ChargePoint Services adds to support for Source East network


ChargePoint Services has committed to continue allowing Source East customers to access its points in the region, along with offering free installations to upgrade legacy points for site owners once the charging network shuts down on 31st March.

The company already has a number of points on the Source East network since it was brought in by the operators to improve the free-to-access scheme. Those operators have since said that the network will have to shut down due to a lack of funding, but ChargePoint Services – alongside Chargemaster’s Polar and NewMotion – have offered to step in and improve access.

ChargePoint Services has said that existing Source East card holders will continue to be able to access the company’s points in the region. ChargePoint Services has also offered to upgrade any legacy hardware at no cost, and shift the points to a pay-as-you-go system.

The company has also stated that it will work with any interested local authorities and private sector hosts to install and operate rapid and fast chargers across the region.

Keith Bevis of Evalu8 said: “ChargePoint Services is working to make EV charging easily accessible to all drivers across multiple EV networks. We have worked together in delivering robust and dependable charging solutions to customers in the Source East region.

ChargePoint Services’ own rapidly expanding GeniePoint Network is built on a secure, cloud based platform backed up by an excellent customer care capability, which means EV drivers can now travel the country in their low emission vehicles.”

Alex Bamberg, Managing Director, ChargePoint Services, said: “We are resolutely focusing our energies on expanding the GeniePoint Network, this is being achieved through shared partnerships with host organisations as well as our comprehensive fully funded programme offering the total cost of installation and hardware to hosts of suitable sites.”

ChargePoint Services specialises in rapid charger installation, with simple pay-as-you-go payment costs to allow easy access to the points. Users can register any RFID card, including those of other networks or London’s Oyster card for example, to enable access, with an app also available.
