Fleets offered full finance packages for smart EV chargers

By / 7 months ago / UK News / No Comments

EV chargepoint reseller Raw Charging has teamed up with ChargePoint and Close Brothers Asset Finance to offer full finance packages for smart electric vehicle chargers.

The partnership brings fleets access to fully financed installation across the range of ChargePoint solutions

The move enables fleets to have smart electric vehicle chargers installed in their car parks and spread the cost over five to seven years through funding from Close Brothers Asset Finance. Solutions are supplied from the ChargePoint range and offer software tools such as power and energy management, as well as a web portal that empowers businesses to more effectively manage both the time and cost of charging.

“With the impending growth of the electric vehicle market in the UK it is essential that companies and organisations are able to spread the cost of both the equipment and installation of the infrastructure,” said Bruce Galliford, CEO, RAW Charging. “It was important for us to have a strong finance partner who could match the sophistication of the ChargePoint network and expected demand over the coming years of growth.”

ChargePoint’s Tony Mills, director, commercial accounts & channels (Europe), added: “The revolution in mobility is upon us and the signs are clear, the shift to mass electric transportation is an unstoppable train with no signs of turning back. ChargePoint is committed to helping pave the way to an all-electric future and collaborating with partners like Close Brothers Asset Finance and RAW Charging is key to building out the fuelling network of the future that will support the shift to electric mobility and transition to fleets in the years to come.”
