Recharge is a regional network of EV charge points covering the Liverpool City Region, operated by Charge Your Car on behalf of Merseytravel.
Those who want to join the network need to sign up with an account before they can access Recharge charge points. Once registration is complete, points can be operated via RFID card or smartphone app.
Recharge points are free to use after the annual £20 cost for the RFID card, and the £1 connection fee that is applied each time a network member begins a charge.

Finding Recharge points on Zap-Map
All Recharge points can be found on Zap-Map by using the network filter. This can be used on the desktop and mobile apps, and displays only those points available to use by Recharge customers and customers of associated networks.
Charging types and speeds can be filtered too, showing only those points that are compatible with users’ cars.
Accessing points on other networks
There are more than a dozen Recharge charge points on Zap-Map, with more than 25 connectors available for network customers. Members also have access to the wider Charge Your Car network, with more than 1,000 charge points and 1,500 connectors available.
The network is an key element in the region’s e-mobility strategy, which aims to accelerate the uptake of electric vehicles in the area.
Set up by Merseytravel and the local authorities within the Liverpool City Region, Recharge has benefited from funding the Office of Low Emission Vehicles, and the Local Growth Deal Funding.
