Workplace charging benefits

Cost savings

More than two thirds of plug-in hybrid cars (PHEVs) sold so far in the UK were bought by company fleets. As EVs are around 10p per mile cheaper to run than equivalent petrol or diesel vehicles this can show a considerable saving over large distances.

Sustainability

Installing EV charge points at the workplace is a powerful carbon reduction initiative. Using backend software, a number of metrics can be monitored and tracked, including the number of electric miles powered and carbon dioxide saving.

Employee recruitment and retention

Having access to workplace charging is an additional benefit for employees and can become an affordable part of a wider benefits package. It can also help to attract employees that are particularly motivated by environmental issues.

Corporate Social Responsibility

Installing workplace chargepoints shows leadership in sustainability and demonstrates commitment to curbing emission.
