible rate available at the time. For example:
A Nisan Leaf would get enough power to drive 70 miles on a 3-hour charge.
A Renault Zoe would get enough power to drive 70 miles on a 1-hour charge.
