Charge point installation platform Rightcharge has partnered with one of the UK’s leading breakdown providers Green Flag to help accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles in Britain. By simplifying the process of installing an EV charge point at work or at home the partnership aims to unlock the benefits of smart charging for EV drivers.
Drivers can choose from a selection of home charge points, access market-leading prices from a network of over 100 vetted installers and pay for their installation via Rightcharge. This gives added protection, in the same way that travellers get extra protection when paying their host via Airbnb.
Rightcharge’s Installer Management System, named ‘Flow’, monitors every single customer’s journey showing only offers from installation partners that are performing at the top of their game. As a result, every GreenFlag member can access quick responses and high-quality installations. Green Flag customers could also save on average £434 a year on energy bills and charge using electricity that is around 25% cleaner than that consumed during peak hours, by opting for a smart charger that automatically schedules charging for when it is cheapest and most sustainable.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be working with GreenFlag to make EV charging easier, cleaner, cheaper and more accessible for even more drivers,” said Charlie Cook CEO of Rightcharge. “We’re excited to build this relationship to create a greener, more sustainable future for Britain.”
As of the end of April 2023, there were more than 1,250,500 plug-in electric cars in the UK with over 760,000 battery-electric vehicles and 490,000 PHEVs registered. That figure is rising as the country prepares for the 2030 ban on new petrol and diesel vehicle sales and the public charging infrastructure continues to improve.
“EV ownership continues to rise in popularity amongst our customers and Rightcharge is the go-to site for drivers looking for recommendations around their home EV charging,” said Katie Lomas Managing Director of Green Flag. “This partnership allows us to combine our expertise to better provide a seamless driving and charging experience for our customers.”
