POD Point launches business leasing for charging points
Said to be a European first, the partnership means businesses can lease a POD Point charging point for £50 per month, including professional installation, and use the company’s pay-as-you-go facilities. This would previously have cost over £1,000 plus VAT for a Solo unit.
The pricing means businesses can offer electric vehicle charging to customers and employees, providing workplace access and the ability to feature on POD Point’s UK-wide network. Two charges per day, at £2 for a park and charge, are said to cover the cost of rental and energy costs for owners.
Erik Fairbairn, chief executive of POD Point, said: ‘POD Point is moving EV charging into the mass market. We are on a mission to make sure there are 100,000 POD Points across the country by 2020, and innovative commercial models such as our lease scheme are instrumental in allowing us to reach this goal.’
