To celebrate Clean Air Day, Pod Point is making its Open Charge Network free for EV drivers on Thursday 21st June.
The entire public charging network – including rapid chargers – will be on free vend for the 24 hours from midnight on the 21st until midnight on the 22nd June.
The initiative follows on from the success of a similar scheme for Earth Day 2018 in April, which powered more than 147,000 EV miles at no cost to drivers.
Pod Point CEO and Founder, Erik Fairbairn, said: “Thanks to initiatives like Clean Air Day, the public are now beginning to really understand the negative effects of burning fossil fuels on the air that we breath.
“Pod Point was founded on the principle that travel shouldn’t damage the Earth. We have made significant progress towards this via our national network of charge points, but we still have a massive amount to do. We hope that making our entire public network free to use for Clean Air Day further accelerates the adoption of EVs.”
Drivers using the Open Charge Network will charge and pay via the app as usual, with Pod Point reimbursing any payments made via in-app credit within 2-3 working days.
