British Gas to offer free charging units to Toyota Hybrid customers
The company will install 16-amp data-enabled charging points, complete with a connector suitable for the customer’s vehicle, free of charge to qualifying Toyota customers.
British Gas claims that the charging units will allow a full recharge in approximately an hour and a half from a standard 230V domestic power supply.
There will also be the option for customers to pay for upgrades, including a 32 rather than 16-amp point, and installation only, where the unit is replacing an existing charging point.
To qualify for the offer, customers need to have off-street parking and appropriate permissions from the homeowner or landlord. The charge point is data enabled, so requires a suitable 02 data network connection – the customer does not need to have an account with 02, simply their property needs to be able to receive the 02 signal. Similarly, they do not need to be British Gas energy customers.
Customers that take up the offer will also be given free access to the POLAR national network of public charging and rapid charging points through to the end of March next year.
