ENGIE has collaborated with GreenPoint Services to provide residents in Surrey with electric vehicle (EV) charging facilities.
Thanks to this new project, residents of the newly developed Luddington House in Virginia Water will now have access to 20 7kW EV chargers.
The chargers will be operated and managed by ENGIE’s GeniePoint Network, this will mean that residents can access 24/7 customer service. Residents will also have access to ENGIE’s expanding network of rapid chargers across the country.
This project will mean that residents can conveniently charge their electric vehicles from the comfort of their own home.
Drivers can access these chargers either via the GeniePoint App or through their website.
Charlie Grumbridge, director at Greenpoint Services, said:’Being so close to London, many residents use their electric vehicles to drive into the City as they are exempt from the London Congestion Charge.
‘The residents want to know their vehicles will be left to charge reliably while they are at home, and GeniePoint provides that experience which together with its established nationwide network of chargers gives a first-class EV charging solution.’
Alex Bamberg, managing director at ENGIE EV Solutions, added: ‘A significant proportion of charging of EVs takes place at home, so providing accessible, affordable, safe charging infrastructure is key in encouraging consumers in their decision to purchase an electric vehicle and supporting the UK’s journey on its Road to Zero.’
In related news, earlier this year ENGIE offered free EV charging to existing GeniePoint Network drivers as well as new registrations, to key workers operating in critical roles during the coronavirus pandemic.
